KPMG presents the 12th edition of the annual Russian M&A Review.
While 2016 only saw a modest increase in deal activity, the value of Russian M&A, leapt by 46% to USD75.8 billion. Much of this increase was driven by three deals in the oil and gas sector: the sale of a 19.5% stake in Rosneft, the headline deal of the year, the acquisition of significant minority stakes in India’s Essar Oil, and the privatisation of Bashneft. In general, investors started to understand and adjust to the changing outlook for the economy during 2016, and while not expecting a repeat of the previous boom conditions, are becoming more confident that Russia can deliver above average returns over the medium to long-term.
