Building Value

While our focus and reward are centred on successfully completed transactions, the team at Rockworth have a wealth of experience as both advisors and principals carrying out equity transactions.  We are therefore increasingly involved, particularly during the current economic turbulence, working with clients that may be considering a transaction in the medium term, 6 – 24 months.

Key questions we address with business owners include:

  • Why consider a sale or acquisition?
  • Is equity fund-raising the most efficient way of raising capital in a particular scenario?
  • What would be the optimal management structure for the business going forward?
  • What types of buyers are in the market and what strategic goals are they seeking to achieve through acquisition?
  • How might buyers go about valuing the business and what factors are important?

Areas of current activity

The Rockworth team are currently involved, on a retained basis, advising companies in the following areas.  Each of these particular clients is working towards a sale in the medium to longer term.

  • Media and marketing services – PR, experiential, publishing of social stationery
  • Business Services – IT recruitment, apprenticeships and education
  • Consumer & Leisure – FMCG products
  • Engineering & technology – specialist engineering, software

If you are considering any kind of transaction in one of these areas we would very much like to hear from you.
