Completed Transactions

Over the past ten years we have worked with more than 75 different companies.  At any one time we typically only represent from five to ten companies.  We feel that we give the best service to clients by limiting the number of businesses we represent.  Our overriding objective is to sell companies as quickly as possibe, and to do so we try and be very pro-active in our marketing.

Most of the companies we represent sell within six months of listing.  In the recent past we have sold the following companies:
