Bringing you the latest merger and acquisition opportunities.
Welcome to the 117th edition of The Corporate Finance Network’s monthly Network Opportunities newsletter.
Their are company announcements from some major UK-based companies warning of slower trading, particularly in the retail sector.
Electricals retailer Currys cut its profit forecast this week, while rival AO raised £40mn in what its chief executive described as a “sensible piece of financial housekeeping given the short-term macroeconomic uncertainty”.
However the wider market slowdown has not impacted the M&A market yet if at all it will. A report by S&P Global said the UK's private equity market is the most active within Europe.
Economic indicators will be closely monitored in the coming weeks and months for signs the economy weakness has bottomed out or perhaps the market will become more volatile.
As ever, please share our Network Opportunities with your professional contacts, acquisitive clients, and anyone else that can help generate deal flow amongst all our members.
