Increase in value of UK M&A but drop in volume

The value of UK mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in the third quarter increased to $78.3 billion (£63 billion), up from $25.7 billion in the prior quarter, despite Brexit uncertainty. According to recent research, the increase in value was driven largely by international deals. The volume of activity did however drop slightly to 705 deals from 719 in the previous quarter.

At Beavis Morgan, we have acted on significant number of M&A deals for SME and owner-managed businesses. We too are entrepreneurs and have done deals as principals and as advisers to clients. Our strong corporate finance and advisory offering, as well as our understanding of priorities for all stakeholders in the often challenging sale process, positions us well to assist in both the buying and selling of businesses.
