Opportunities and Challenges in African M&A

African M&A has continued to be active and has drawn in new market entrants. However, there have also been challenges with deals taking greatly extended periods to close.

  • Opportunities - What’s driving the new entrants into the market (both pull factors attracting investment and push factors from other mature regions)?
  • Challenges - What are the challenges facing deals and why are they taking so long to close? How can this process best be managed?
  • Funding - With turbulent stock markets and transition pressure on investment in the hydrocarbon sector, how are deals being funded?
