Flourishing enterprise values worldwide – Globalscope transaction report sheds light on the trends

17 Dec 2014

2014 has been an active M[&]A-year that kept us as M[&]A-advisors busy: We successfully closed 16 transactions and are still working on 3 transactions that we hope to close before Christmas. Almost 50% of our transactions were international. This is a high percentage considering that in general, in 2014 every fourth transaction registered worldwide was cross-border.

Our internationality is no coincidence: For years we have been working closely together with our international M[&]A-network Globalscope. Michael Moritz, managing partner at Carlsquare, is currently president of Globalscope. Under his presidency the network expanded its international presence significantly with 2 new partners in Africa, 3 new partners in Europe and last but not least 9 new partners in Asia through the merger with Asia M[&]A. We are now represented by 44 partners worldwide, with more than 400 professionals in 38 countries.[nbsp]

Globalscope meets twice a year to exchange views and to discuss M[&]A-trends in sectoral groups that are also in touch regularly. We present this know how in our current newsletter. 19.907 transactions were analyzed. For transactions up to 150m USD the EBITDA multiple for the enterprise value increased from 8.5 to 9.2. Our Globalscope focus sectors industrials, services, health, consumer, software/ internet/ technology, transport, and financials have been dedicated individual chapters.
