Deal Drivers: EMEA Q1 2022

In partnership with Mergermarket

It's no surprise that EMEA deal numbers fell in Q1 2022. Inflationary pressures, rising interest rates, and the war in Ukraine dampened risk sentiment and reduced M&A appetite across the region: M&A value fell by 27% yoy to €223bn compared to Q1 2021, while volume fell 31% to 2,007 transactions.

Nevertheless, all was not doom and gloom. A few regions posted year-on-year increases and several sectors got big boosts from big deals. And despite current events, optimism remains that dealmakers can tune out the noise and press ahead with deals in the coming months.

This edition of Deal Drivers looks a close look at M&A in Q1 2022 across 9 sub-regions in EMEA:

  • UK & Ireland 
  • DACH 
  • France
