Business acquisitions continue to thrive into 2014
Back to other articles →
The mergers and acquisitions market saw a significant rise in 2013 and here at KBS Corporate, we are anticipating this activity to increase even further throughout the forthcoming year.
Based on the global deal activity seen in January it has been reported that this is the best start to a year since 2000. At present, the UK and overseas is seeing high volumes of deal activity and we expect significant M&A to continue thriving throughout 2014 and into 2015.
KBS Corporate remains in direct contact with high calibre purchasers from the UK and across the globe, who have retained a great deal of interest in a wide variety of sectors. Strong UK buyers and investment groups with large cash reserves are showing more and more confidence to acquire, contributing largely to a boost in deal activity.
The number of global transactions has increased and more and more international acquirers are continuing to show a strong appetite for quality companies within the UK.
Timing the sale of your company can be vital in achieving the optimum sale price. Due to the high demand and investment appetite, many owners are taking the opportunity to realise excellent sale prices for their businesses.
