Interim executives say UK companies should avoid M&A deals
Businesses in the UK should continue to avoid the risk of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) over the next year, according to the vast majority of directors and managers surveyed by Interim Partners.
The research found only six per cent of interim executives said UK companies should pursue M&A deals as their growth strategy over the next year, Fresh Business Thinking reports.
Instead, 60 per cent said enterprises should focus attention on a more straightforward method of pursuing organic growth.
However, Interim Partners claims there is a growing confidence in UK businesses, which is indicated by interim managers lowering the importance of cost-cutting and debt reduction for companies.
Only six per cent of senior managers said cost cutting should be a priority, which is down from 11 per cent in 2012. Just eight per cent labelled debt reduction as a priority - down from 12 per cent last year.
