Dubai, United Arab Emirates - Wednesday, January 20th 2016 [ME NewsWire]

 2015 has proven to be rather disappointing in terms of M&A activity targeting companies based in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Deal values have declined against an increase in volume year-on-year, according to Zephyr, the M&A database published by Bureau van Dijk. In total some USD 30,595 million was invested in 2015, representing an 11 per cent drop on the USD 34,529 million injected in 2014 and the second consecutive annual decline. Despite the decline in value during 2015, volume increased by 26 per cent from 521 deals in 2014 to 657. This represents the second highest yearly volume of the last six years, proving that there is an appetite for deals in the region.
