Pharmacy transactions off to flying start in 2017

21st June 2017

The pharmacy team at Ansons in Staffordshire has had a strong start to 2017 with the completion of nine pharmacy deals in February and March with an aggregate value in excess of £13 million. Transactions included purchases, disposals, refinances and a relocation and were based throughout the UK, with a large number in the Midlands, South East and South West of England. This volume of transactions reinforces a strong transactional pharmacy market, which is a trend thought by Ansons and others, including leading agents, to be likely to continue throughout 2017.

Jamie Gill, associate solicitor in the pharmacy team, said that ‘despite the looming NHS funding cuts, the market remains strong, particularly with smaller groups looking to grow their portfolio. Many sellers are still receiving offers above their asking price.’
