Shaw & Co, the specialist corporate finance advisory firm, has launched an interim analysis of the Energy and Natural Resources (E&NR) industry.

The report, which features a summary of M&A deals that have been completed since the launch of Shaw & Co’s annual E&NR report last November, provides SMEs with valuable insight regarding their latest acquisition prospects.

The report’s key findings include:

Buoyant M&A Activity:

More deals (30) executed in the six-month period from Nov 2021 to May 2022 than in the 12 month period to Nov 2021 (13). Activity increased most in the Waste Management and Oil & Gas sub-sectors. All sub-sectors experienced increased activity except for Water Supply/Sewage.

International Interest:

Over two-thirds of buyers are based in the UK or have a significant presence in the country. However there are still foreign acquirors looking to invest in UK companies.

South East Dominates:

The South East proved popular for deal activity, especially in Energy/Utilities/Natural Resources, Waste Management and Oil & Gas. The remaining deals were evenly spread across the rest of the UK.

Waste Management Soaring:

The Waste Management sub-sector contributed a third of the total deals with ten, up from four in the previous 12 months. The UK Waste Management sector is valued at £22.4bn and is expected to reach £24.7bn by 2028.
