CMS publishes 5th European M&A Study
5th European M&A Study sees balance of power firmly with the sellers in M&A
CMS today publishes the fifth edition of its annual European M&A Study, which shows that, despite difficult economic times, sellers have been able to limit their liability significantly in the transactions analysed for the report.
The M&A study is fascinating reading for businesses looking to do deals across borders and understand the norms in other countries. For the Study, CMS reviewed 1,700 deals done between 2007 and 2012, of which 342 in 2012.
