Deal trends in public M&A during 2016

Breakfast seminar

January 31, 2017

Please join us for this breakfast briefing where we will be discussing takeover activity in the UK during 2016 and the outlook for 2017. Areas covered will include:

  • key themes, trends and high profile transactions during the past year;
  • the rise of competitive and hostile offers;
  • the impact of recent regulatory developments including the Market Abuse Regulation and changes to the Takeover Code; and
  • the potential impact of Brexit.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session with our speakers, Paul Whitelock, Fiona Millington and Christopher McCarthy.

Following on from a busy 2015, our London corporate team has also been very active in 2016 and has been involved in a number of high profile deals during the year, including the offers for William Hill, Home Retail Group, Darty, Avesco, SVG Capital, Premier Farnell and Lavendon. Interest from our international clients in UK listed assets remains high and we regularly advise bidders, target companies and financial advisers on many potential offers.

If you have any queries about this event, please contact Laura Veerbeek and Roshni Suchak.
