Mergers & Acquisitions

Our Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) team specialises in providing financial advice on change-of-control transactions in and around the listed company arena.

Our roles include (i) advising UK-listed clients on a retained basis to support their strategic growth ambitions and in takeover situations (hostile or recommended), (ii) advising overseas corporates on investment opportunities in the UK, and (iii) advising private equity firms on carve-out or take-private transactions.

  • Our broad corporate client base provides deep insight into UK plc boardrooms and their decision-making processes.
  • Our equity distribution platform elicits valuable, company-specific intelligence on shareholder views in the context of M&A transactions.
  • Our focus on public markets means that we are natively fluent in the regulatory language that these transactions are conducted in. The M&A team includes a former secondee to the Takeover Panel, providing first-hand experience of the primary regulator of UK takeover transactions.

The combination of these capabilities in the UK mid-market is unique to Peel Hunt and means that we deliver a full-service M&A solution to our clients, enabling them to make robust strategic and tactical decisions based on high quality information and analysis, and to have complete confidence in successful transaction execution.
