More companies mulling acquisitions

Five years after the start of the recession, it appears that the companies are again starting to think about mergers and acquisitions.

Firms, according to BDO, a finance house, have experienced moderate growth of late, which would give them the resources for a takeover.

Companies also said they were being contacted more often about possible acquisitions.

A survey by DVCA, a group of venture capitalists, found that 74 percent of investors believed the number of acquisitions would be higher in the next 12 months than in the same period the year before.
