Shaw & Co’s latest deals have seen it surpass a major milestone – the completion of over £0.5bn worth of business transactions since the company’s inception in 2011.
The Bristol-based corporate finance advisor, which helps SME owners across the UK to buy, sell, or fund the growth of a business, broke through the target thanks to the recent sale of Ecosurety’s Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and Batteries compliance schemes to sustainability, technology, data and services experts Reconomy, and the sale of Wiltshire-based accounting software business Data Interconnect to global digital finance transformation leader BlackLine.
Founded by Jim Shaw towards the end of 2011, Shaw & Co has been involved in a range of notable deals, including some of the most significant seen in the South West. These include the sales of Pukka Herbs to Unilever, GoProposal to Sage, Senta to IRIS, Canopy Simulations to Michelin and Vouchercloud to Groupon.
The company has also helped many businesses find the right funding to support their growth, such as CatSci, a highly innovative spin-out from AstraZeneca which received significant equity investment from Paris-based Keensight Capital, and microchip designer Ensilica, which used debt funding to help create a platform for an IPO.
The next stage for Shaw & Co will be the expansion of its footprint across the UK, from its Bristol headquarters into four further strategic locations - Birmingham, London, Manchester and Glasgow.
Jim Shaw, Founder and CEO at Shaw & Co commented: “Over the years we have worked extremely hard to demystify the complexity of corporate finance so more business owners and SMEs can achieve their ambitions and realise their company’s maximum value.
“This hugely significant milestone is made up of many, many transactions and clearly demonstrates the success of our unique approach, an approach that has seen us working with some of the world’s biggest brands and most innovative SMEs.”
