M&A advisory

Pragmatic, bespoke advice with a hands-on approach

Whether you are selling your business or buying another one, we’ll guide you through the entire process. Our approach is always proactive and focused on helping you achieve your strategic goals.

The M&A process is complex, and no two transactions are ever identical. This makes FRP’s independence and objectivity a powerful asset – we have the freedom to create solutions that work for you.

We start by understanding your business and what you want to achieve. By investing time and energy upfront, our team works in partnership with you to prepare your business for sale or identify targets to buy.

Our highly experienced M&A team has specialist expertise acting for lower and mid-market enterprises across a breadth of sectors. We have built a strong network of national and international buyers and sellers of all sizes.

What makes us different is our comprehensive approach. We prepare high quality marketing information and approach buyers, provide strategically considered advice on valuations, negotiate with buyers and manage the whole due diligence process. In short, we provide trust, expertise and insight at every stage of the M&A process, helping you take full advantage of every opportunity.

Although every situation is unique, our focus is always on delivering the right outcome. Matthew Flower Corporate Finance
