We’ve continued our strong summer here at Cooper Parry Corporate Finance, completing four deals in the last two months.
These deals all occurred in two of our key sectors: business services and technology. Geographically, they’ve been spread across the Midlands, and they’ve also included the first deal out of our new London office in Moorgate.
We’ve added to our proven track record of working with private equity with two high profile deals: the buyout of Solihull-based software provider Phoebus Software Limited by NorthEdge Capital and the buyout of Simply Conveyancing, backed by Livingbridge.
Following on from the sale of building compliance software business William Martin last year, we’ve advised on the sale of Inflexion private equity backed Alcumus Group’s building compliance software division to management.
The other deal during this period saw us provide corporate finance advice in the merger between major independent property firms Fisher German and Vine Property Management, creating a £41m turnover group.
Andy Parker, Head of Cooper Parry Corporate Finance, said:
“Despite the drop off in activity seen in the mega-deals market caused by economic uncertainty, private companies and mid-market private equity investors can still make acquisitions with lots of equity and debt funding readily available to invest in quality businesses with clearly defined strategies and strong management teams.”
