A number of these clients, including Westleigh and Corpfin Capital, have returned to us following previous transactions demonstrating the strong relationships we build with clients and the value in repeat business.
We continue to see high levels of interest from private equity with over 65% of transactions involving private equity and having transacted with 19 different firms. 43% of our transactions over the last quarter also involved debt advisory.
In the recently announced M&A ranking tables we have climbed a number of places across Europe. We are now 12th in Europe in MergerMarket’s latest ranking tables and 6th in the UK. We also jumped to 2nd place in the European Private Equity Advisory table.
