Our latest Market Review compares the recent market correction with those that followed the Dotcom Bubble and the GFC, examines recent M&A and Capital Markets activity in our focus sectors – B2B Information Services & Events, Consumer Media, Learning & Development and Marketing Services – and looks forward to a brighter deal making future in Q4 and beyond.

We remain upbeat. Following a lull in M&A and private capital raising over the last 6 months as the market recalibrated itself in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are starting to see renewed activity in the independent advisory market with a heightened focus on strategic, rather than operational, priorities.

Our 30-year track record advising on M&A and private capital raising solutions makes us well placed to help you navigate these uncertain times, whether seeking new private equity/debt to develop your business or de-risk the founders, selling assets that no longer fit your strategy or undertaking buy-side M&A to acquire new skills/expertise to take advantage of new opportunities thrown up by the pandemic.

We hope you enjoy this review, which is available for download here, and would welcome any feedback you have.
