Mergers & Acquisitions

Buying or selling a business presents an opportunity to significantly improve shareholder return assuming the process is well planned, thought through and executed correctly. However, an unstructured less diligent approach presents a number of risks that could result in a costly, time consuming failure. Having the support of an experienced team, with detailed understanding of trade sales, disposals, acquistions and exit planning helps to reduce risk and increase the likelihood of a successful outcome for shareholders.

Our team have been involved in successful M&A activity over the last 2 decades, managing hundreds of millions of pounds of value transfer for FTSE100 companies, corporates, financial buyers, VCs and angel investors. This practical experience gained through driving many successful transactions helps provide business owners with competitive advantage, maximising the prospect of a successful and value-enhancing outcome.

We are typically retained to help evaluate the opportunity, pre-empt due diligence issues, market opportunities and support management through to completion. We work on a largely contingent basis, aligning our upside with that of the executive team.
