Together with Mergermarket, we have analysed the main drivers and challenges for corporate transactions in 2016 and beyond in each of the countries that make up the region. In order to put our statistical analysis into a broader and more meaningful context, we have also surveyed dealmakers from many different industries as well as private equity firms who have been involved in regional transactions in the past year.
