Oghma Partners is pleased to announce that the latest M&A Review for T1 2011 has now been released.

In the latest issue, Mark Lynch, Partner of Oghma Partners, discusses the trend of increased  M&A activity (by value) which was noted throughout 2010 and has continued in the first four months of  2011.The review also comments on the impact of the latest deals seen throughout this period (including Big Bear/Raisio, Premier Foods/Canning and Quorn and Northern Foods/Boporan) as well as reviewing the source of buyers for UK Food and Beverage assets.

The document contains an analysis of the latest deal multiples and predictions for the next few months of 2011, taking into account tough trading times and modest growth forecasts. Despite these pressures, deal value and volume are both expected to be positive, showing a significant improvement on 2007-9.
