Kingston Smith
Marc worked with us 11 years ago, when he and the team supported our management buy-out. He supported us in this process by offering advice and assistance every step of the way. Because of our longstanding relationship, they really understood our ambitions and delivered them. We are delighted with the result and have no issues in recommending Marc and his team to others.
James Ward Managing Director, Hammer Consolidated Holdings
Kingston Smith Corporate Finance understood our business and our requirements quickly. They were honest, thorough and ‘drilled down’ to the details well. The team were proactive and were able to predict what issues would arise during the management buy-out process. They are a full service firm and have extensive access to a good network of advisers.
Gareth Jones Managing Director, Alexander Associates
The Kingston Smith corporate finance team brought a strong mix of technical insight and commercialism to their role as reporting accountants. We look forward to working together further in the future.

Acquisitions & Buy-Outs

Acquisitions and buy-outs are complex transactions and normally, transformative processes in the life-cycle of any business. If an acquisition is targeted and skilfully managed, your business strengthens its competitive position and shareholder value increases.

Successful expansion of your business, through merger or acquisition, requires a balanced strategic plan that considers issues such as psychological impact, physical alterations and change management. We help you to review your long term aspirations and decisions on whether a merger or an acquisition is indeed appropriate for your business.

Through a series of key interviews, we examine your situation and help you create a robust strategy. We then use our understanding of your long term objectives to develop suitable criteria for the assessment of potential targets.

Our experienced and skilful team will lead you through the process, helping you to identify the most lucrative opportunities and select the best targets. Our eyes are firmly fixed on your business’s future.

And last, but not least we can assist in integrating your acquisition into your business once the transaction has taken place.

Sometimes the best route to an acquisition or sale is through a management buy-in (MBI) or management buy-out (MBO).
