Deal Drivers: EMEA Q3 2021

In partnership with Mergermarket

EMEA M&A deal activity was strong over the first nine months of 2021, with almost all parts of the region enjoying double- or triple-digit year-on-year increases. Improving vaccination rates have allowed economies to reopen and GDP growth predictions remain positive for Q4 and 2022, lifting valuations and providing confidence for buyers and sellers. 

Which sub-regions and sectors showed the most growth and are they poised for even more in the months ahead?

This edition of Deal Drivers looks at M&A in Q3 2021 across 8 sub-regions in EMEA:

  • UK & Ireland 
  • DACH 
  • France 
  • Nordics
  • Italy & Iberia
  • Benelux
  • Turkey, Middle East & Africa
  • CEE & SEE

See which sectors were top of the table by value and volume, which countries were top bidders, what deals made the 'top 10', and where the opportunities may lie going forward.
