The last 12 months has been a period marked by continued volatility for the Irish corporate sector, with the backdrop of Brexit, but also one of opportunity for the many companies who completed transformational deals during the year. Davy was delighted to have acted as financial adviser and broker on several of these major transactions in the Irish market in 2019 and we see a very positive outlook for further M&A and renewed investor appetite for further capital markets activity.
