SPAIN

According to Transactional Track Record's Monthly M&A Report, the moved capital in the first seven months of the year is higher than registered in the same period of 2017, though the number of transactions is still slightly lower in 2018. The report also provides updated data on the Private Equity and Venture Capital segments, on the interaction of Spain-based companies with foreign players, and on the sectorial structure of the investments, among other details. As always, it also includes rankings of the activity of legal and financial advisors and the TTR interview: in this occasion, to Portobello Capital Founding Partner Juan Luis Ramírez, who analyzes some key aspects of Spain's private equity market.

PORTUGAL

According to Transactional Track Record's monthly M&A Report, the Portuguese mergers and acquisitions market in July suffered a reversal in the upward tendency seen in the previous months. 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 the number of those transactions involving technology and Internet companies represents almost 100%, compared with the same period of 2017. Additionally, Spain-based companies are still the ones making the most acquisitions of Portugal-based companies. 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.
