Welcome to KPMG M&A Radar – our new platform for M&A content.
2019 was a year of change, and despite uncertainties ahead of the Presidential and Parliamentary elections, solid economic growth was sustained. Spurred on by sound monetary policy, successful sovereign and corporate bond issues and further reforms, the new government continued to promoted a business friendly environment and support for prospective investors.
Ukrainian M&A recorded its third consecutive year of double-digit growth in 2019, with 80 transactions worth a combined USD2.35 billion, a 29 per cent over the previous year. Inbound M&A more than doubled to USD1.15 billion on the back of 29 transactions, outstripping domestic deal-making for the first time in recent history, although domestic transactions still accounted for the lion’s share (60 per cent) of activity.
