It has been another award-winning year for the PKFSC corporate finance division, being crowned ‘SME Advisory Team of the Year’ at Insider Dealmakers’ Awards in September 22. This demonstrates another great year of dealmaking for the team, with deal activity in the Midlands continuing to show resilience against the economic and political uncertainty.

At a glance

During our first full calendar year of membership within the PKF network, the Midlands Corporate Finance team completed 29 deals worth £346.8m. This includes five cross-border deals, demonstrating our global reach and access to international purchasers.

Since our last annual deals review was released, Tom Joy and Josh Gurton have been promoted to Senior Manager and Senior Executive, respectively, reflecting their contribution to a number of successful deals in Birmingham. In Derby, we have also welcomed Jasbir Mangat, Executive. The success and expansion of our team shows our ambition for further growth and we continue to recruit across all offices.

In 2022, we advised on a high proportion of sell-side opportunities, the increased demand to sell being matched by large corporations and investors having dry powder to deploy.
