UK Public M&A Trend Report update—1 July–30 September 2018

25/10/2018

Lexis®PSL Corporate and Market Tracker has conducted research to examine the current trends in UK public M&A for the period 1 July 2018 to 30 September 2018.

 Background and approach

Lexis®PSL Corporate and Market Tracker conducted research to examine the current trends in respect of UK public M&A. Data for this report has been sourced from the Market Tracker transaction data analysis tool which allows users to access, analyse and compare the specific features of numerous corporate transactions. This is an update to our Market Tracker Trend Report—Trends in UK Public M&A deals in 2017 in which we examined firm and possible offers announced in 2017.

 

For the purposes of this we analysed the period between 1 July 2018 to 30 September 2018 (Q3 2018). While comparisons have been made to the corresponding period in 2017 (1 July 2017-30 September 2017) (Q3 2017), definitive conclusions can only be made on the completion of the full year trend report of 2018.

We reviewed a total of 25 transactions that were subject to the Takeover Code (Code): 14 firm offers (eight for Main Market companies, six for AIM companies)
