Established in 2003, Prism is much more than just a ‘matchmaker’.
The expert team provides extensive advice and guidance throughout the entire business sale or acquisition process. We ensure our M&A services are thorough, personal, and completely tailored to you and your business objectives. Our clients like the way we work.
"Prism are an intrinsic part of our acquisition team. To date, we have acquired seven businesses. Our experience is that you always want to have them on your side of the negotiation and feel lucky we do."
"Without Robert’s help there was no way we could have achieved the sale alone. There were so many more aspects to consider and address than we could have ever imagined – many of which were totally beyond our abilities to do alone.”
“Prism were knowledgeable, super-professional, impressive and wonderful to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is planning to sell their business.”
“We have had an association with Prism for over ten years where they have successfully guided us through two acquisitions and ultimately the sale of our business. They proved to be an extremely useful intermediary."
"The Prism team guided and supported both management teams through a valuation process and ultimately a successful merger. Peter’s straightforward approach, sage advice and on-going help greatly supported our first corporate transaction.”
“Prism did a great job. I enjoyed working with them and they delivered for me. Prism were prepared to roll up their sleeves and get stuff done when it was needed.”
“Very glad to have come to your seminar in London, which was practical with a lot of insight. Then using you to sell my business was the right choice. It would have been impossible without your expert support and guidance!”
"It started with a very smooth engagement and throughout the sale process there was great communication, clear structure and definite value added by them. We worked well as a team and that chemistry was very important to me.”
“I’ve been involved in a lot of M&A transactions and I have to say that working with Prism on our transaction was the smoothest of any I’ve been involved in. The process itself was very well run, very well managed, it was very smooth and very efficient.”
"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 are seasoned professionals, with relevant experience both inside and outside the advisory sector and having completed more than 150 deals over the last 20 years, most of those in the technology sector.
