Mergermarket is pleased to present the half-year edition of Deal Drivers EMEA, in association with Merrill Corporation.

Against a backdrop of slowing economic growth globally and geopolitical tensions such as Brexit, the EMEA region saw 3,345 M&A deals valued at €354.3bn in H1 2019. While this represents a drop-off in activity compared to the same period last year (down 17% in volume and 33% in value), appetite for M&A remains in certain areas.

This report provides an in-depth review of M&A activity in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa for the first half of 2019, offering insights into how announced deals will impact M&A for the year ahead.
