- While deal activity remains sluggish, transactions will be key in reviving China’s GDP growth which went negative in Q1.
- Europe’s transactions market is likely to remain depressed in Q3 with investors subdued by the crisis and political uncertainties.
- The fall in U.S. deals has been steep, with high profile deals being abandoned and potential buyers holding off until valuations stabilise.
