DAX and MDAX companies still tend to turn ‘West’ when looking for significant inorganic growth opportunities. In the last decade, deals in the US made up 53 percent of total M&A investments of these companies by value and 18 percent by volume. This suggests that US assets are particularly prized by German companies, which may find it hard to identify attractive M&A opportunities closer to home and to succeed in the US market through organic growth alone.
