Following the impact of the pandemic during Q1 2020 on both domestic and cross-border deals and a volatile M&A market, we experienced a tremendous boom in deals both in terms of volume and value during the H2 with Q4 2020 being the highest in almost two decades. A very brief decline in M&A deals following the first wave of COVID-19 lockdowns, and then a tremendous rebound in the Nordics with strong show of investments from both PE, VC funds, family offices and high net worth individuals and thus a solid finish in 2020 and an even greater deal flow during Q1 and Q2 in 2021. But what have been key deal drivers in 2020 and 2021 with deal value increased 40% from €193.1bn in Q1 2020 to €269.8bn in Q1 2021. And deal volume grew by 14% from 1,918 deals in Q1 2020 to 2,196 transactions in Q1 2021. Which sectors experienced the highest deal activity and what trends were in the driver seat and new ones introduced? And will the M&A market continue to flourish in H2 2021?
