Mergers and Acquisitions Report: Austria 2009
IMAA, January 2010, Pages: 29
This report analyzes the announced Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) in Austria, i.e. involvement of Austrian companies. It shows the Austrian M&A activity in number and value of transactions per year since 1995, per semi-year since the first half 2000, per quarter since the 1st quarter 2006. It compares the Austrian activity with the worldwide/European trend on an annual basis. It describes the national and cross-border M&A activity in Austria, most favourite regions and top countries for Austrian acquirers, and most favourite regions/top countries of foreign acquirers in Austria (by number and value).
The report shows Austrian M&A activity by industry (by number & value) in 2009 and changes to 2009. It lists the top 10 Austrian M&A deals. The report shows the worldwide and European M&A activity in number and value of transactions per year since 1995, per semi-year since the first half 2000, per quarter since the 1st quarter 2006.
Mergers & Acquisitions activity in Austria has decreased in 2009 in terms of numbers (-23%) and value (-50%). This is the second year of decrease in a row. This decrease in Austrian deal activity is much than the overall trend worldwide and in Europe. Hence, deal making in Austria has been impacted in 2009 – again like in 2008 – more than elsewhere. The share of cross border deals in the total value has reached a new record of 98%; as high as probably seen never before. A combination of extremely low value of national transactions combined with high value of acquisition by foreign companies in Austria has contributed to that. Almost all Austrian deals abroad take place in Europe. For the first time since 2003, the value of Austrian acquisitions in Western Europe has been higher than in Eastern Europe. This value is at the second highest level since 1995. Austrian companies rather seem to have finally revised their Eastern Europe strategy to some extent.
The majority of acquisitions abroad by Austrian companies took place in Germany, while most foreign acquirers in Austria are from Germany. The majority of deals in terms of numbers and value have taken place in the industrial sector. Especially transaction values in consumer and financial industry have decreased dramatically. While in 2008 national deals have dominated the list of top deals, in 2009 all of the top 10 deals are cross-border transactions.
