TMT M&A European Leaders' Panel: Session recap

TMT M&A market open for business – say dealmakers

Despite the uncertainty caused by Covid-19, the TMT M&A sector remains open for business, with the Virgin Media and O2 merger just one positive indicator of the market’s health, leading European TMT bankers said at TMT Finance’s inaugural TMT Connect virtual panel.

TMT M&A bankers from LionTree and Citi, lead advisers on the Liberty Global Telefonica deal, and Barclays Capital were the featured speakers on the ‘TMT M&A European Leaders’ Panel’ and discussed the strategy behind that deal, the impact on future deals and the outlook for TMT deals and subsectors for the rest of the year.

As well as offering insights into the logistical challenges of negotiating and financing a £31.4bn deal during a global lockdown, the speakers shared their views on why they see great opportunities for TMT in particular subsectors and regions as well as some challenges ahead.
