DLA Piper: European Acquisition Finance Debt Report 2016

European Acquisition Finance Debt WEB

2015 was yet again an active year in Europe’s acquisition finance debt market, with survey respondents reporting an increase in deal activity of varying degrees. The first finding from our survey is good news – 94% expect the volume of transactions to increase or at least remain stable in 2016, indicating it will yet again be a busy year.

This report, produced by DLA Piper in collaboration with The Lawyer Research Service, presents detailed results of our survey of 300 participants active in the European acquisition finance debt market. It also includes extracts from interviews with a number of senior dealmakers.

Deal activity is expected to be robust, in part due to the abundance of liquidity provided by the huge number of alternative lenders that entered the market last year and those already active that raised new funds during 2015. This capital is captive so will be hunting for deals in the next two to three years.
