Oghma Partners is pleased to announce the release of the T1 2014 Mergers and Acquisitions Review which is available upon request. The first months of the year have proven to be quiet in terms of deal activity with volume and value significantly lower compared to the same period last year; this is in contrast to overall global trend of rising M&A activity.
In terms of valuation, preliminary data suggests a rising trend backed up by the improvement in the valuation of quoted food and beverage companies. However, to maximise value businesses needs to have a reasonably broad customer base combined with a good growth track record and appealing growth plans.
