Prism Corporate Broking is an award-winning corporate finance and broking boutique that specialises in Buying and Selling Technology Businesses. Prism advises clients on every aspect of buying or selling from essential pre-sale advice or acquisition preparation through to successful deal completion.
The Prism approach is refreshingly different and very successful.
We are technology sector specialists, predominantly working with UK clients but often seeking overseas buyers. Our knowledge of the market and extensive contacts ensures that we can identify and engage with targets looking to acquire or sell. Our dedicated and specialist team tailors each assignment to suit clients’ individual businesses and more importantly, their personal objectives. All assignments are Director led (not delegated) and our highly contingent fee model incentivises success.
In order to achieve greatest impact we would encourage you to engage with us at an early stage. This will present greatest scope to advise you on sale or acquisition options and readiness, and will help to build value.
Our aim is to ensure you make the right decisions at the right time. Typically we work on transactions involving technology businesses within a £1m to £30m turnover range (though the vendor or acquirer can be substantially larger than this).
We are not volume players; this enables us to deliver a highly personalised service, uniquely tailored towards individual needs and objectives. Our business ethic is strong, trusted, honest and open — telling you what you need to know, not just what we think you might want to hear.
Prism is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA); therefore we can also advise on minority investments/divestments.
“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.
Prism Corporate Broking comprises a team of M&A specialists with years of experience working with owners of private companies, helping them to buy and sell businesses. Having worked across a variety of sectors over the years we are able to reach further than the technology sector if required.
