Worldwide Mergers and Acquisitions Still Bottoming Out

ZEW-Zephyr M&A-Index

(PresseBox) (Mannheim, )
During the second quarter of 2010, worldwide M&A activities have still not yet recovered from their sharp decline following the outbreak of the financial crisis in 2008. The ZEW-Zephyr M&A Index stands at 118 points in June 2010, standing above its starting point of 100 points in January 2000. However, it is still considerably below its longtime average of 126 points. By the end of the first quarter 2010, the Index had reached even 123 points. "Despite positive economic forecasts, M&A activities have not taken off yet", says Dr. Christoph Grimpe, Senior Researcher at ZEW. "There are no signs for fr dxayhgmya rddijoac tdumwy."
