We appointed Bracebridge Corporate Finance to manage the sale process for Aktrion Group, one of our portfolio companies. Andy explored various exit options with us and handled the negotiations with a South African purchaser. He provided a very hands-on service, project managing the entire process and driving the timetable through to completion and was always available when needed. Andy is a very experienced advisor and we would not hesitate in recommending him to advise on a sale process.

quotes

In my role as founder and builder of a UK based medical device company I relied upon Andy Moore to provide advice, analysis and market knowledge as we built our company through acquisition and integration. A thorough, ethical and analytical man , Andy quickly grasped our strategic plan and used his work ethic and unique deal making skills to add considerable value. Oriented solely towards his clients interests, the best advice he ever gave me was to not purchase a troubled competitor as in his view it was a ” bridge too far” given our integration resources. A bitter pill to swallow at the time he turned out to be correct. When it came time to sell our business I turned again to Andy who in a professional manner expedited the successful transaction. I recommend Andy and his services to any company, large or small, who want or need advice about uk capital markets and appropriate strategies to grow their enterprise.

quotes

Andy Moore has provided professional guidance to me and my organisation on a number of occasions and over a number of years. It is evident that he is fully committed to the principle of establishing long term and trusting client relationships. He works hard to understand the organisation’s goals and aspirations and his professional know-how and integrity means he soon becomes seen as a valued member of the team. He is well able to reflect the business interests when representing the company in external discussions and the strength of his credibility is such that he can also manage and realign internal expectations, particularly if they are running ahead of likely outcomes.

Andy is an extremely personable individual who possesses a strong work ethic. He delivers results and I am pleased to recommend his services to your organisation.

quotes

Andy is a very experienced Corporate Finance professional who I have known for many years. Whilst I was CEO of Femcare Group, Andy, in his previous role, provided invaluable support to help develop our exit strategy and under his leadership, and a challenging mandate, Femcare was successfully sold to a US trade buyer to the mutual satisfaction of all parties including the lead investor Barclays Private Equity (now Equistone). I have no hesitation in recommending Bracebridge Corporate Finance

quotes

My business partner and I had both just reached retirement age. We had created a management structure for our succession and the time was now right to seek an exit. I met with three Corporate Finance Advisers and although the standard was extremely high, I felt we would have more of a personal “hands on” approach from Andy Moore of Bracebridge Corporate Finance. This proved to be the case and Andy completed a successful sale process and achieved an excellent result for the shareholders within 4 months which was an exceptional performance. From my experience, I would highly recommend Andy Moore.
