SPAIN

According to Transactional Track Record's Monthly M&A Report, Spain's mergers and acquisitions market closed February with an increase in the moved capital of its transactions, compared with February 2017. Based on the analysis, there are fewer Big Tickets, but a total combined value of EUR 8.13bn, which proves the upward trend in the month. The report also provides a complete analysis correlating the market's most active sectors, as well as the most prominent transactions of the cross-border segment, proving US-based companies are still the ones that most acquire Spain-based companies. In the overview of the Iberian market, the report presents a monthly analysis of the last two years, where it is possible to assay the dynamic of the M&A, Private Equity and Venture Capital segments since 2016.

PORTUGAL

According to Transactional Track Record's Monthly M&A Report, the Portuguese mergers and acquisitions market showed, for the second month in a row, a significant increase in the total moved capital, compared with the same period of 2017. The first two months of the year registered eight transactions with a value of over EUR 15m each. Meanwhile, 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 that type of transactions involving Internet and Technology companies show a 200% increase, compared with the same period of the previous year.
