We provide Merger and Acquisition advisory services to Buyers and Sellers, typically in the mid-market, Information Technology (IT) sectors.

Sale Mandates

We represent Clients who wish to sell TMT businesses and we have established a strong reputation for successfully selling privately owned companies run by a single owner or a team of shareholders. We function as a trusted advisor to our clients throughout the sale process until the transaction is completed and post-acquisition including whenever an Earnout is part of the transaction structure.

A primary objective for us is to create competition amongst potential Buyers for the shareholders and to offer our clients choice in terms of potential Buyers and offers. Our effective research capability together with our knowledge, contacts and our international reach ensures we identify and contact as many domestic and international potential Buyers as possible. It is important to us that we thoroughly understand the business strategy, objectives and requirements of our "Sale Mandates" prior to starting the project.

The Sale process is normally kept confidential to protect the company and its market position. The release of information to potential buyers is controlled carefully ensuring we first provide minimal information: additional information is released only after further qualification and under a non-disclosure agreement. We work as a team with our clients to keep their time, especially in the earlier stages, to a minimum so that management can stay focused on sustaining good operating results throughout the process, yielding the shareholders the benefits of a higher valuation with the ultimate sale.

Because we have a seniors-only team of highly experienced M&A practitioners who have had a succesful operational career in TMT we are less demanding of our clients in the preparation stage and we know how to present the business to its best advantage. Our results are impressive as is the endorsements of our clients such as Jason Rabbetts, Lorraine Cousins, David Mearing and Darren Cairns.

Buy Mandates

We represent Clients who wish to acquire information technology businesses in the UK, Europe and USA or Canada and we predominantly act for quoted companies and the more aggressive and ambitious private companies. These are the companies which have concluded that acquiring appropriate businesses can be an efficient route to growth and a faster, less risky and less expensive method than conventional, organic growth strategies. We function as a trusted advisor to our clients throughout the buy process until the transaction is completed.

We utilize our strong research capability together with our knowledge and contacts to identify and contact as many appropriate domestic and international acquisition targets as possible. Our “Buy Mandate” clients are assisted in helping them identify, evaluate and purchase medium size and small companies typically in the £3-40 million value range and sometimes larger. Advice and guidance is provided in terms of optimum acquisition targets, negotiation and business strategy, the due diligence process along with post-acquisition integration planning.

We are experienced in the subtleties of the acquisition process from finding and approaching prospective sellers through final implementation of the deal. Our results are impressive.
