"I was looking for funds for a management buyout. My employer the sole owner of the company was looking to retire and asked if I would be prepared to acquire his shares. I had worked for the company for over 10 years and it seemed like a natural progression. I had gone down the path of approaching the high street banks directly. However funds for this sort of acquisition are not straightforward. I needed a company to approach funders on my behalf and have the ability to communicate on their level. I approached MC Vanguard and Jerry Scriven because I needed advice on potential ways of funding this type of management buyout. Jerry had been recommended to me by a colleague and he did not disappoint.
In the first meeting I felt at ease as he explained the process of what was needed and also the time frame we would work towards. Jerry explained the pitfalls of such deals as well as the positive aspects. No stone was left unturned and he and his team quickly assessed projections and put a business plan into place that could be easily dissected by potential funders.
The one thing I liked from the start was their approachable but professional attitude. But the real value I found was that they helped oil the cogs in regard to dealing with the legalities of such a deal, and further negotiation with the vendors.
The result was I had a deal in principle within the first month and the deal was signed off a couple of months later.
I would have no hesitation in recommending MC Vanguard and Jerry Scriven. Their approach was straight forward and personable from the onset of what can be a daunting process."

"After 130 successful years of trading in the animal feeds manufacturing sector we felt the time had come to find a new direction for our company. Being a highly respected, family-run business it was crucial that we found a partner to work with who had a true appreciation of the heritage, values, and dedication to quality and personal service that has been our bedrock.
We sought advice from the MC Vanguard team who clearly understood our values and objectives. They found such a partner and negotiated a deal that provided an exit for the shareholders who wanted to retire, and a tremendous opportunity for us as the current directors to enhance the business and drive it forward as part of a larger, family-run group.
We are now looking forward to an exciting new era, both for us and the business, and we could not have achieved this without the support and advice from the MC Vanguard team."

"When we decided to sell our company, our bank manager introduced us to MC Vanguard. From the very first meeting they led us through the sale process, identified a range of potential buyers and negotiated a deal with the eventual buyer which fully met our objectives. We are convinced that we could not have achieved this value without the support of the MC Vanguard team's market knowledge and process."
- Gage Engineering Limited
"As a privately owned business, it was always our desire to pass the business on to the management team. Vanguard worked with us in the years leading up to the MBO to help prepare the business and then led completion of the transaction, which delivered our personal objectives and enabled the management team to take the business forward.
We could not have achieved these objectives without the expert experience and commitment of the MC Vanguard Team."
