MERGERS & ACQUISITION | The volume of business transfers is expected to increase sharply

Mergers and acquisitions




Climate of crisis and inflation:

the volume of business transfers is expected to increase sharply


The market is changing, and mergers and acquisitions seem to be preferred to the creation of new entities. SME managers believe more than ever in external growth.


A study conducted by Bpifrance Le Lab was recently revealed by « Les Echos ». It underlines that one out of two business leaders plans to sell their entity within the next five years, and that seven out of ten leaders plan to buy.

In fact, 47% of the 668 SME managers surveyed in 2022 plan to sell their company. Faced with this, no less than 72% of respondents wish to resort to external growth to promote the development of their entity. Difficulties such as inflation, rising interest rates or the cost of energy have therefore not had a negative impact on their belief in external growth.


During this complex M&A process, a large majority chose to be accompanied by a lawyer, a chartered accountant and a banking partner. This top three is at your disposal at Céliance. We put at your disposal a multidisciplinary team and a large network.
