UAE Amongst World’s Top 10 M&A and IPO Activity Growth Markets: Baker & McKenzie Report

After a long and stuttering recovery from the global financial crisis, the forecast, in association with Oxford Economics, predicts an uptick in global transactional activity exceeding US$3.4 trillion in 2017, based on global economic activity increasing to an average growth rate of 2.9% per year over the next three years, compared to an annualised 2.5% since 2012.

The report indicates that M&A activity in the UAE will rise from US$2.2 billion in 2014 to US$6.8 billion in 2015. The forecast also shows that deal activity will stabilise from 2016 to 2020, albeit with a peak of around US$5.7 billion in 2018.
