"At a time of uncertainty in the debt and commodities markets, the team from Gambit Corporate Finance provided us with the highest quality of professional financial assistance, advice and guidance. Through their extensive debt market relationships, Gambit was able to introduce us to funders that are clearly focused on helping us achieve our goals as a business, and their ongoing advice was essential in ensuring a successful outcome to the transaction."
Terry Coates, Managing Director
Standard Brands (UK) Limited
"Gambit acted as lead advisor on Vista’s management buy-out. Gambit diligently managed the whole process from negotiations with the vendor through to fundraising and legal completion. Throughout the transaction, they were very proactive and commercially focused, and developed creative solutions to the obstacles we encountered."
Brian Norman, Managing Director
Vista Support Services Group Limited
"Gambit demonstrated an extensive knowledge of our sector, which allowed them to create a highly competitive disposal process. The transaction was completed in a very tight timescale, at a price which significantly exceeded our expectations. They are very commercial, proactive and focussed on customer service. I would definitely recommend them"
Paul Ragan, Managing Director
"Gambit acted as lead adviser on Bluestone’s new generation holiday village and were instrumental in sourcing, negotiating and securing all financial aspects of the £110million project with both private and public sectors. Gambit’s involvement with Bluestone over a six year period was testament to their loyalty, tenacity and professionalism – they are a great team".
William McNamara, Chief Executive
Bluestone Leisure Limited
"This acquisition transaction represents another positive and successful milestone in our relationship with Gambit. As one of our key strategic business partners, Gambit continues to deliver significant value to our business. This was a challenging transaction on many levels and Gambit’s effective and professional service delivery and guidance was critical in achieving a very successful conclusion."
Gareth Kempson, Managing Director
"We were undecided about committing to investing and growing the Company to take it to the next stage of development or to embark on a sales process. We had been approached but the potential purchaser had been slow to proceed and momentum had been lost. We brought in Gambit who examined the situation and persuaded us to go wider into the market to assess interest and to generate a competitive process. The timing and outcome of the sale was a great result for all stakeholders."
