AAB Named Most Active Dealmakers in Scotland in First Half of 2019

Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP (AAB), one of the UK’s leading independent firms of chartered accountants and business advisors, has been recognised as the most active dealmakers in Scotland in the first half of 2019.

The firm’s corporate finance team has been named by the Scottish Business Insider as the accountants having completed the most deals in the six-month period from January to June 2019, topping their league tables with 21 completed deals. Recognition of the volume of deal activity delivered by AAB through topping the league tables is something the firm has achieved in each of the previous 14 years from 2005-2018.

The 21 deals completed by AAB have spanned a number of different sectors across Scotland, including oil & gas, food & drink, technology, construction, healthcare and business services. Some of the deals publicised include DC Thomson Media’s acquisition of PSP Media, the disposal of Rainbow Services to Grosvenor Health and Social Care, the merger of Inspire Catering with CH&Co’s Scottish operations, the disposal of Apollo Offshore to Global Energy Group and the disposal of Independent Oilfield Services to WellConnection Group.

Douglas Martin, head of corporate finance at AAB, commented: “The Scottish Business Insider deals tables are a great benchmark of the scale of deal activity occurring across Scotland, and we are delighted that our highly entrepreneurial team continues to be recognised as the most active accountants amongst the deal-making community.

“Our team’s commitment to initiating and delivering deals for our clients is outstanding and we are grateful to our clients who continue to trust us with these important transactions, and for the support we receive from our contacts across Scotland and further afield. We have invested heavily in our growing and dynamic team in recent months and it is an exciting time for us as they continue to pursue and create deal opportunities in our key markets across Scotland.”
