A report by GP Bullhound
Asian acquisitions of European technology companies more than doubled from 2014 to 2016 from 22 deals to 49 and the deal value increased 30 times to $50.4 billion.
The main drivers for this growth are Softbank’s major strategic bets and the rise in both the volume and the size of acquisitions by Chinese buyers, running in parallel to China’s digital economy strategies.
This fast-developing landscape presents new opportunities and challenges for the growing European tech ecosystem.
