2024 M&A market poised for a strong year

In the latest edition of UK Private Company Director, the quarterly newsletter for directors of owner-managed, family and private equity-backed businesses, Jim Keeling explains why there are positive signs for stronger activity in buying and selling UK companies in 2024.

The latest survey suggests the market’s mood has perked up noticeably - backing up our experience on the ground. We’re witnessing resilient interest in businesses up to around £200m enterprise value from buyers who are less dependent on debt financing and more adaptable to the challenges of high interest rates and ongoing economic uncertainty than their larger company counterparts.

Understanding the current market dynamics is vital if you’re contemplating selling your business. We’ve designed our PRO Review to provide the insights you need to assess your business’s readiness for sale.

If you’d like to discuss your options for a partial or full sale, please get in touch. Emma would be delighted to talk to you and help guide you through the process.
