According to the Cass Business School UK Growth Buyout report, deal activity amongst British SME's in the first half of 2016 has seen a marked increased on the same period in the previous year. Private equity investors completed 40 deals this year in the £10m – £100m mark, as opposed to 35 last year. What’s more, the Brexit vote looks to have had little affect on the numbers, with a further 10 deals have completed since the UK voted to leave the EU on 23 June.
