IRISH mergers and acquisitions (M&A) exploded in 2021 helped by pent-up deals from the previous year’s lockdown and vendor-enticing valuations boosted by cheap debt.

Data from Refinitiv (formerly Thomson Reuters Finance & Risk), prepared for the Irish Independent, shows the value of deals with an Irish involvement increased by close to five times in 2021 from the previous year but was also well up on the pre-lockdowns and pre-pandemic levels of corporate activity in 2019 and 2018.
