Regent reports strong month for M and A

(By Anthony Miller – Thursday 8th October 2009 6:00pm). Some welcome news on the M&A front from advisors, Regent Partners. September saw European transaction numbers up a third month-by-month to 218, with the $11.6b aggregate deal value the highest for over a year. CEO Peter Rowell also reported that valuations are heading back towards long-term norms. Let’s hope these acquisitions make more strategic sense than some of the recent US-based megadeals! Anyway, we’ll be delving into the quarter’s UK SITS M&A activity in the next issue of IndustryViews M&A later in the month.
