Lodders’ corporate and commercial team has advised the shareholders of Coretech Solutions on the £multi-million sale to a new UK subsidiary of Dutch company PFM Global Holding B.V., the fourth deal completed by the team since January, signaling a strong start for M&A activity in 2021.
Coretech’s directors Phil Cox and Matt Hipwood remain as directors in the new company ‘PFM Intelligence Group UK’, and the individual sellers received a minority shareholding in the newly formed UK subsidiary of the Dutch company.
Further deals completed by Lodders corporate team so far this year include advising the shareholders of West Midlands-based Chrysalis Loyalty on the company’s sale to an automotive software group that includes leading intelligence provider Autofutura, advising the owner of Henley Kitchen & Bakery in Henley in Arden on the sale of the business, and Whitehouse Industries on its acquisition of Nutters Fastenings by a team led by the firm’s Graham Spalding.
“These transactions typify the buoyant M&A and corporate transactions market this year,” says Kim Klahn, partner and head of the corporate and commercial team at Lodders Stratford upon Avon office, “Many deals are completing quickly, within tight timescales and in just a few weeks, with buyers and sellers seeking to capitalise on opportunities as soon as possible.
“The volume of completed deals and more new instructions on the horizon for Lodders’ team confirm predictions that 2021 will be a busy year for corporate activity,” she says. “The COVID-19 pandemic has been a catalyst for businesses, people, and economies to adapt to survive.
“What businesses and their owners can do depends on financial strength, industry sector, appetite for growth, and future plans, and for those that have weathered the storm well, there are growth opportunities. This can be the perfect time to buy a competitor, supplier, or distributor, or for business owners deciding it is time to do something different and the ideal time to sell the business. “Contact us
