SPAIN

The last quarterly M&A Transactional Track Record report of 2018 shows that both the number of transactions and the moved capital registered in the year are higher than those of 2017. The report also provides updated data on different aspects and behavior of the Spanish M&A market, such as the consolidation of the US as the foreign country making the most investments in Spain and of Portugal as the preferred destination for cross-border investment by Spain-based companies. Additionally, it includes sectoral information and figures of the Private Equity and Venture Capital segments, as well as rankings of the activity of the legal and financial advisors.


PORTUGAL

According to Transactional Track Record's 4Q18 M&A Report, the volume of mergers and acquisitions of the Portuguese market totaled EUR 22.6bn in 2018, up 70.1% compared with the same period of 2017. On the pages allocated to the cross-border sphere, the analyses correlating the foreign countries that invest in Portugal and the sub-sectors targeted by these investments reflect that US-based companies retain their increasing interest in Portugal-based companies, marking a 21% increase over the previous year. Meanwhile, in the Venture Capital sector, 2018 closed with the best results of the last four years. The league tables in the last pages of the report reflect the activity of the legal and financial advisors, based on transactions announced in 2018 YTD.
