Horizons - M&A Trends & Deals

30 August 2019


The number of M&A deals in Q2 2019 in DACH is on an upward plane again after a consistent decline in the previous quarters. Nevertheless, the 54 M&A completed deals still represent the weakest Q2 results since 2015. The total deal value in Q2 surged from USD 3.5bn to USD 6.2bn compared to the last quarter. 

The biggest Austrian transaction was the acquisition of a 5% stake in Signa Prime Selection AG by FFP – the investment company of the Peugeot family – in a deal worth USD 209m.
