Helping Business Owners Find, Acquire and Intergrate.
Shaping the sale

Fundraising

You may be considering acquisitions as part of a long-term strategic growth strategy, as a grow to exit plan or even just as an opportunistic tactical move. Acquisitions can add scale, capability and assets that you may not have. More importantly it may be much cheaper and quicker to acquire another business than to develop the capability yourself.

01

Setting Strategy

Acquisitions can add scale, capability and assets that you may not have. More importantly it may be much cheaper and quicker to acquire another business than to develop the capability yourself.

Whatever the reason, we have the experience necessary to make your acquisitions successful. We help clients identify, contact, negotiate, complete and integrate acquisitions.

"Due in no small part to James’ unfaltering energy and commitment to the deal, we shook on the sale in early November and had a signed [agreement] and the business sale completed by Christmas. Unbelievable. I am not sure whether I will create another business in the future or not. But if it ever got to the ‘exit’ stage, I would definitely want James Pugh on my team."

"James was the Deal Leader in the sale of my majority shareholding in Vegetarian Express concluded in September 2016. He guided us through face-to-face meetings with multiple interested parties, and led the final negotiations with short-listed bidders with great professionalism. I owe the optimisation of deal value to his great skill and experience in M&A, and prior understanding and experience in working with SMEs,"

Doug was our deal lead when we sold our business in 2015. It is hard to overstate his expertise and skill in this role. His ability to navigate the turmoil of a business sale with consummate calm and to instantly identify creative ways round every single barrier is second to none. Moreover, his personable and gentle nature, combined with his obvious insight and knowledgeability, helps him to earn trust, gain respect and build a solid rapport with every stakeholder in the process, including the buyer. It is small wonder he is able to achieve so much from getting the best buyer, price and terms of sale to keeping the sanity of all around him. It could have been so much more nerve wracking than it was but having someone as able and talented Doug managing our sale took away so much worry. If we did it again, we’d want to have Doug by our side every single time.
