UK deal volume soars
July saw the UK’s total deal volume soar by almost 20 per cent, according to Experian Corpfin, recording the highest regional growth across the world.
In its monthly M&A review of UK, North American, European and Asia Pacific activity, Experian Corpfin noted all four of those regions experienced month on month growth; however, the UK recorded the largest rise.
The report went on to reveal significantly high levels of activity in the lower mid-market, with deals between £500,000 and £10m in total transaction value, which increased by 26 per cent. Similarly, mid-market deals between £10m and £100m increased in number by 24 per cent.
This significant rise in deal volume was witnessed first-hand at Benchmark International, with 10 deals concluding in August alone – an outstanding achievement as a result of dogged hard work and persistence on behalf of the Deal Teams involved, as well as positive conditions in the wider market.
The hospitable deal-making environment looks set to continue and Benchmark International is on-hand to assist business owners looking to capitalise on these positive market conditions.
