Industry overview

Over the past five years, the UK M&A market has demonstrated continued growth and considerable resilience, with over 38,000 transactions involving UK targets worth almost £1.5 trillion taking place. Last year alone, the value of business disposals exceeded £350bn. Between 2018 and 2022, there was an average of over 8,000 transactions per year involving UK targets, worth over £300bn per annum. Despite disruptions across the country during COVID-19, the M&A industry showcased its robust nature, with a lull in activity during the pandemic bouncing back through an increase of almost 18% in transaction volumes in 2021. The demand for business acquisitions is not expected to slow down over the coming years, as trade buyers and investors across the UK look to diversify and consolidate. Multiple factors have been identified which are encouraging M&A activity, including consolidation; ESG and sustainability targets; the integration of disruptive technologies; increasing private equity cash reserves; and growing supply chains.

September 2021
We provided a company in the professional services sector with an upper valuation for their business of £7.14million. The company had established relationships with top-tier contractors and consultants and acquired an enviable reputation for achieving success. In deciding to proceed with a sale, the company teamed up with our M&A partner who focused upon finding a buyer that could enable the business to continue delivering on its growth plan. The benefit of this tailored, unique approach was that dozens of interested parties were identified and, after a competitive bidding process, the final offer accepted was for £8.5million – almost 20% above the original upper valuation.
