Deal values rise despite economic uncertainty

18 Oct 2019

After a storming end to our last financial year in June, economic uncertainty slowed the progression of deals over the summer.  From September, however, activity has picked up significantly particularly in the £20-£50m space; Durbin (pharma) and Chandlers (building materials) feature below. 
 
We are also running a good mix of trade sales and MBOs in Surrey and Sussex with UK and overseas trade buyers and PE investment.  Active sectors include wine / vineyards,  aviation / travel, insurance / financial services and builders' merchants / related. 

The other recent regional trend has been consolidation in B2B / professional services in the mid-market and, despite challenge for the retail sector generally, high end consumer deals such as pet products and food.
