Global M&A deal volumes have dipped at the start of Q1 2023, yet UK-bound M&A activity is expected to be one of the year’s highlights as overseas buyers seek out attractively priced British public and private targets. Within this activity, US buyers’ deal term preferences are likely to impact private UK M&A. So transatlantic dealmakers will find it increasingly important to understand both UK and US expectations. In this episode of Connected With Latham, London M&A partner Beatrice Lo speaks to associate Jennifer Cadet about the core expectations of UK sellers and US buyers. They discuss which preferences will emerge as the new norm in coming deals, and the implications that dealmakers should consider.
