5th European M&A Study sees balance of power firmly with the sellers in M&A.
In a review of 1,700 deals done between 2007-2012, CMS’ fifth annual M&A Study shows that, despite difficult economic times, sellers have been able to improve their risk allocation in the transactions analysed for the report.
The Study looks at deal points that are usually heavily negotiated in M&A deals, including MAC (material adverse change) clauses, purchase price adjustments and warranties. The data is broken down by regions in Europe and provides quantitative and qualitative analysis of the trends in the UK, German-speaking countries, France, Benelux, Southern Europe and Central Eastern Europe. Where there are significant differences with M&A deal terms in the US, comparisons between Europe and the US are included.
