Great to speak to Yahoo Finance to discuss the state of the deals market and how the total value of M&As taking place across the UK has gone up significantly in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the first, as lockdown restrictions have eased.

According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), the total value of inward M&A — foreign companies abroad acquiring UK companies — was £27.7bn ($38bn) in Q2, £19.4bn more than the previous quarter.

The value of domestic M&A — UK companies acquiring other UK companies — was £10.6bn in Q2, an increase of £6.1bn.
