ABOUT M&A IN RECRUITMENT

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.
