Mergers and Acquisitions Involving UK Companies, Quarter 2 Apr to June 2015

Source: Office for National Statistics (UK)

From Summary:

This release covers Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) transactions that result in a change of ultimate control of the target company and have a value of £1 million or more. Information on the number and value of transactions are reported, in addition to whether transactions are acquisitions or disposals. Figures relating to mergers are included within acquisitions and those relating to demergers are contained within disposals. These statistics are presented on a current price basis, which are prices as they were at the time of measurement and are therefore not adjusted for inflation.

In Q2 2015 there were a total of 93 successful domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions involving UK companies. This included 46 domestic transactions, 21 inward transactions and 26 outward transactions representing a 21% fall on Q1 2015 (118) and a 11% fall on the number recorded in Q2 2014 (104).
