SPAIN

According to Transactional Track Record's monthly M&A Report, the moved capital during the first eleven months of the year is higher to the one 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 sectoral structure of investments, among other topics. Additionally, it includes information on the most important transactions of the month, as well as rankings of the activity of the legal and financial advisors.

PORTUGAL

According to Transactional Track Record's monthly M&A Report, the Portuguese mergers and acquisitions market presented a marked downturn in November, which had a negative impact on the accumulated figures of 2018. 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. However, Spain-based companies remain at the top of the list as those making the most investments in Portugal. 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.
