In recent years we have witnessed a significant rise in the number of merger and acquisition transactions. In 2017 alone, about 130 M&A transactions took place, whereby the average M&A transaction value in the last three years was over US$150 million. The competitive business environment and the expansion of globalization, resulted in companies seeking entry points into new markets and ways to increase their existing market share, and this leads to growing encouragement for the M&A market in Israel. We, at Entropy Finance and Investments, offer our clients comprehensive support in their M&A process, including a valuation, investment banking, support in their financing efforts for transactions and so forth.
