This statistic illustrates the number of acquisitions carried out abroad by companies in the United Kingdom (UK) from 2010 to 2019. The term acquisition refers to a process in which one company takes ownership and control of another company. The source specifies that as of 2010, for an acquisition to be included in the results it has to have been a transaction with a value of one million British pounds or greater. It can be seen that the number of foreign acquisitions by UK companies fluctuated, reaching a total of 261 acquisitions abroad as of 2019.
