M&A


Green Square provides corporate finance advice to the shareholders of independent media and marketing communications businesses. We typically advise businesses with enterprise values ranging from £10m to £50m. Specifically, our M&A focus is on the following transaction scenarios:
  • Trade sales
  • Private equity backed disposals
  • Management buy-outs
We act predominantly for vendors so our ability to give independent advice is never compromised. Our remuneration structure is designed such that we are fully motivated to drive the most rewarding deal for shareholders.
 
We have strong M&A experience, having advised on numerous successful transactions, which gives us a rounded understanding of what makes a business an attractive investment opportunity and how best to structure and negotiate the optimal transaction.
 
Our exclusive focus on the media and marketing communications sector means we have an excellent knowledge of the global buyer landscape, both from previous transactions and from our ongoing research and networking.


 

Ascension Day


This is a one-day workshop which helps shareholders and management identify key actions to improve the performance and value of their business. It is a very effective way to formulate a plan to drive the next stage of a company’s development and maximise value.

Following a desktop review of relevant information supplied in advance, the workshop consists a presentation of Green Square’s assessment, supplemented by discussions with management along the lines of the value drivers acquirers look for in a business and understanding personal aspirations. The output of the day is an agreed set of actions to enhance growth and business value.
 
 
 

Testimonials


James Wilkins, We Are Vista: “Green Square are a class apart. Their professionalism, experience, advisory and negotiating skills combined with their genuine sense of care, interest and goodwill makes them a clear partner of choice. I can’t speak highly enough of them both professionally and personally. Taking your business to market is a difficult and very personal thing to do and I don’t think you can have better by your side than Green Square when you are going through it. I simply think they are the best out there and have the ability to make you smile as well.”

Steve Sowden, Intermarketing: “We've worked with Green Square for the last four years and we couldn't have achieved what we have done without their relentless dedication, consistent support and in-depth industry knowledge. From an Ascension Day to our acquisition and everything in between, they have helped us structure and develop our business not just for sale but for the future too.”
