A message to owners
From our own experiences building a family business, we understand what it takes to operate and grow a successful SME. We have been through the highs and lows, experienced restructuring, brought in new members of management and come through the high stakes process of a company sale.
We understand the emotion involved in businesses that have been built from the ground up and the importance of their people.
Born from an understanding of family business values, we are sensitive to the seller’s and management’s transition goals and will look to craft a deal that allows them to achieve their objectives, while leaving the business poised for continued and sustainable long-term success.
We believe we offer a unique solution to the continued success of your business and want to work together to create a smooth transition with minimal impact on your employees and customers.
We are searching for businesses with:
Up to £5m EBITDA
EBITDA margins of 10% or more
5+ years of continuous profitability
We are not interested in:
Minority investments or growth capital needs
Early stage companies, start-ups, or new industries
Distressed or turnaround situations
The acquisition process
The process around the transaction will be personal and confidential.
We want to work together to create a smooth transition for minimal impact on your employees and customers.
We will take the following steps to get to know your business:
Introductory call to learn more about you and the business
Confidential review of high-level financial information
In-person visit to get to know each other better
Additional analysis to further evaluate the business
Put together a valuation of the business and discuss the future together
