The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region saw 130 inbound and outbound merger and acquisition (M&A) deals, valued at USD 60 billion, in the first half of 2020.
The technology sector inked 27 deals worth USD 2.5 billion, while the pharma, medical and biotech sector reeled in 14 deals worth USD 579 million.
M&A activities in MENA are expected to increase as companies, including small and medium enterprises and large corporations, look for equity via capital injections for working capital needs.
How can M&A continue to take advantage of the pandemic-influenced economic slowdown?
