The Experian IQ report looks at the activity of legal and financial advisers in Yorkshire and the Humber’s M&A sector, as well as the fortunes of the dealmaking sector during the period.

“We are delighted again to feature so prominently in the Experian League Tables for deal volume.  We pride ourselves on having the resources and expertise to meet the demands of multiple M&A mandates. We are pleased to have supported a variety of businesses across multiple sectors both in the region and nationally. Our pipeline for Q1 in 2022 in beyond is strong and we look forward to working with clients both existing and new to assist them in executing their strategic aims and objectives.” Steven Millward, partner.

The team has had a positive start for M&A business in 2022 with the sale of AlphaPlus to AQA.

Despite a slower volume of deal volumes in the last quarter, Yorkshire and Humber-based companies were involved in 9.2% of all UK deals in 2021 reaching a total of 634 transactions for the whole year, a 15% increase from 2020.  The positivity in deal numbers was reflected in transaction values, which saw an impressive rise of 51% to just over £17.4bn.
