Accident & Risk Management

Retirement sale of a regional health and safety consultancy.




BUYER:  Southall & Associates Ltd

Our client had been running East Midlands based health and safety consultancy Accident & Risk Management for more than 10 years, and had reached the point at which he was ready to retire. The company had a broad spread of contracted clients ranging from local private companies to national public sector institutions. We felt from the start that the business would be a good fit with another established health and safety practice, and recommended a professional managed search, plus advertising in a suitable magazine for the profession.

Selling Private Companies made contact with health and safety companies throughout the Midlands and South East approaching more than 150 potential buyers in the process. Of these twenty three companies signed our confidentiality agreement and took full details on the company. Eight companies went on to meet with the sellers, and four of these made viable offers.

Our client was clear from the start that the eventual buyer must share his own approach to health and safety management, and quickly identified Birmingham based Southall & Associates as the best home for his customers. The sale completed in a little under four months.
