A recent report produced by Corbett Keeling in conjunction with Hogan Lovells and Kleinwort Benson, and based on statistics provided by Unquote and Incisive Financial Publishing, concluded:

“Deal making activity, especially in the smaller buyouts sector, has increased. There has been an increase in the overall value of deals but also a clear resurgence of optimism about the coming 12 months. M&A activity will rise over the next 12 months, with the largest gains coming in media, technology and financials.”

At WestBridge, we believe that as the economy and confidence continue to improve, increasing numbers of SMEs will be keen to accelerate their growth by securing development capital. While owners will seek to secure an exit by passing on the business to the next tier of management through a buyout.

We have money to invest and are keen to hear about established, profitable and ambitious businesses that would benefit from our trademark mix of financial and management support.
