Deal Drivers EMEA - 2018 Half-Year Edition

Merrill Corporation is pleased to present the exclusive Deal Drivers: EMEA HY 2018 report, in association with Mergermarket.

This report presents a review of mergers and acquisitions in the EMEA region throughout the first half of 2018 and provides insight into key trends as well as region and sector activity.

Highlights of the report include:

  • Deal value for European M&A in H1 2018 rose 16% from the same period last year, amid continuing GDP growth in EU countries.
  • Challenges are still apparent in the form of ongoing political upheaval. With the prospect of Brexit, some UK companies appear to be turning inwards, with domestic deals forming 43% of total M&A value for UK targets in H1 2018.
  • The Middle East and North Africa attracted €11.8bn across 70 transactions this year, with Energy, Mining and Utilities (EMU) recording the highest number of deals in the region.
  • The Pharma, Medical and Biotech (PMB) sector continued to show its strength in H1 2018, with €108.3bn-worth of deals; while there was also significant activity across the TMT and Industrials and Chemicals sectors
