Provantage were always there, whatever time of day with the right advice and guidance. Even when they were tied up, they responded as soon as practically possible. Their meticulousness was admirable… data and spreadsheets were always top notch and incredibly well thought out for understanding and readability which made my life so much easier. I’m going to miss the daily interactions with the team.

This is an exciting point in Modern Networks Journey I am looking forward to working with the Horizon Capital team in accelerating the successful growth of the business. I would like to thank the Provantage team for their advice I couldn’t be more impressed with their dedication and professionalism

Matthew Reeve, CEO & Founder

Modern Networks

The Board and shareholders of W.Westerman Ltd would like to express their thanks to the Provantage Team with their support  for the disposal of  high value historic assets, in a transaction that has been recognised on all sides as being exceptionally smooth and professional, in spite of the quantity of assets comprised in the disposal

Robert Westerman, Managing Director

Westerman Homes

Provantage Corporate Finance provided invaluable independent advice in examining a range of options for the future of the company and subsequently in dealing with some of the details of the transaction with Egis. I really felt that they had my best interests at heart at every stage

Dan Galson, Managing Director & Founder

Galson Sciences

We could not have got through the process of selling our business without the amazing support, patience and professional diligence of all of our advisors. The team at Provantage were amazing throughout. Clearly, they have the Corporate Finance skills necessary to lead on a transaction like this but more importantly, Provantage’s ability to understand the business they are selling, lead on the interaction with Halma plc and coordinate this project was a key element of getting this deal done successfully. Provantage also managed to keep us all focused on the right priorities, and calm, during what is a very stressful experience. I would personally recommend Provantage if you are ever thinking about selling your business

Andy Hicks, Managing Director

Ramtech Electronics

I was very impressed with the Provantage team throughout the whole transaction and in particular, with their total focus on acting in my and my family’s best interests – this never felt like just another transaction that needed to get done at all costs and I was always confident of clear balanced and unfettered advice – they really were with me every step of the way

Provantage help make the process as smooth as possible with a commercial and practical approach – their experience and entrepreneurial spirit really shone through when the inevitable deal issues did arise

I was initially quite cynical about the value of corporate finance advice in my particular circumstances but having experienced first hand the value added, I would urge any business owner to engage Provantage regardless of the status of their transaction

Jason Geary, Managing Director

Geary's Bakery

I can’t thank Provantage enough. They have been a pleasure to work with, and their dedication, diligence, and expertise have made the transaction run smoothly resulting in a great outcome for all

John Norman, co-founder

Prima Solutions

The entire team at Provantage were outstanding from start to finish. Without them, the deal simply would not have happened. As advisors on all the key aspects of the transaction, they were with me every step of the way from start to finish. I was particularly impressed with their accessibility at any time of the day or night, their ability to find solutions in challenging circumstances, and their tenacity and drive to get us to the finishing line. Their empathy, expertise and focus on relationships meant they were able to inspire me with total confidence. Their expertise was also coupled with a genuinely caring approach to the pressures the team were under during the process, and this was of great comfort when the inevitable challenges occurred.  I cannot recommend them highly enough
