    What do we do?

     

    We help stakeholders sell their businesses. Our focus is on securing maximum value for what is for many their greatest asset and often their life's work.

     

    How are we different?

     

    Our experience comes from working in-house for many of the world's leading listed and private companies as well as several SMEs. We know the M&A process but also how companies approach transactions, value, make decisions and gain internal approval. This insight gives clients an advantage when negotiating terms.

     

    Why is our experience important?

     

    With around 80% of companies being sold to strategic buyers (companies who can realise synergies from acquisitions), who typically pay a premium over private equity buyers, our inside knowledge means we can help stakeholders to maximise value from the sale of their business.

     

    Who do we work with?

     

    Our focus is on working with stakeholders to realise 100% of their investment and specialise in small and medium-size enterprises with EBITDA of £1m to £5m. Our expertise comes from a wide range of industries but have a particular expertise in:

     

    • medical aesthetics & beauty clinics
    • diamond wholesaling & retailing
    • waste management
    • cinema
    • industrial products
    • packaging 
    • professional services
