“Cavendish’s Exit Review allowed us to align and mobilize all stakeholders on the key priorities that have the most impact on valuation over a 6-18 month period – a very valuable exercise”.
Terry Lee, Chairman, SENAD

 

“We are delighted to announce the successful sale of Finsbury Orthopaedics in what are challenging market conditions. The outcome proves the huge potential of the product portfolio built up by Finsbury as well as the ability of Cavendish to manage a highly competitive sale process with multinational buyers and to deliver value today for future potential. We are confident that DePuy will provide the best platform for the successful development and marketing of Finsbury’s world class portfolio of products going forward.”
Colin Smith, CFO, Finsbury Orthopaedics

 

“The Exit Review process managed by Caroline Belcher was very good at defining what were the priorities to exit and galvanising the management team into making the necessary changes. Without this intervention, we would not have been able to attract such interest in the market place nor have been able to achieve this price.”
Eric Winkler, owner and Managing Director, Saitek

 

“Cavendish efficiently and successfully delivered completion of a very complex transaction. They managed the differing requirements of the competing and often opposite-thinking parties involved, they maintained leadership, direction and certainty throughout the transaction, and ensured that the Board of Liberty Plc and its shareholders achieved the end goal, no matter what problems were encountered.”
Andrew Blurton, Finance Director of MWB Group Holdings Plc, (Liberty’s 68% shareholder)

 

“I am entirely confident that Raleigh has found the ideal buyer to support the employees, customers, suppliers and the future growth of the business.”
Alan Finden-Croft of Raleigh Cycle Limited

 

“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

“It has been a great pleasure working with you. I could not have done that final push of the journey I embarked upon 20 years ago without you. You really did wonderful work for me, especially in that last mile. I am so grateful.”

Toby Baxendale, founder and CEO of Seafood Holdings

 

“The team at Cavendish demonstrated their international reach and their tenacity to stick with the deal until it closed. They found the ideal owner… We are very excited at the new opportunities that we can now develop.”
Dylan Williams, Managing Director of Royal Berkshire Shooting School

 

“The comprehensive exit review together with thorough pre-sale grooming by Caroline Belcher established the platform for this sale. The Cavendish team skillfully structured the sale process and further negotiated through a protracted and difficult climate to secure a very satisfactory sale. They were professional in every department.”
Mike Thorpe, Managing Director of Express Finance

 

“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 Caroline Belcher and Michael Jewell 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

 

“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

 

“This is a cracking result for both the Hancock family and the management team. You did a fantastic job balancing out the conflicts that might otherwise have arisen and achieving a deal that works for everyone.”
Mark Watson, CEO of Hancocks
