Business Buying In 2022

Nick talks all things business buying and acquisitions in 2022 – a state of the industry update – so as to help refine the information out there, and debunk some of the rhetoric available, ensuring that you have the most up to date and accurate data to hand in order to realise your buying and acquisitions aims for the year ahead.


  • Main street are businesses beneath the realm of £2m in revenue. The lower middle market range from the £2m mark all the way up to £50m.
  • The state of the world and its many economies, as well as upheavals and political events, all have a marked effect on business buying.
  • Going through the traditional routes of buying through brokers and agents means that a lot of people will be doing the same thing leading to high levels of competition. This means your ability to negotiate will be hampered.
  • 54% of transactions are closing successfully. This is an extraordinarily high rate of acquisition success, meaning there is economic confidence around scale.


‘Markets change all the time’

‘I still think it is a buyer’s market, but it’s a buyer’s market if you are prepared to look off-market’

‘Over the next decade you are going to get the baby boomers coming through’

‘Go out there and do partnerships, joint ventures and acquisitions’
