Internet DealBook Annual Report 2011
Europe and Asia-Pacific post highest average deal values; Software & Services leads the way
While most Internet financial reports have dealt with specific world regions or sectors, Internet DealBook takes a global perspective for an increasingly global world. Its Annual Global M&A and Investment Activity Review has been compiled from a detailed analysis of over 2,400 deals worth over USD104bn during 2011, identifying businesses that have been acquired or received funding, by geography and sector.
Europe tops all regions with an average deal value of USD114m. Asia-Pacific comes second at USD60.4m, beating North America at USD59.2m. Even after taking out Microsoft’s USD8.5b acquisition of Skype, Europe still tops the charts with an average deal value of USD74.1m.
