With the fall in the value of the sterling and decreasing company valuations post Brexit, many are expecting UK plc to become targets for overseas buyers. Maggie Brereton, Deal Advisory Partner KPMG in the UK, discusses how buyers can navigate through the UK’s complex takeover process and capitalise on lower share prices and sterling’s weakness.


  • Taking over a UK plc has probably got tougher in the last five years because of a new Takeover Code.
  • Tough rules provide a competitive advantage for some by discouraging others that might not have readily-available funds.
  • The UK’s rigorous takeover process is there to ensure all shareholders are treated fairly.
