Global mergers & acquisitions webcast series


Authored by RSM US LLP

M&A issues across Europe

February 24, 2022 

Europe continues to be a hot market for mergers and acquisition activity; in fact, M&A activity hit an all-time high in 2021. Multinational companies looking to expand their footprint into Europe should start with a firm understanding of the trends and considerations in this market.

Join RSM professionals from the United States, the Netherlands and Germany as they talk through:

  • What is driving the increase in activity including increased supplies of cash and the need to embrace transformational deals in the context of digital technology
  • The impact of special purpose acquisition companies (SPACS) across Europe
  • The three areas set to dominate deal-making activity in 2022: the technology, media and telecommunication; consumer; and industrial and chemical sectors
  • How tax reforms and policy agendas around substance, transparency and sustainability will affect M&A in European markets
