Business Sale Report acquisition update

Sun, 23 Mar 2014 | BUSINESS SALE

Hello and welcome to the Business Sale Report

Twenty two care homes have been put on the market after the owner, Mimosa Health Care Group, called in the administrators.

Fortunately, none of the care homes are being closed and for now, all one thousand staff are keeping their jobs. The business has been affected by the difficult economic climate and lower occupancy levels. A spokesman for the company says that its first priority is to ensure continuity of care for all residents in Mimosa homes.

And there’s been good news for small businesses as a drop in fuel prices has helped bring down the UK inflation rate to its lowest point in four years - just 2.7 per cent over the last twelve months. Business owners - and especially those who rely on logistics - are keenly aware of the importance of keeping the cost of doing business down.

And finally, we’ve teamed up with the London School of Business and Finance to publish a report on how the UK merger and acquisition landscape has changed since the Kraft Cadbury deal. You can read about these rule changes and more in the latest issue of the Business Sale Report.

See you next time.
