Good Merger Index


In this third edition of our annual Good Merger Index, we look at charity merger trends from May 2015 to April 2016, a period which saw 116 organisations undertake 54 mergers. In a new feature, we also return to the top 10 largest mergers we highlighted in the first Index (2013/4) for a look at their early progress, and we explore barriers to merger in the not-for-profit sector and possible policy solutions to them.


In this second edition of our annual Good Merger Index, we look at not-for-profit merger trends from May 2014 to April 2015, with a review of 129 charities and 16 housing associations undertaking mergers in the period. This shines a light on the level of consolidation in the not-for-profit sector as a whole, contrasts between different parts of the sector and drivers behind the mergers we saw.


In this first edition of The Good Merger Index we provide a snapshot of consolidation trends from January 2013 to April 2014, with a review of 189 organisations undertaking mergers in that period. A framework is included describing different types of not-for-profit deal as: Merger, Takeover, Subsidiary Model, Group Structure and Exchange of Services.
