Castle client completes multi-million pound acquisition from US listed group

Castle Corporate Finance - Our window on the world.

Castle is pleased to announce completion of a multi-million pound acquisition of a specialist manufacturer of medical equipment from a US listed group.  Castle was lead adviser throughout the engagement, negotiating with the US listed parent, fund raising and managing the transaction through to completion.

Our client and new Managing Director said: “Castle helped guide us through the many challenges that were faced throughout the transaction, being positive, proactive and commercial throughout the process which altered course on numerous occasions.

This was a major deal for us, acquiring from a global player with huge firepower. Castle proved to be highly capable advisers, with depth and breadth of experience, and an unswerving commitment to achieve a successful outcome.

We would highly recommend Castle to anyone looking to go through the same process.”

Stuart Stepney, director at Castle, added: “For legal reasons, we are unable to disclose full details of this transaction.  The deal began as a private equity buy out from a US PLC but changed numerous times during the course of our engagement and required careful project management to ensure it completed on 2 January 2019.  Our client was eventually able to conclude the deal using a combination of family money and vendor loan notes, thus preserving the equity for the new family owners and the generations to come.  It was a great pleasure to work on the deal and we wish the very best to all in the future.”
