Client Testimonials

Cavendish has advised on some 400 company sales. Below is a selection of some of our client testimonials:

“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

“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 - Fandstan Electric Group Limited

“Does exactly what it says on the tin… You should choose your advisors very carefully, based on personality (could I work with them) and importantly their past performance. The best testimonial I could ever give to Jonathan and Anya at Cavendish is that I had the best team to support and advise me and my management team and I would definitely use them again! If you choose to work with them you really won’t be disappointed – but hurry though, they are seriously good, so don’t miss out, call them today!”

Neil Cooper, founder and Chairman of Coopers of Stortford

Life's just not the same without your phone calls EVERY day!! Thank you so much for your help throughout the process. I really appreciated your advice, diligence and hard work throughout and you have been a pleasure to work with. I would gladly recommend you to my contacts going through similar processes.

Seim Munif, Group Financial Controller, Sthree plc

“Cavendish ran a very tight process and generated real bidding excitement. Opta is seen by Perform as a the missing piece in their content jigsaw.”

Aidan Cooney, CEO, Opta Sports

“Thank you so much for the hard work you put into our sale. "We are delighted with the result both personally and for the company. We now have some work to do in maximising the benefits of the deal to both parties. Your support during the deal was excellent and helped us go through a process that was completely new to us. It seemed to go very smoothly and I know that much of that was due to your background work with Egis's advisors. We also felt well supported on the detail of the final stages. “Many thanks once again to you both. It was a great time and a perfect outcome.”

Mike Shorthose, Chairman and co-founder - Helios

"Cavendish took the time to really understand our business enabling them to have a professional and well thought out approach to the deal. They assisted immensely with the due diligence process this being reflected in the depth of information needed at times along with the need to carefully manage the numerous requests for information. They provided the kind of support which in the process of selling your business gives you confidence that there is balance between providing information and negotiating elements of the deal.

Anthony French, IT & Finance Director, First City Care

“The Cavendish Team have been instrumental in delivering me a buyer which is a perfect fit for my business. I appointed Caroline Belcher to perform an Exit Review which led on to the sale mandate, and they have been with me every step of the way. This is a wonderful milestone in our history and I am delighted.”

Ian Moore, Executive Chairman Moore Group Limited

‘Cavendish took on the challenge of selling Robert Dyas against the background of a very difficult environment for retailers in general caused by the current economic downturn. However, they were undaunted by this and found a buyer that allowed existing shareholders to exit and for the Robert Dyas business to have a new owner who wants to expand and develop the business.’

Geoff Brady, Chairman of Robert Dyas Holdings Limited

Linda , Gordon and the team at Cavendish were superb. They managed a competitive sale process and generated interest from international buyers from the broad media and healthcare sectors.
