In the prevailing economic environment, organic growth is hard to achieve in a timely manner, making acquisitions an attractive strategy for businesses looking to expand quickly.

Moving into a new product or geographic area through acquisition can make economic sense when compared with the costs of innovation, or of building a distribution network. A buy-and-build strategy can significantly accelerate the growth of a business, including for those that have already invested for organic expansion.

In the current market both high-quality cash generative trade acquirers and private equity firms with significant funds to invest are looking to deploy capital across a range of acquisition opportunities.
