By Clemens Philipp Schindler, Schindler Attorneys

As a recent study in M&A Review (January 2016) reports, Austria saw approximately 330 deals in 2015, an increase of 37 per cent from 2014. This makes 2015 one of the top 10 years since 1988, with the period spanning 2000 to 2007 being the strongest, peaking in 2005 with over 500 deals. For both public M&A as well as private M&A activities an increase can be reported for 2015 and early 2016.
