It is interesting to see the Centre for Management Buy-Out Research confirming the anecdotal evidence that we are currently witnessing: for the right companies there remains a very attractive market of both Private Equity investors with funds raised and large corporates with strong balance sheets - both of whom need to deploy capital and create value for their investors.  It seems that whilst the period just before and after the Brexit vote showed a slow down in deal volumes, the market since has shown a strong recovery and most investors / acquirers that we speak with are suggesting that they remain keen to invest in sound businesses with ambitious management teams.
