Mergers and acquisitions 'picking up in Wales'

Mergers and acquisitions rising in Wales?

06 May 2010

New figures show mergers and acquisitions to be on the rise in Wales.

The number of mergers and acquisitions taking place in Wales has been tipped to pick up over the coming months.

According to the latest data released by the business information provider Bureau Van Dijk, the number of deals completed in Wales dropped slightly over the first three months of the year when compared to the preceding quarter.

At the same time, however, the figures also show that mergers and acquisitions picked up again in April, with the firm noting that a "pattern of peaks and troughs is emerging" within the country and is likely to remain in place for the foreseeable future, the Western Mail has reported.

Notably, the data also shows that the biggest single deal to be concluded in Wales so far this year was the £5 million acquisition of the Bridgend waste management company Inetec, with this contributing significantly to the total £41 million value of Welsh mergers and acquisitions recorded for the first quarter of 2010.

At the end of last month, Welsh accountancy firm Broomfield & Alexander merged with Swansea-based Griffith and Miles to form the biggest independent chartered accountants in the country.
