Where will funding come from for the mergers and acquisitions sector?

Today's renewed speculation regarding a potential takeover of Sainsbury's has highlighted the fact that while there is interest in some areas of the UK economy and specific businesses, where will the liquidity come from to fund these deals?

An upsurge in takeover and merger activity is unlikely to go unnoticed by UK banks who will take this as a positive sign that both domestic and overseas investors are starting to see value in the UK. This could be the event which opens the door to increased liquidity because there is money to be made in the UK business arena and many overseas investors are apparently keen to do so.

An increase in liquidity for the corporate market will almost certainly have a knock-on effect to the consumer and business arena and we should hopefully see a slow but sure return to former liquidity levels. Quite how long this will take remains to be seen but the ongoing increase in corporate activity is certainly a positive development for the UK economy and a positive move for UK investors.

We now have Cadbury's under pressure from a potential US suitor and there are now rumours that Sainsbury's is also on the shopping list of a well heeled and well oiled investment company.
