Shaw & Co, the specialist corporate finance advisory firm, has launched its second free interim analysis of the Leisure, Tourism & Sport (LT&S) industry.
The report, which features a summary of M&A deals that have been completed since the launch of Shaw & Co’s second annual LT&S report last October, provides SMEs with valuable insight regarding their latest acquisition prospects.
The report’s key findings include:
• M&A within the LT&S industry has seen an uplift following a successful exit from the pandemic. However, challenging economic conditions causing a restriction in disposable consumer incomes presents a substantial challenge.
• The recent weakening of the pound is likely to make UK businesses more affordable to foreign buyers. Therefore, in the next period we would expect to see the ratio of UK to overseas buyers become slightly more equal than it currently is.
• If an exit is desired and your business is performing well, we recommend giving consideration to launching the preparation for a sale process as soon as possible, before current events flow through to the wider economy.
