Surge in M & A Deals and Business Sales in South West

Tuesday 1st March 2022

In line with record levels of M & A deals across the South West during 2021 – up by 33% on the previous year and with values also rocketing from £10.4bn to £31.4bn (according to Experian’s Market 2022 Q1 review) – the number of business transfers towards the lower end of the SME sector also rose in terms of both volume and value. This demonstrates that investor confidence has clearly returned – something which is most definitely continuing to be the case in the current financial year.
