Private Equity

The Benelux M&A market has been quick to recover from the initial impact of the COVID-19 crisis. A total of 481 deals worth a combined €27.5bn were announced in the region in H1  of this year, almost four times the value logged in the same period in 2020, while deal count increased by 47.1% year-on-year. This follows from the impressive recovery recorded in H2 2020, which saw the region post its highest half-yearly aggregate deal value since 2008.
