WHOLESALE AND RETAIL TRADE INDUSTRY ANALYSIS

Welcome to our first ever ‘Shaw Report’ into the Wholesale and Retail Trade (W&RT) industry which provides SME business leaders with a powerful benchmarking tool to aid their decision making.

Larger blue-chip corporates have regular access to this type of analysis from investment banking advisers. However, it is our mission to provide SME business leaders with free access to the same market intelligence in a clear, concise and easy-to-use way.

This report will help you benchmark your performance relative to your competitors in the subsector in which you operate. It will also provide you with valuable insight regarding your relative creditworthiness and attractiveness from a M&A point of view.

KEY FINDINGS

  • 4% of the 1,935 companies analysed account for 91% of industry turnover.
  • In this industry it appears easier to borrow higher multiples of short- and long-term debt once Ebitda hits £5m.
  • 81 M&A deals were completed over a 12-month period.
  • 63% of the 81 M&A deals over the last 12 months were completed by UK buyers.
