Over the past five years, U.S. companies have purchased almost four times as many startups as European acquirers.
A recent study researched 6,000 acquisitions by both European and U.S. companies since 2012; it found that U.S. acquirers completed 82 percent of the deals, compared to European counterparts. Also, U.S.-based companies accounted for all of the 15 most active acquirers.
