UK M&A Q3 2023 Valuation Indices

Category: Market Report

report Highlights

Highlights from our Q3 2023 UK M&A Valuation Indices, covering UK M&A transaction multiples for M&A deals completed in July – September 2023.

The M&A market, in terms of deal volumes, has stabilised following a decline that began in Q2  2022. This decline followed abnormally high levels of activity in 2021 and early 2022.

When comparing deal volumes for Q3 2023 2. UK M&A Deal Volumes – Q3 2022 v Q3 2023 against the comparative period in 2022, volumes were 16% lower.

Our provisional data indicates that multiples have decreased in Q3 2023 compared to the previous quarter.


Our analysis tends to suggest that, all other variables being equal, multiples paid for businesses within the Industrials & Business Support Services and the Consumer segments will be lower than those in the Technology, Media & Telecommunications, Healthcare and Financial Services sectors.

The greater share of Technology, Media and Telecommunications deals in Q2 2023 and Q3 2023 may be a factor in supporting multiples in these quarters relative to Q4 2022 and Q1 2023.
