Green Square provides corporate finance advice to shareholders of independent media, marketing communications and marketing technology businesses. We typically advise companies with enterprise values ranging from £10m to £50m.
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.
Business leaders need confidential guidance, support and focused inspiration. Someone to brainstorm and plan with, but also be challenged by. A place where they can get independent and experienced input to some of the tough decisions and strategies that determine their company’s future. Without someone who ‘gets it’, an owner can miss opportunities or simply waste time going round in circles.
We're exceptionally thorough and professional. But we're not cold fish.
Our advice is always carefully considered, well researched and has the benefits of our collective experience. We stay up to date with the latest industry trends and understand our clients' businesses in depth.
We bring enthusiasm and a spark to everything we do. We provide lighter moments and the odd flash of genius.
We like and respect our clients. This is reflected in the strong relationships that we build with them. Most importantly, we always act in their best interests, providing them with a balanced assessment on their options.
And this is why the vast majority of our business is referred.
We met the team at Green Square 5 years ago. They really understood our business and have been instrumental in giving us the guidance and support to shape it into something that became highly sought after and respected by a number of acquirers. Of the many we spoke to, there was a clear fit with imc on both the compliance and medcomms side, and Green Square negotiated a transaction for us which achieved all our goals. If you’re ever wondering who to use in the world of M&A, there’s no-one better than these guys."Tina Patel

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. You’ve been true pro's, a rock, stable, reliable support. You’ve also become trusted friends. You kept on believing when we maybe had our moments of doubt. It’s a skill what you guys do and you’re bloody good at it. Thanks for believing (or faking it when you didn’t). MASSIVE RESPECT. We couldn’t have done it without you (or your incredible patience!). Thank you for the calm advice over such a long time. Thank you again for your incredible hard work and resilience to get us there in the end.”Jez Nelson and Steve Ackerman
Being part of STRAT7 gives us the opportunity to scale our own proposition, bring greater value to our clients, offer exciting new opportunities to our people, and expand our business. We will gain access to STRAT7's extensive range of technology-powered data and insight solutions, their fantastic client base, and their global capabilities. It’s probably a cliché, but we couldn’t have done this without Green Square. They understood Rainmakers from the start - not just what we do but where the magic and real value lies within the business. They articulated our proposition and positioning very clearly, which meant that we attracted interest from the right kinds of potential partners and have found an excellent new home in STRAT7. Green Square supported us at every stage of the process, from developing an initial strategy right through to completion. They worked seamlessly with our lawyers, TLT, and our accountants, Alvis, and that was critical to getting us to the right outcome. Above all, Green Square’s approach is very human. It has always been important to us that the decisions we made worked for the owners as individuals and for our employees and clients, and Green Square have enabled us to achieve this.”Colin Buckingham
