UK public companies have been a core client constituency for us for over three decades. We believe that now, more than ever, driven in no small measure by the higher costs of MIFID II and the strategic re-focusing of our industry, many of them are poorly served, if served at all, by their existing advisers.

Our H1 2019 review provides insights on the current issues faced by UK PLCs due to structural changes in the advisory market and an overview of Media sector stock market performance, recent M&A and fund raising activity in the UK and continental European Media sectors.

Trillium Partners’ recent M&A experience in the Events, Information Services and Healthcare Communications sectors includes advising Upper Street Events on its sale to Immediate Media, Immediate Media on the disposal of Cyclingnews and Procycling to Future plc, Clarion Events on the disposal of FMB, the German mechanical engineering events, to Easyfairs and Incisive Health on its sale to UDG Healthcare plc.

We hope you enjoy this review and would welcome any feedback you have.
