CMS Publishes 4th Annual European M&A Study


The CMS European M&A Study 2012 is a detailed analysis of over 1,350 European M&A deals that CMS has worked on between 2007 and 2011. A continuation of previous years’ CMS European M&A Studies, the 2012 edition looks at deal points that are usually heavily negotiated in M&A deals. From the geographical perspective, the Study analyses the various 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.

Thomas Meyding, Head of CMS Corporate, says, “Clients continue to tell us how useful the Study is to them and we are pleased to once more present an update of the most comprehensive deal points study available in Europe. The specifics of the Study will continue to be extremely useful for both buyers and sellers involved in M&A transactions.”
