Q3 M&A activities in MENA remains tepid

October 2015

The MENA M&A market maintained slow activity in Q3 this year, with the overall 12-month activity falling short of any signs of rebound, according to the latest report on regional M&A activity for the third quarter 2015 by Bureau van Dijk and MENA Research Partners.

The total number of completed deals slightly improved in the past two quarters compared to Q1 low levels. The announced value of M&As reached less than $3 billion during Q3, well below the average levels of the past 6 years.

Regional political turmoil and the economic spillover effects of the slump in oil prices are amongst the major factors weighing on investor confidence in the MENA region, it said.

In the long-term however, the region still depicts largely attractive economic fundamentals to sufficiently propel more transactions going forward.
