Deals were closed across 16 different European countries and 9 different sectors in H1. Globally, IMAP closed deals with a disclosed value of USD 2.9 billion.
M&A volumes generally slowed in H1 after a fairly strong 2015. Prolonged uncertainty in the financial markets, stemming in part from the Brexit vote and instability in Europe, may continue to weigh on the flow of M&A transactions on the continent and abroad. However, there will likely still be plenty of opportunities for M&A activity as companies and investors search for low-risk growth through purchases of mid-sized business with proven potential.
Commenting on prospects going forward, IMAP Chairman Jurgis Oniunas, said: “With a strong geographic presence not only in Europe but on a truly global scale and a team of seasoned sector experts, IMAP is poised to continue providing superior M&A advisory services to new and existing clients wherever opportunities arise.”
