The market for M&A seems to reach an all-time-high in both Germany and Sweden. In an interview with Swedish TV “DITV” Anders Elgemyr, Managing Partner at Carlsquare Stockholm, talks about the current M&A market.
As the analysis shows, there was a slight drop in M&A transactions in Germany during 2020, due to Covid 19.
“We could see that many clients took a break during spring. But in our main industries, we did not see a real slow down at all. The appetite for growth in tech companies maintained according to our internal numbers. The only thing that changed was that the deals were done on-line without any personal meetings. That was a huge change,” says Anders Elgemyr.
Last year Carlsquare completed 36 transactions in total, giving the company the number one position in the market for small- and midcap companies.
In Sweden there was no slow down at all due to Covid 19.
“Both in Sweden and in Germany we are expecting an all-time-high for M&A in 2021. The market is super-hot. A lot of capital and an appetite for growth are driving forces in the market,” says Anders Elgemyr.
