Mergermarket is pleased to present Global dealmakers: Cross-border M&A outlook 2019, published in association with Baker Tilly International.

Heightened geopolitical risks, rising protectionism and shaky economics mean M&A, particularly international deals, has never been more challenging. Yet dealmakers are defying these trends to capture value and market share outside their home markets through ambitious cross-border buying. However, this is not being done without an air of vigilance as dealmakers become increasingly cautious of which assets and markets they pursue.

This report explores the current challenges shaping the market in addition to the main drivers behind cross-border deal flows and best practices dealmakers can follow to maximize their investments.
