M&A Deal Review Q1-Q3 2019 MENA Region

M&A Deal Review Q1-Q3 2019 MENA Region

The inaugural edition of our M&A Deal Review in October 2019 was received well, showcasing the highlights of the M&A deals in the GCC region during the first three quarters of the year.

Merger & Acquisition (M&A) activity in the MENA region reached US$ 87.2 billion during the first 3 quarters of 2019 (Q1-Q3 2019) – a record high by deal value. This was more than 5 times the deal value of US$ 15 Bn during the same period last year. This significant increase in deal value was primarily driven by the ongoing acquisition of a 70% equity stake in Saudi Basic Industries Corp (SABIC) by Aramco (Deal Size – US $69.1 Bn).
