M&A activity in Denmark and Europe in Q3 2021 continues the strong momentum seen in recent quarters, and 2021 as a whole is already a record year after three quarters
The number of transactions in Q3 2021 sets a record for previous third quarters, which indicates a strong market as buyers and sellers of companies increasingly look beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
In Denmark, the third quarter of the year shows a high activity level for Danish company sales, however with a slight decrease compared to the previous quarters. The number of transactions in 2021 is already above any previous years.
When looking at the European M&A-market, the level of activity in Q3 2021 also reflects a high activity level. The number of transactions is still at a very strong level, even after a historically strong first half of 2021. The high activity in Denmark and most of Europe reflects a generally strong market, which has to a great extent recovered from the impact of COVID-19, with a strong transaction appetite from both buyers and sellers of companies.
After a record first half of 2021, Q3 was almost as active, reflecting a continued strong transaction appetite from both buyers and sellers of companies. We are experiencing that the activity level is continuing at a very high level. Buyer interest is strong, and we also see private and financial owners continuing to put businesses up for sale.DANIEL SAND – MANAGING PARTNER, OAKLINS DENMARK
