Webinar playback: The deals market in an inflationary environment

The strength of the deals market in the first half of 2022 was a continuation of a stellar previous two years for rainmakers in the region, our latest webinar heard.

The Deals Market in an Inflationary Environment, sponsored by Clearwater International, heard how the high quality of Midlands businesses reflected by the busy private equity activity in the region and how continued growth in the market is expected for the remainder of the year as businesses look to fund their growth plans.

The panel included Sarah Taylor, partner at Clearwater International and John Green, investment director at LDC, will be Andy Skinner director, head of Midlands, at Northedge.

Taylor said: “The strong performance of the region is a combination of a number of things; number one there has been a strong appetite from the private equuty and debt funds to acquire strong businesses, as well as trade having strong balance sheets and an ability to access debt. We’ve also seen a relative scarcity of assets, and therefore the assets that have come to market have been strongly fought over – this has been driving the market in terms of value and volume.

“It’s a continuation of the interesting two or three years and the journey we’ve all been on.”
