French M&A practitioners believe that both established and emerging technologies, perhaps built-in to the next generation of virtual data rooms, could transform key areas of the M&A process. How else do they envision things changing?

Our new report surveyed French M&A practitioners from corporates, private equity firms, investments banks, and law and professional services firms, to find out:

  • How digitally mature and technologically sophisticated is the M&A, due diligence, and asset marketing process in France?
  • How are dealmakers in France using technology to get ahead?
  • How can technology benefit and advance other areas of M&A in France?
  • Which technologies will transform the M&A process the most by 2025?

What's Inside?

  • 2020 The Current State of M&A in France
  • 2025 The Future State of M&A in France
