M&A in Ireland - H2 2023 Overview


The Key Capital Corporate Finance team is pleased to share the M&A in Ireland - H2 2023 Overview report.

M&A activity regressed in 2023 after strong performance in 2021 and 2022. Irish M&A activity in H2 2023 totalled 113 completed transactions, bringing total volume for the year to 241, down 21% year-on-year.

“While volumes were down, the core trends remained largely consistent in terms of buyer type, buyer geography, sector and deal size. Our view is that both in terms of volume and value, 2023 was a year of normalisation due to economic uncertainty and a disconnect between buyer and seller valuation expectations.
