Record year for Wilkes Deal Team

2015 has been a record year for the Deals Team at The Wilkes Partnership.

The Team has completed over 50 significant transactions including a £m (confidential) secondary buyout of the Engineering Technology Group (backed by Santander), the BGF Investments in PPS Equipment Holdings and APSU, the management buyout of Lee Longland and a host of other transactions.  In addition, the Team have advised on a number of sizeable reorganisations including the multimillion pound demerger of Benx Limited.

Gareth O’Hara, Head of the Team, said, “There is no doubt that the M&A mid-market has picked up markedly in 2015. The last 12 months has been our best ever performance. Our recent track record demonstrates that we are a first choice for mid-market mergers and acquisitions or corporate finance transactions.”

The Team also advised on a number of banking matters for ABN Amro, The Wesleyan, Lloyds Bank and others.

Rick Smyth, partner, noted, “The Team has won a number of high value new instructions for a range of transactions and we look forward to expanding the team in 2016”
