"Cavendish achieved a superb result for both the shareholders and management team, putting in place all the things needed ahead of the sale then running a highly effective process. In the end it all came together beautifully – and very very quickly!”

Simon Russell, CEO of Scott Dunn

"Cavendish demonstrated a very good knowledge of luxury brands which, along with their private equity expertise, enabled them to find the perfect partner for Scott Dunn. The proof is in the result though. The deal terms achieved and transaction timing fully met my expectations. I would gladly recommend them to other business owners.”

Andrew Dunn, Founder & President of Scott Dunn

“The Cavendish team, led by Joe Stelzer, has provided invaluable advice in preparing our business for a sale process and assessing our options. This deal will give us more firepower and enable us to expand far more quickly. It’s fantastic news for our high net worth investors and broker partners alike.”

Duncan Kreeger, one of the founders of West One

"Cavendish handled the transaction with elegance and efficiency. They were proactive, everything kept to time and we completed as planned, less than six weeks after agreeing the heads of terms."

Rupert Morley, CEO of Sterling Relocation

“ Linda Sullivan, the Cavendish Media and Digital partner, and James Ellis were excellent. They totally understand our sector and were with us every step of the way, achieving a great result for the shareholders and a very good home for our business going forward. I highly recommend them.”

Robert Prevezer, Executive Chairman and founder of TCA

“This has been a highly complex transaction involving 10 jurisdictions. Cavendish has held our hands throughout the process, providing a dedicated team who have done a superb job; this has greatly reduced interruptions to our businesses whilst adhering to the original timetable. Cavendish has achieved a very successful sale at a fair price to a buyer who will enjoy significant strategic value from the purchase.”

Michael Bostelmann, Group Managing Director of Fandstan Electric Group

"TM Capital and Cavendish worked seamlessly to evaluate the best possible alternatives for 2Touch and navigate the complexities of a cross-border corporate divestiture to deliver a successful outcome for all parties. We appreciate the senior level commitment from TM and Cavendish and their relentless dedication in completing this important transaction."

David Eisenberg, SVP Strategy and Corporate Development, Acxiom Corporation

“Over the past 25 years or so the company has enjoyed strong growth and built up a very loyal client base of blue-chip customers. I wish management and Young Associates well as they take the company on to the next stage of its development and further success and would like to thank Cavendish Corporate Finance for doing an excellent job in facilitating the transaction.”

Andrew Terry, founder of Micad

"When looking for an advisor we decided we wanted someone who had specific experience in negotiating within the Private Equity space. It requires some additional skills to those needed in a trade sale and we were lucky to have found in Cavendish, a company that was able to help us."

Phillip Walter, CEO of Avantia and HomeProtect

“Gordon and Mike have built a strong relationship with the shareholders over the last three years, helping us to identify the right potential strategic partner and clearly articulating the strategic rational.”
