Number of hostile M&A take-overs in Europe 1985-2018, by country The business world is a cutthroat environment, with mergers and acquisitions (M&A) being no exception. Hostile takeovers are when an acquiring company buys a target firm by going directly to the company's shareholders or by initiating the replacement of those that stand in the deals way.
In Europe, between 1985 and 2018, the United Kingdom (UK) had by far the highest number of hostile merger and acquisition takeovers according to data provided by the Institute for Mergers, Acquisitions and Alliances (IMAA).
