Sold STC: Fire & Security Installation & Maintenance Business

Anderson Shaw Corporate Finance Ltd exclusively offers for sale an established and substantial business, providing fire & security services in The Midlands and nationally. The business focuses on the larger corporate client and this policy is reflected in a client list typical of a much larger organisation. Located in the Midlands, it employs in excess of 20 staff and additional subcontractors as required. Staff turnover is low and an experienced team capable of running the business is in place. The vendor is amenable to  a part-time business development consultancy role post sale.

Revenue is derived from fire related products (c 60%), followed by CCTV related (30%) and finally access related (10%). Increasingly however, projects are multi-faceted, delivering an integrated system incorporating all security and fire requirements, supporting large commercial new build infrastructure projects, spanning most industry sectors, including manufacturing, wholesale & distribution, construction, automotive and retail. Recurring service and maintenance work is relatively low, predominantly because it doesn’t receive the focus that it should and this represents an opportunity to new buyers. 

Positioned as an expert in its field, the company continues to grow rapidly (25%+ in the current year) with a forecast revenue this year in excess of just under £XM, delivering an adjusted EBITDA of in excess of £X.XM.

The Guide Price sought by the Vendors for 100% of the shares of the business is £X.XXM.  The business will be sold on a debt free, cash free basis to include a Balance Sheet at completion with Net Asset Value expected to be c. £XM.   The business will be an attractive acquisition as a bolt-on for larger trade buyers or stand alone opportunity for high net worth individuals or small private equity groups who can bring additional management expertise to bear to manage the growth opportunities.
