The TLH sector is continuously expanding, and covers activities such as:
- Sport & gaming
- Events & hospitality
The M&A activity of the travel, leisure and hospitality sector has seen a strong appetite from both private equity investors and corporates to develop their activity in the sector.
Our corporate finance team has recently advised on significant deals in the Travel, Leisure and Hospitality sector in the Thames Valley and the South of England and benefits from an in-depth knowledge of the sector.
Although affected by heightened security measures, the travel sector has observed a strong growth with the demands of travellers for both niche travel as well as luxury experiences and we have advised on many transactions in this sector in the past years.
The current consumer trend of spending more on experiences has led to a strong market increase for businesses operating in the leisure sector. We have recently advised on several fundraisings and acquisitions in the leisure industry and particularly in cinema and indoor sport centres.
Boosted by the performances of GB athletes at sporting events, the sport industry has experienced a solid growth in recent years with a particular emphasis on innovative sports. The boom in gaming has seen a number of new businesses rapidly growing and searching development capital. We have advised companies in both the sport industry and the gaming sector on fundraisings and disposals recently.
What our clients say
It was a pleasure working with the team at HMT. Having founded and built Green Board Games over a 23 year period, it was reassuring to have someone as capable and knowledgeable as HMT guide me through the process.
HMT did a great job, efficiently identifying the key financial issues, helping the deal to complete. Connection Capital has worked with HMT on a number of transactions and the quality of work on this deal matched the high levels we expect.
