“Very glad to have come to your seminar in London years ago… it would have been impossible without expert support like yours!”
Prism Corporate Broking presented a fantastic opportunity for us to substantially expand our customer base, and largely within our existing operational area. We have always had an exemplary reputation with our clients but winning new business is always difficult when you are perceived as being relatively small. This acquisition takes OHC to a size where larger, high quality potential clients will feel confident that we have the resources and gravitas to supply services to them."
Our strength lies in our focus and commitment to our defined processes and principles plus determination. We like to work with like-minded organisations and that’s why we chose to work with Prism Corporate Broking, we felt they had similar business ethics to us with a focussed attitude toward assignments and with great experience under their belts. The deals progressed as we hoped, smoothly and relatively quickly.
We worked with Prism over a couple of years to sell our software business. We found Prism, and Peter Watson, one of their directors of corporate finance to be first class. Peter understood the value drivers (both business and technology) and was able to give specific and occasionally uncomfortable advice to help us to maximise the sale value. He also managed the due diligence process and ultimately met a very tight timetable with regard to completion. We were delighted with the result and would be very pleased to recommend Prism to others.
We are delighted with the outcome. One can never appreciate at the outset quite how much work goes into a sale process – and the challenges thrown up along the way. We sincerely thank Prism for their sage guidance and tenacity throughout.
We’ve enjoyed working with you and thank you for your help in bringing the sale to a successful conclusion.
Prism provided practical advice and counselling on the sales process and procedures, ensuring we never felt alone or without the necessary experience to step through the sale. I believe that adding Prism to our team very early in our decision making process ultimately produced outstanding value for the shareholders. A job well done.
What impressed us about Prism from the outset was their ability to ask the challenging questions which we knew should be asked by prospective buyers and to properly understand our highly technical business. They were professional throughout and a pleasure to work with. We are very satisfied with the result.
The Prism team worked with us successfully to help maximise value. They understood the market and the value that we could bring to an acquirer. They ensured momentum was maintained and secured a deal value and structure that ticked every box. We also really enjoyed working with them. Would we use them again? Absolutely.
"We are delighted with the outcome Prism has achieved for us. Sure, at one point we were a little concerned that the marketplace might not allow the sale to take place, however with Prism’s perseverance and professionalism they met our objectives and we cannot thank them enough."
"Just a quick note to add my personal thanks for your recent efforts in selling our telephony business, I appreciate it was not an easy sale and it is clear you worked very hard to find and secure a successful outcome. Many thanks indeed."
"We are delighted with our first acquisition. Hosted Revolution fits well within our current product and service offering. As well as inheriting a large pool of contract based customers, we are delighted to welcome the excellent business development and support team to Connect. We are now actively looking for new IT businesses to acquire to accelerate our growth at a faster rate."
"Prism called the market just right in terms of when to sell – we could have gone to market at a different time but Prism saw a market opportunity and we went for it and were successful. Would certainly recommend them."
"Prism’s involvement was invaluable – not only during the sale process but in the period prior to going to market too. I commend your business model and the very professional way you approach transactions which became very evident from the outset with the preparation of an excellent and comprehensive Information Memorandum."
