  • Amit Hindocha, Investment Director at Mobeus Equity Partners, commented:

    “I've worked with WKCF on a number of transactions. What I like about their FDD offering is that it's not a one-size fits all approach. The report was concise and addressed the key areas succinctly.”

  • Ryan Kroonenburg, Co-founder of A Cloud Guru, commented:

    "Andy and the team at WKCF helped us secure the best possible deal with Elephant and oversaw a smooth process through to completion."

  • John Lowe, Managing Director at Plastique, commented:

    “Andy has advised us since the original MBO in 2008, including the BGF investment in 2014 and through to the sale to TEQ. His advice throughout has been invaluable and we are delighted that TEQ have retained him to continue to work with us into the future.”

  • Jonathan Stein, Partner at Cortec Group, commented:

    “I am sure there is no way this transaction would have happened without you. As a buyer of entrepreneurial companies, we see all kinds of intermediaries, and often all kinds of chaos. You were extremely professional and organised every step of the way and served your client very well.”

  • John Lowe, Managing Director of Plastique, commented:

    "We have enjoyed a long standing relationship with WK across a number of fronts. Andy and his team worked with us during the MBO process successfully concluding that deal. When we wanted to look at potential outside investment in the business to further our personal and business goals Andy and the WKCF team were again on hand to introduce us to the Business Growth Fund and guide Plastique through the entire process."

  • Amy Crofton, Investment Manager at Foresight, commented:

    "We chose WK Corporate Finance as our Financial Due Diligence partner to their depth of expertise in the asset backed lending sector, which was critical to understanding the unique business model and bespoke lending practices of Reward Finance Group. Dan Nixon and his team demonstrated high quality project management, delivering an insightful report to a tight timetable. They were a pleasure to deal with and I look forward to working with them again in the future."

  • Paul Heaney, Founder at TCB Media Rights, commented:

    “We are delighted to be partnering with Kew Media Group. As we strategized with WKCF on how best to elevate TCB to the next level, it was quickly apparent that Kew fitted the bill. With its established distribution footprint, growing stable of production entities, heavyweight management team and access to capital markets, we believe we have found the perfect partner to assist us as we continue to build scale in the international distribution business.”

  • Ron Hepburn, Managing Director at Stevenswood, commented:

    “We could not have done this deal were it not for the input of the guys at WKCF. They prepared our business plan for us and negotiated the best terms for the deal. Their help was invaluable.”

  • Martin Couslon, Director at Atomwide, commented:

    "Andy and the team at WKCF were great to work with on the entire process, from the initial production of the Information Memorandum, through to the various discussions with the many interested parties that they introduced to us, to the final deal that was agreed with Adept. They took time to really understand us and our Company and led the sale in a very professional, but friendly way. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone else considering a sale of business."

  • Jamie Roberts, Investment Director at YFM Equity Partners, commented:

    “We have worked with WKCF in a transaction support capacity across a variety of deals in the recent past. The consistent quality of the financial due diligence and advisory services they provide, as again evidenced in this transaction with ACC Aviation, has established WKCF as one of our key advisory partners."

  • Barry Robins, Managing Director of Flowline Limited, commented:

    “The WKCF team led by Dan Nixon were an integral part of this deal process. Their expertise and professionalism was an obvious attribute from the outset so I was never in doubt that this would be a success."

  • Melanie Goward, Investment Director at Maven, commented:

    “WKCF deliver a high quality, commercially focused and efficient due diligence service. Their input has been invaluable and I look forward to working with the team again on future investments.”

  • Conor Dignam, Managing Director of MBI, commented:

    “Andy Coghlan from WKCF assisted the team in their negotiations with Mobeus, clearly explaining the funding structure and guiding us through the investment process.”

  • Julian Samuelson, Managing Director of Bell Equine, commented:

    "WK Corporate Finance advised us on the sale of our business to a much larger company that specialises in acquisitions. WKCF provided us with the support, knowledge and pragmatic advice that we required to be able to sense check the more difficult decisions we were required to make during the negotiation."

  • Mark Wood, Chairman of Knowledgemotion, commented:

    “We were extremely impressed with WKCF on this transaction. Dane and Adam ran a smooth and efficient process. They introduced us to a number of relevant investors and negotiated excellent investment terms on our behalf - when it came down to decision time, I have to say that we were spoilt for choice. We will be enlisting their services again as we continue to focus on growing our business.”
