Shaw & Co launches its latest ‘Shaw Report’ which takes an interim view of M&A activity in the Property & Construction industry.
Shaw & Co, the specialist corporate finance advisory firm, has launched an interim analysis of the Property & Construction industry.
The report, which features a summary of M&A deals that have been completed since the launch of Shaw & Co’s annual Property & Construction report in May, provides SMEs with valuable insight regarding their latest acquisition prospects.
Deal activity has been buoyant in the Property & Construction industry in the last seven months as larger companies look to scale their operations to take advantage of the strategic benefits of an acquisition.
A number of headwinds – rising inflation and the worsening geopolitical situation – mean that the level of M&A activity seen over this period may not continue. Confidence is key to dealmaking, and uncertain economic conditions can cause buyers to ‘pull the plug’.
The report’s key findings include:
• 99 M&A Deals: Deal activity during this period has been in line with other industries we are tracking.
• 85% of Buyers From UK: The majority of buyers are based in the UK or have a significant presence in the country. However the UK still remains popular for foreign investment.
• 39% of Deals in the South East: The South-East proved popular for deal activity as well as the North of England.
• 19% of Deals Completed in August: August was the most popular month for deals to be completed
