Springboard advised on 21 deals in 2019 with 12 sales and 9 acquisitions. Notable transactions included the sale of international clinical trials provider Medinova to Nasdaq quoted ICON whilst Swedish acquirers featured on two other high profile sales – Redspeed International and Natgraph. Closer to home the firm advised the shareholders of Parking Facilities, Southall Associates and Thomas Fudge’s on their strategic sales to UK trade acquirors.

Springboard continued its support of acquisitive buy and build platforms; supporting Sykes Holiday Cottages on five acquisitions and Sovereign Capital backed Bristow and Sutor on its purchase of Credit Style.

Springboard Partner Simon Ward said

“We are delighted that 2020 has already seen us complete two deals in January. This builds on the great momentum built over 2019 when we were privileged to work with some fantastic clients. Our ability to access strategic acquirors both overseas and in the UK was a particular feature whilst around half of our deals involved private equity. Our pipeline of opportunities remains strong and we look forward to the 2020 with real optimism.”
