European M&A cross-border activity increase expectations H1 2017-H1 2019

This statistic depicts the distribution of industry experts opinions regarding the future increase of M&A cross-border activity in Europe in the first half of 2017, 2018 and 2019. During 2017 and 2018's survey, the overwhelming majority of respondents believed cross-border activity by non-European buyers would increase in the year to follow. Although more than half of 2019's senior executives believed cross-border activity would continue to increase, confidence appears to be wavering.

Do you expect cross-border M&A into Europe (non European buyers) to increase over the next 12 months?
