M&A market continues to see flurry of deals
A recent survey has confirmed the growing activity around mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in the UK.
A report published last month revealed that almost 60 per cent of executives expected that their company would pursue an acquisition over the course of the next year.
Many expect that the deal will involve a business outside the UK, with European countries among the top target areas for investment.
The response of business bosses suggests that interest in the M&A market is at its highest level since the onset of recession, with an eagerness to complete transactions in spite of often challenging economic conditions.
Experts argue that many executives are keen to get onto the front foot, making “deals and alliances” that will strengthen their company.
