“Our first meeting with Axis filled ourselves with confidence”

My business partner and I built and ran a complex care organisation over a period of eleven years that specialised in supporting people with Complex Presentations. Following the ever increasing need for this service and the need for expansion, my business partner and myself made the difficult decision to market the organisation. Our hope was to find a national organisation with the necessary skills and infrastructure that could support this expansion. Following meetings with various National Agents looking at marketing our Business, we became quite despondent with the lack of knowledge by these agents of the specialist service we were operating.

Our first meeting with Axis filled ourselves with confidence, in the way they were able to demonstrate a strong understanding of our service and more importantly the type of buyers who would be interested in acquiring our service and expanding it further. From the outset Axis’s approach was very refreshing looking at how they can support us, rather than selling us a service.

From early discussions with Axis they identified a national company that they felt our service compared with. Their knowledge of the care market, business networks and contacts were evident in that the first party they introduced to our business, later purchased the organisation. Axis not only helped us find an organisation that would develop and nurture our service further but they also helped to negotiate the price we wanted for the service. Axis were instrumental in streamlining this complicated process from start to finish within 6 months.

Shaun Russell was instrumental through the whole sale process, using his expertise to support us and our accountant through the complicated due diligence process. Shaun was very involved through every aspect of the sale and helped maintain strong communication and a good business relationship between ourselves and the purchaser, spending considerable time liaising with accountants and solicitors on both sides.

I cannot recommend Axis enough, a first class professional service run by people with vast experience and contacts within the sector.
