With 15 offices across the UK and a pan-European network, Christie & Co is the largest firm specialising in the dental sector and the only one undertaking RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) accredited valuations as well as selling dental practices.
Demand has been increasingly strong across the sector, with first time buyers, expanding mini groups, and corporates all eager to acquire quality dental businesses, as Christie & Co reported a 12.3% increase in prices paid for practices in their Business Outlook 2018 report.
As activity in the industry continues to grow, those wishing to discuss buying, selling or just gauging the market, can meet the members of the Christie & Co Dental team at the event to learn more.
Simon Hughes, Managing Director – Medical at Christie & Co comments, “The show is always a great time to meet up with new and existing contacts and no doubt it will be a very busy two days! We look forward to hearing some insights and updates from leaders in all aspects of the sector, sharing their knowledge and expertise around this exciting industry.
“We have seen consolidation as the key word in the dental sector in 2017. The market remained strong and our team completed £90m of transactions in what was a record year for Christie & Co. There has been a flurry of activity across the market, with the corporate landscape seeing a busy round of mergers and acquisitions, affecting some of the largest providers, while independents have also been expanding, with multiple offers generated, particularly on larger businesses in strategic locations.
”As demand continues to outstrip supply and good market liquidity, supported by strong industry dynamics, we believe that 2018 will continue to see a good level of activity across the market.”
