Reid Green & Co specialises in acquiring and realising value in London based off-market companies facing distressed and complex situations.
We invest in companies which private equity and corporate buyers tend to avoid or are unaware of due to being too small, not being actively marketed for sale or where there is significant time pressure to complete a transaction.
We focus on companies with £600,000 to £5million in annual sales
Profit and Debt
Companies must be debt free and profitable (Excluding turnarounds)
Turnaround - We can work with underperforming companies requiring turnaround due to non-sales related issues, cash-flow problems, creditor pressure or financial distress
Partnering - We can partner with owners and entrepreneurs who wish to position their business for a sale, wants to improve profit and cash generation or is seeking to grow via mergers or acquisitions
Buyouts - We can acquire companies from owners who wish to retire and have no succession plan in place, or from shareholders who wish exit due to disputes or conflicts, other commitments. We will only consider companies with day to day management and where the company is not listed with a broker.
Our transactions structures can include ordinary shares, loan notes, preference shares
We will consider minority, majority and outright acquisitions
We currently focus on companies based in London
We prefer companies with 10 or more staff (Will consider less case by case)
We are broadly sector agnostic, but focus on business services, media services, and industrial services, and generally won't consider physical retail.
We will look at companies with up to 4 shareholders, preferring 1 or 2
As we have due diligence capabilities and prepare all legal paperwork in-house we can complete transactions in 30 days or less
