It’s been a great start to the new financial year for the firm, which has advised on a range of corporate transactions with an aggregate value of £50 million during the first quarter.
Having advised the shareholders of Heron Food Group on its £152 million acquisition by retail giant B&M, which was recently named ‘Deal of the Year’ in the Yorkshire Rainmaker Awards 2018, the team has also assisted clients on a range of transactions including:
- advising national metals and plastic distributor Locate Supplies Ltd on its sale to the UK subsidiary of TW Metals;
- assisting long-standing client Burton Roofing Merchants Ltd, one of the UK’s leading independent roofing merchants, on its acquisition of counterpart Brian Gow Roofing Warehouse Ltd; and,
- advising The Flynn family on the sale of Kenwick Park Estate, a thriving modern leisure resort, to Coppergreen Developments Ltd.
Partner and head of the corporate team, Andrew Funnell, said: “We are fortunate to have a great client base that has been undeterred by market uncertainty, proving entrepreneurial businesses continue to have a healthy appetite for M&A related activity. That trend looks set to continue over the coming months with plenty of transactions in the pipeline for completion.
