While surfing the Internet, I found the following information. The news comes from America however the UK often has similar trends.
“As noted in a recent article in The Colorado Springs Business Journal, the Market Pulse Quarterly Survey Report from the fourth quarter of 2012 indicated that the retirement of baby boomers was noted as the top reason for selling a business for the first time in history. Moreover, the mass exodus of baby boomers from the workforce is expected to cause a 35-percent increase in sales of businesses by the end of 2013. In fact, many of these folks might already have sold had it not been for the recession of the late 2000’s.”
