The Oury Clark Corporate Finance team sits within Oury Clark Chartered Accountants and is regulated by the FSA.
Our lead advisory and transaction support teams work from both our London and Thames Valley offices and have clients throughout the UK and abroad. We offer a bespoke and discreet service and our growing client list includes serial entrepreneurs, high-net-worth family offices and acquisitive foreign companies.
In corporate finance our primary focus is executing acquisitions and disposals on behalf of clients, both corporate and private, with added transaction support. Our transaction support practice independently provides financial due diligence for vendors and acquirers as well as project management support in the deal execution to banks, private equity firms and corporations.
We are at the forefront of Business Continuity working in line with the British Standard 25999 and the Financial Services Authority Managed Practice Guide.
We can assist you with researching and approaching potential acquisition targets. We have a very high “hit rate” in terms of responses and we have closed a number of acquisitions on the basis of having initially made discreet approaches.
When it comes to your exit strategy, our corporate finance team can advise you on how best to groom your business in order to maximise its value. We can also research potential purchasers and make discreet approaches on your behalf. Please visit our pre sale grooming guidance.
Once a purchaser has been found, we can guide you through the process, conduct the legal sale documentation, and prepare information for the purchaser’s financial due diligence team in order to assist in the smooth running of this complex and stressful operation.
We will need to consider what level of involvement you wish to have after the sale. Any purchaser is likely to want to maintain some continuity and therefore planning ahead for this in terms of ensuring there is a suitable management in place can aid your departure from the business being in your desired format.
In addition to the above lead advisory services, our corporate finance team has undertaken numerous business valuations and has the necessary expertise to build detailed financial models. These forecasts can be widely used (e.g. for strategic planning, raising finance, project evaluation etc) to maximise value during the sale process.
Although we welcome the opportunity to, and have the skills to, assist all prospective clients, our track record and expertise in property-backed acquisitions within the education, civil engineering and construction, specialist healthcare and leisure sectors is second-to-none.
