AAB Top Dealmakers in Scotland for 13th Consecutive Year

Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP (AAB), one of the UK’s leading independent firm of Chartered Accountants & Business Advisors, has been named as the top dealmakers in Scotland for a 13th consecutive year, after being recognised by the Scottish Business Insider as the accountants having completed the most deals in Scotland each year from 2005 – 2017.

The Scottish Business Insider’s review of the Scottish deals market shows that AAB completed 45 transactions that were publically announced in 2017, 70% more than any other accountancy firm during the same period. Notable transactions in which AAB were involved in during 2017 included the management buy-out of metal recycling specialists John Lawrie Group supported by Rubicon Partners and Grovepoint, the disposal of timber kit manufacturer Scotframe Timber Engineering to the French trade acquirer Saint Gobain and acting on the behalf of Oil & Gas rental company Harran in their strategic collaboration with OEG.

Douglas Martin, Head of Corporate Finance at AAB, said “We are delighted to be recognised as the top dealmakers in Scotland for a 13th consecutive year. This is a true testament to the continued exceptional support of our clients and contacts and the dedication of our talented team, who have adapted quickly to changing market dynamics.”

“With increased M&A activity in the Oil & Gas services sector, as well as greater activity in a variety of other sectors including Technology, Food & Drink, Leisure & Retail and Construction; we are excited to see what 2018 holds and how our strong pipeline of deals develop.”
