CHILDREN'S SERVICES BUSINESS BROKER
Brokerage services for children's
home and SEN school owners
Our team has significant experience working on the buy-side for children's services corporates, giving us a unique insight into how corporate acquirers approach transactions, including:
a deep understanding of the current market and how to correctly present your business to maximise value
the ability to model and value your business accurately, in addition to pre-empting diligence issues and avoiding common pitfalls when selling to corporates
We are not a high-volume agency - this allows us to spend more time producing higher-quality, tailored marketing materials and provide a greater level of support throughout the sale process
Our experience advising on varied and complex deals of up to £100m gives us significant expertise in running smooth and efficient processes, ensuring that value is protected through to completion of the transaction
We protect confidentiality - all of our deals are delivered "off-market", identifying buyers through market research rather than online listings
Our fees are transparent, directly linked to the valuation achieved, and only payable upon the successful completion of a transaction
The UK children's services sector continues to see significant consolidation, driven by a number of private equity-backed operators deploying buy-and-build strategies. Both residential children's homes and SEN day schools have been particularly sought after.
If you are considering selling your children's services business, the Eclipse team can support you in maximising value whilst delivering a smooth and efficient process. We have advised on deals with a range of corporates, giving us an in depth understanding of the way in which acquirers of this nature approach transactions, and the ways to maximise and protect value for selling shareholders.
As chartered accountants with significant investment banking experience, we differentiate ourselves from other agents by taking a hands on, end-to-end approach to ensure the optimum outcome for our clients.
