Deal insights for Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland
While 2017 was a busy year for M&A activity across the island with deal volume in the Republic of Ireland increasing by around 16% year on year, NI statistics actually suggest a modest decline of 6% in deal volume last year. This somewhat mirrors our survey, with NI respondents having a more cautious outlook in deal volume in 2018 – 27% of NI respondents forecast an increase in deal volume compared to 57% of RoI respondents.
