- Announced European transactions in Q2'10 remained at the level of Q1'10 (72 disclosed transactions within EU countries);
- The F&B industry outperformed broader market indices during Q2'10 because of decreased risk appetite in the market. While the DJ EuroStoxx 50 lost 11.8% during Q2'10, the F&B index DJ Eur 600 Food & Beverage advanced by 0.6% over the same period.
