    Analysis: Clinging to life in the ghost town

    2020-07-15T07:18:00Z

    London, you may have heard, is a ghost town. In the latest round of borderline dystopian statistics to surface as a result of the pandemic, just 7,000 of the 120,000 workers based in Canary Wharf are back at their desks. And although office workers across the capital may be thrilled to be without the twice daily commuter Hunger Games, for those in hospitality, a few stifling minutes on the Central line is a non-issue if the alternative is unemployment. In the last month alone, city-based to-go brands including Wasabi, Tossed, Pret and most recently Itsu have appointed advisors to assess their options, but whilst, historically, the mention of advisors might ring alarm bells, faced with the current economic climate, it could be time to shed the stigma.

    M&A Review of the Year

    2019-12-16T08:08:00Z

    It certainly hasn’t been a year in hospitality M&A for the faint hearted, but for those who have stuck with the sector and taken a long-term view, opportunity has knocked. Despite fears of an investor hiatus as a result of lingering uncertainty (ongoing Brexit delays certainly haven’t been helpful to M&A advisors!), the past 12 months has again proved the robustness of the M&A market in this sector, and points to further opportunities for 2020.
