Mergers and Acquisitions in Nigeria

Nigeria at the moment offers a lot of potential returns for investors. Analysts predict that Nigeria will obtain the highest average GDP growth in the world in the next 40 years. It is currently the largest economy in West Africa and the second largest in Africa.

Due to its size and strategic location it is regarded as a major port of entry into other parts of Africa. Internally, the recent successful elections have led to increased interest in investment opportunities. The Nigerian business environment is no stranger to mergers and acquisitions (M&A), especially in the financial sector. In recent years numerous successful deals, some involving Chinese companies, have been concluded.
