Recent Transaction News
Recent transactions include acting as lead advisors for the owners of Kittiwake Developments Limited in its sale to Parker Hannifin Corporation, in the field of condition monitoring; the sale of RDI, an online learning business, to Capella Education of the USA; and for Bush and Company, the leading critical injury case management and expert witness provider in their £28m sale to Aim-listed NAHL Group PLC.
Over the last year we have seen a further uplift in activity as the economy has strengthened, in particular in the engineering and technology sectors with interest arising predominantly from overseas strategic acquirers. Alongside lead advisory work for private vendors, we are working with a range of organisations helping to maximise performance and prepare for a sale in the medium term.
