Who dares wins: CMS European M&A Outlook 2020


We are pleased to provide you with this year’s edition of the “European M&A Outlook”, published in co-operation with Mergermarket.

Our survey provides key insights into how both corporate and private equity firms are adapting their M&A strategies to the current situation in Europe and how they are looking beyond the continent to tap into new geographic, product and customer markets. The report canvassed the opinions of 230 Europe-based executives, from corporates and private equity firms, assessing dealmaking sentiment for the European M&A market in the year ahead.

Our features in this year’s report include articles on the GP-lead secondary, clean energy, life sciences, and the outlook for European investors active in Latin America. There is also a dedicated analysis of the impact of COVID-19 on European dealmaking.
