Rostance Edwards have acted on our behalf for a period of 4 years and have assisted in doing due diligence on acquisitions on several retail pharmacies. They have played a front line role in raising additional finance both for the acquisitions and for working capital requirements.
Rostance Edwards assisted with negotiations for a management buyout from an AIM listed PLC. They provided financial due diligence and assistance with raising working capital, producing business plans and cash flow forecasts.
Rostance Edwards assisted in the formation of our business some 30 years ago, produced management accounts and annual accounts and regularly provided guidance on all financial matters, enabling our business to successfully trade for a number of years. They provided advice on the retirement of the elder brother and worked with us to establish our own pension fund, which is now providing the shareholders with a substantial return, and are now assisting in the disposal of the remaining assets of the business.
We were introduced to Rostance Edwards as a small subcontractor turning over less than £100k. This year through our group of Companies we will be turning over £15m. We would not have been able to do this without the constant support and top class service of Rostance Edwards.
We had a problem in terms of succession planning and Rostance Edwards found the solution and guided us through an MBO, which concluded in a tax-efficient exit of one of our shareholders and left a perfect structure of our companies moving forward and continuing our success.
Rostance Edwards located a purchaser for our company and guided us through the initial stages of sale. Unfortunately at this stage one of our customers took us for over £0.5m leaving the company in a precarious position from a cashflow prospective. Rostance Edwards took away the pressure and guided us through a stressful time that many companies won’t experience. Their professional approach has allowed the company to flourish again and also keep the opportunity of a sale alive.
Rostance Edwards dealt with the successful application of a government grant which enabled us to purchase bigger premises, recruit more staff and grow the business. They also helped us set the business up using a structure which protected our assets and streamlined our operations.
