BBC News reported this summer as having a record number of mergers and acquisitions and with so many companies feeling the heat after the economic downfall, it seems that this is the best way to ride out the storm.
This doesn’t just open doors for those that were hit hard recently. As the recession forced company spending to slow and brought on a newfound reluctance to agree any new deals, some UK businesses have now found themselves with an agreeable budget for opening new doors.
After experiencing such negativity in the business world in recent months it must be a warming feeling to know that there may be a bright side for all those months spent counting company pennies.
David Pattison, senior analyst at Plimsoll said, "Anyone on the acquisition trail needs to look first at the companies that have a decent gross margin but whose overall financial strength is compromised or has declined in recent years. These types of companies usually have solid fundamentals but their current owners have lost control of costs. They are often undervalued and with a little restructuring have big potential for their new owners.
