KBS Corporate has been named as the UK’s most active dealmaker in the Thomson Reuters Small-Cap Financial Advisory Review for the first half of 2017.
With 32 deals completed with values up to US$50m, the Thomson Reuters report names KBS Corporate as more active than globally operating firms such as Grant Thornton, KPMG, PwC and Deloitte.
KBS Corporate retains the top spot for the second year running, ranking in joint first place with Rothschild & Co.
The Thomson Reuters report also names KBS Corporate as 11th for deal volume in Europe during the first half of 2017, placing us higher than many of our mid-market competitors.
This success follows an exciting period of change for KBS Corporate, in which our holding company, K3 Capital Group plc, was admitted to the London Stock Exchange, beginning to trade on the AIM market.
With many more high-profile deals in the pipeline, we expect the remainder of 2017 to be equally successful, and aim to continue delivering maximum value for our clients across the UK.
Commenting on the report, KBS Corporate’s Managing Director, John Rigby, said: “On behalf of the whole team at KBS Corporate, we are ecstatic to be named as the UK’s most active dealmaker for the second consecutive year.
“The result is testament to KBS Corporate’s phenomenal growth strategy which has been successfully implemented over the last 18 months, aligning with our vision to remain a leading advisor in our industry.
“We fully expect deal values to continue in a positive and healthy manner over the course of the year.”
