UK: Highest level of M&A activity since 2007

According to Oghma Partners research, the first eight months of the year have seen the highest level of deal volume in the sector since 2007. Assuming current trends continue the last four months of 2012 should confirm the year as the most active since 2007 by volume, albeit the value of transactions may still be exceeded by 2011.

The Oghma Partners M&A review, released every four months, investigates this trend in further detail and this most recent review also includes a special focus on the Scotch and Irish Whisk(e)y markets, looking at new entrants and established players, plus assessing latest trends and developments within the industry.
