Bureau van Dijk and MENA Research Partners report on regional M&A activity for the 2nd Quarter 2015

Dubai, United Arab Emirates - Sunday, July 12th 2015 [ME NewsWire]

The MENA M&A market markedly regressed during 2Q2015, well behind its prolonged 3-year revived activity.

Thinking long-term, the region depicts a long-term compelling economic growth story, sufficient to propel more transactions going forward.

With the total number of completed deals on a general declining trend since 2009, the announced value of M&As reached only $3 billion during 2Q15, below its median level of the last 6 years. This has depressed the average deal sizes although the trend of larger transactions still holds. The below graphs 1 & 2 show the rising ... Read more »
