Mergermarket is pleased to present Inward bound: Inbound M&A into the EU, in association with Orrick. The report, which surveyed 250 senior-level executives based outside the EU, looks at the drivers and challenges for buyers targeting EU companies, as well as the outlook for dealmaking in the coming year.

Highlights of the report include:

  • 95% of survey respondents say that their most recent acquisition within the EU has made them more likely to invest again in the EU as a whole
  • 95% believe there will be growth in the EU over the next two years
  • 51% of respondents plan to make two or more acquisitions in the region over the next three years
  • 86% plan to buy at least one EU target in the coming three-year period
