Africa’s M&A volume inches up in 2015, but value shrinks

At 290 deals for 2015, African M&A volume was up 1% in 2014, the highest since 2007 while a combination of currency woes and fewer big ticket deals pushed overall deal value down by 26% to $23.3 billion for 2015. These are the top line findings from Mergermarket’s latest Deal Drivers Africa Report which was published last week.  There were only 5 deals worth more than $500 million in 2015, compared with 14 for the prior year. The mid-market was responsible for volume growth with 88% of transactions on the continent being values at $250 million or less.
