About the report
16 October 2019
Now in its fourth edition, the Clyde & Co Middle East Deal Study is a one of a kind report. By analysing data from the deals Clyde & Co has advised on in the region, it gives an unparalleled insight into attitudes to risk and the current market practice for M&A and JVs. Since inception, 329 transactions have been reviewed, with an aggregate deal value of USD 17.55 billion.
Today’s shifting – and at times contradictory – dynamics are shaping deal-making in the Middle East. Sentiment is cautious but positive and appetite for the right deals at the right price is strong. In such a context, market data and expert insight are a vital tool for anyone executing M&A or JV transactions in the region. Despite relatively tough market conditions, both deal volumes and aggregate values have increased since our previous study in 2017, suggesting there is good reason to be optimistic about the outlook ahead.
Our aim in this report is to use our proprietary deal data and our expert insight to help regional and international businesses and their in-house counsel, as well as advisers and intermediaries, navigate market practice so that they can adequately allocate risk and capitalise on the opportunities that exist.
