Corbett Keeling advises
Geoffrey Wilmot in relation
to potential bid for
Centaur Media Plc.
“Corbett Keeling were a breath of fresh air - they came highly recommended and I can see why. We were a young management team with no experience in selling a business or trying to achieve an MBO and it was initially quite daunting. Their approach was personal and it really felt like they were not only on our side but totally supporting us, ensuring we understood each step and what we could achieve. It was largely due to them that we achieved the MBO we wanted. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone and have already done so.”
HELEN MERFIELD, MD, HCML Ltd
“Over the course of the sale of our business we worked with several members of the team at Corbett Keeling. They were all excellent – showing strength in depth and breadth. The care and attention they put into advising us, and their skill in finding a buyer and dealing sensitively with all the parties involved in the transaction, were outstanding.”
STEVE AND JULIE HILL, FOLLOWING THE SALE OF HARRIS HILL TO A MANAGEMENT BUY-IN TEAM
“Corbett Keeling advised me on our recent MBO. It was the most important deal of my life and so it was essential I had the best advice available. Jim Keeling was engaged with the deal as if it was his own. His personal involvement, attention to detail, experience and sixth sense of knowing what to do and when, were a huge benefit and comfort to me. Experts in their field, Corbett Keeling are a corporate finance firm with the calibre and expertise to help you achieve your goals, but also the empathy and customer care to make you feel special.”
MARK CORNFORD, CEO, INTEGRITY PRINT
“A million thanks to the team at Corbett Keeling for
all your heroic efforts on our behalf … in the words of
Harold Macmillan ‘No-one could have tried harder,
no-one could have been more persuasive …’”
BORIS JOHNSON, MAYOR OF LONDON
“Corbett Keeling identified and introduced us to Hodgson & Faraday as a suitable acquisition target. They then provided valuable input in the negotiations to help us complete the transaction."
DAVID SAUNDERSON, CONTROLLING SHAREHOLDER IN SAUNDERSON ASSET MANAGEMENT
Our clients are generally undertaking transactions that are crucial to their future success: the outcome will have a material impact on them. In these circumstances, we believe they need the best possible advice. Our approach is designed to meet this need.
The chance to carry out an MBO is
often a “once in a lifetime” opportunity
for a management team to make
substantial amounts of money for
themselves. Recognise the opportunity
before it becomes widely apparent and
get specialist advice from the outset.
An owner's exit from - for example sale of - a business is a major event. Having developed the business, great care is required in maximising its value. Specialist corporate finance advice is crucial in order to achieve the best possible result.
