COBALT and Mergermarket released the annual M&A review "Baltic M&A Monitor 2015"

The law offices COBALT are pleased to present "Baltic M&A Monitor 2015", a comprehensive review of M&A activity in the Baltic region published in association with Mergermarket, an independent mergers & acquisitions (M&A) proprietary intelligence service. This report provides a detailed look at M&A activity in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in 2014, including sector-specific and country-specific trends, and forecasts for the 12 months ahead.

Major highlights:

  • Optimism in the Baltic M&A market prevailed in 2014, with the region taking a cue from the burgeoning global M&A market
  • The combined deal volume of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania climbed 4% year-on-year while maintaining relatively stable deal value amounting to €1.02bn
  • While deal volume continued to be evenly spread throughout the Baltics, Lithuania still attracts the biggest deals in terms of value
  • Tensions between the Ukraine and Russia began to have a significant impact on European export-oriented industries and dampened investor enthusiasm, however, the three Baltic countries showed remarkable resilience and were able to resist much of the impact of geopolitical tensions in the region
