M&A market update – March 2024


In this video, Justin Levine, MD of TheNonExec Limited and Nick Davies, Partner in our Corporate team, discuss the current state of the M&A market.

The M&A professionals note that reported deal volumes are lower in the SME space, according to industry data. However, both firms are experiencing a busy time with lots of work coming their way. They mention that there is political uncertainty in the UK due to an upcoming general election, and potential changes in capital gains tax rates could impact M&A activity.

Despite these factors, they both agree that now is a good time to consider selling a business, as there’s still strong buyer appetite and international interest in UK assets. Justin and Nick also discuss the potential impact of higher capital gains taxes and mention alternative exit routes, such as employee ownership trusts.

Overall, they conclude that it’s very much ‘business as usual’ in the M&A market, with no significant turbulence at the moment.
