According to Onetoone corporate finance communications, 45% of the 2,734 corporate transactions that took place in 2011 involved industrial investors.

Although there is no official register, in 2011 in Spain ONEtoONE computed 2,734 corporate transactions, 12.7 per cent more than in the previous year..

What is most striking is that 20 per cent of these transactions have involved medium-sized companies (turnover between 10 and 50 million) and 77 per cent have involved a small company (turnover between 2 and 10 million).

Industrial groups led the way in the ranking and accounted for 45 per cent of deals, followed by venture capital (35 per cent), financial groups (7 per cent), private investors (7 per cent), management (4 per cent) and the public sector (2 per cent).

The distribution by actors, with variation in percentages, has not changed in recent years, but 2011 has been a backtracking in the prominence of the industrial clusters who in the previous year participated in the 61 per cent of operations. The explanation is to be found in the uncertainty created by the blurred vision of a recovery horizon and the lack of financing.

With regard to the typology of operationsIn 2011, 75 per cent were sale and purchase transactions, 21 per cent capital increases, 2 per cent capital increases and 1 per cent capital increases. confusion and 1 per cent transactions with managers (MBI / MBO). The credit crunch is reflected in the growing weight of capital increases, which in 2007 accounted for 6 per cent of total transactions, 13 per cent in 2008 and 2009, and 18 per cent in 2010.
