Current Company Valuations
As you will have read, the UK is now showcasing a number of positive indicators that the economy is now on the right path to recovery. The FTSE 100 climbed to 14-year high in February, the housing market continues to grow and in April the ONS* revealed that the economy grew by 0.8% in 1Q of 2014. But what does this mean for the UK’s Mergers and Acquisitions market? And more importantly, what does it mean for the valuations achieved by shareholders?
The chances are the value of your business will have changed dramatically since 2008 and the collapse of Lehman Brothers. As always the value of any business is in ‘the eye of the buyer’ but the availability of cheap debt, growing corporate risk appetite and a strengthening macro environment are improving valuations across the board.
Corporate risk appetite is returning to the UK M&A market as buyers can now confidently justify paying a premium for the right business.
