The recruitment industry has experienced a recent increase in M&A activity, in particular over the last twelve months. The industry has seen some of the highest deal numbers in recent months, SMEs and large corporations alike.


Latest developments

An increased desire from both buyers and sellers to complete deals, along with a better economy, were factors in this growth. Ultimately a transaction is entered into by two parties: the buyer is able to finance a deal and the seller intends to pass their company on. The improved economy now means that buyers are better financed and as a result have more confidence in making acquisitions, and they are able to commit to the true value of a target company.

This increased confidence has a domino effect with more buyers prepared to pay a reasonable price for acquisitions; the owners looking to sell are more willing to do so as they feel the sale is worthwhile.
