UK is top for inbound acquisitions

Posted on

The UK was the number one major European economic target for inbound deals from the emerging markets during the second half of 2015, according to KPMG’s Cross-Border Deals Tracker.

Andrew Nicholson, head of M&A for KPMG in the UK, said: “Both the US and UK have been seen by many as being at the forefront of the economic recovery, so it is not surprising that both saw an influx of interest from emerging market suitors acquiring target companies.”

However, overseas investors are factoring in Brexit risk, so with the vote only ten weeks away they are not minded to progress transactions until the outcome is known.
