In 2017, Livingstone completed 73 transactions around the world and achieved record-high revenue. The growing global economy, combined with our sharper sector focus and increased collaboration within our global platform, enabled us to deliver exceptionally strong performances in each of our regions.
The US, German and Swedish economies continued on their growth path and saw strong transaction volumes, while Spain emerged from its decade-long recession. And, despite concerns around the potential impact of Brexit on UK mergers and acquisitions (M&A), the country’s economy, and level of M&A activity, remained resilient.
With 120 professionals spread across seven offices on three continents, we can provide our clients with the global reach and sector depth they deserve, without feeling the economic pressure to flee the lower end of the middle market that frustrates so many of our larger competitors.
Livingstone occupies a unique space, in that it has sufficient scale and global reach to offer equivalent capabilities to our largest competitors, without losing the entrepreneurial focus of a boutique. Our unique market position has enabled us to grow, and we continue to invest behind that growth. We are investing in our people through world-class training programs; in systems to maintain the highest quality data on buyers and investors, and their behaviors; as well as in our brand.
