“I would just like to say thank you very much for all your efforts to get this deal over the finishing line. It certainly had some sticky moments along the way, not least of which the day before signing. You did say it would be a roller-coaster ride and it certainly was!
We are delighted with the result both personally and for the company and the support from Joe, Anya and the Cavendish team during the process was invaluable.
We made absolutely the right choice in appointing Cavendish. Michael Jewell and the team were instrumental in getting us the deal we wanted. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone thinking about a sales process.
Cavendish introduced us to GE and managed the negotiation and coordinated the transaction due diligence. Their involvement was instrumental to the deal being successful.
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.
This marks a significant opportunity for our partners, customers and people as we become part of the global Kyocera family and continue the journey we started back in 1988. When looking for an advisor we wanted someone with an international network and experience of working with buyers both here and overseas. Cavendish had the expertise to facilitate the transaction and the support they provided was invaluable.
The Cavendish team, led by Nick Jones, did an excellent job managing the process and ensuring the smooth closing of the transaction in a timely manner. They were always professional and aligned with our shareholder goals – many thanks to the whole team.
