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.
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.
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.
It was a pleasure to work with the Cavendish team, led by Linda Sullivan. As well as displaying a deep understanding of our sector, they also made every effort to get under the skin of our business, which ensured that we were fully aligned from start to finish. In particular, I was hugely impressed by the way in which Linda conducted the process with a calm authority and professionalism throughout. She is a class act.
We are delighted with the outcome and feel that we have found the perfect partner for Dare in the Oliver Group. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cavendish to my peers in the industry.
Cavendish played an invaluable role throughout a complex transaction and in particular getting the transaction across the finishing line.
Linda Sullivan, James Ellis and the Cavendish team were excellent throughout the process and achieved a very positive result for the management and shareholders. I highly recommend them. Rex has an exciting future as part of Shutterstock, the NYSE quoted international company.
