Case Studies

Outdoor/leisure sector

A deal was completed a in Nov 2022, which was a £2m+ deal for a business specialising in the supply and installation of garden rooms. We acted for the buyer. It was a deal where the owner rolled around 20% of the equity and the existing Operations Director increased his stake to around 20%, leaving our buyer to purchase the balance. The business has gone from strength to strength since the deal.

Dentistry/implantology sector

This was a deal for a £13m turnover specialist implantology and dentistry group based in Portugal but with a small existing London operation where we sourced acquisition finance for 2 small acquisitions in the central London area so that the group could start their buy and build strategy roll out in the UK.

Retail sector

Alan Horridge is a well known entrepreneur who carried out an MBO at Americana, the Manchester based fashion wholesaler, after which he developed the high profile brands Bench and Hooch. Paul Griffiths subsequently introduced him to Dave and Heather Brint, the joint force behind Footie Chick – the brand for women who play, watch or dream about football. Alan invested his own capital, along that of his ex Finance Director to help move the business forwards. Paul has known the owners of the Footie Chick brand and was pleased to make the connection knowing that Alan’s background would be highly relevant to their brand and development plans.

Healthcare products sector

Paul Griffiths was approached by a business sale agent to source a management buyin candidate on behalf of it’s client, Care-Ability Healthcare, a £2m manufacturer of specialist products for the medical sector. Paul carried out extensive research into his network and found a senior management candidate operating within a key provider in the sector. This MBI candidate was subsequently introduced and was ultimately appointed to drive a new division of the Care-Ability brand into new sectors and away from it’s reliance on NHS contracts and customers.
