TTR Iberian Market - May 2021 Report

In partnership with TTR

Dealmaking in Portugal has experienced a rocky start to the year: compared to 2020, M&A deals there have experienced a 10% decline in volume (141 total deals at May)  and a 53% decline in value (totalling €3.17bn at May). As expected, Spain played a role in acquisitions, leading with 16 inbound investments and seven outbound deals. And sectors like technology, finance, and retail are seeing some growth.

In Spain, the situation is more positive. Total deal volume was up 13.4% at May (954 deals) and value for the year was up 17.6% (€48.3bn), compared to 2020. Inbound and outbound investments were led by the US, with UK and Portugal not far behind. And real estate, technology, and finance all saw gains.
