M&A robust in 2016 and continuing to provide opportunities in 2017 in spite of Brexit

Press release | 22 march 2017

Madrid, 22 march 2017

  • In 2016, the number of deals in Europe remained constant, despite lower M&A value; Europe saw more deals than any other region, including North America.
  • European M&A will continue to provide opportunities in 2017 although buyers will be more cautious about risk allocation.
  • The Study looks at risk allocation including general trends, regional differences and deal size impact in more than 3,200 CMS deals.

Our new CMS European M&A Study 2017 has just been released. The study provides an insight into the legal provisions of mergers & acquisitions agreements, makes comparisons across Europe and with the US and identifies market trends.

This year’s edition covers over 3,200 deals and we focus on the 443 CMS deals in 2016 and the 2,045 CMS deals in the period 2010 – 2015 by way of comparison. A team of CMS lawyers analysed private M&A agreements relating to both non-listed public and private companies in Europe for the ten-year period 2007 – 2016 and they analysed the 2016 market reporting on current market standards on risk allocation in M&A deals. We also recognise that there are various factors affecting different sizes of deals and different market norms between Europe and the US and within European regions.
