" We engaged Anderson Shaw to provide business and share valuations as part of developing a new company incentive scheme. It was all new to us, but Peter and his team clearly explained each step of the process and worked closely with ourselves and our legal team. They also gave us some great ideas about a number of other opportunities, which was extremely helpful. They were responsive and very easy to work with. I would certainly recommend and would engage them again in the future"

"Peter and Anderson Shaw assisted greatly with their professional approach and advice from the onset of our relationship. They took great care and displayed impressive attention to detail in assisting me with my requirements and producing a thorough and well-presented sales briefing document. As soon as my business was advertised, we had numerous enquiries. Good advice was also given before meetings with prospective buyers and AS were thoroughly professional in following up with them thereafter. I would recommend them".  Business owner, Professional services company dealing with large, high profile clients.

Richard Anderson emphasised from Day 1 the importance of producing a high quality Sales Memorandum and worked closely with the management team to optimise the format and content.  His advice and experience proved invaluable and the upfront effort paid dividends, allowing us to hit the right target audience and have a well-prepared Data Room.

Anderson Shaw handled the sale of my business recently, and I highly recommend this company's services. The sale was a particularly challenging one, I think it's true to say and the business 'model' was slightly unusual. However, from the start Richard provided first class support and advice. He ensured that the initial sales details were well drafted and because of this, there was a great deal of interest from the start from potential buyers. He was always on hand when I needed advice and reassurance during the process. Never having sold a business before, I had to rely on his experience and expertise and it was invaluable. Mine was probably not a large sale, compared with some he had handled, but I felt he gave it the same amount of attention and application. Finally and importantly of course, the fee structure was very transparent and did not require me to make a large upfront payment, unlike a lot of other brokers. I was comfortable and reassured by this.

Anderson Shaw did a great job selling our business. Richard was fantastic from helping with the documentation through to the negotiations and right up to the sale. He was calm and professional through the ups and the downs and always offered good advice throughout. It was a pleasure to work with Anderson Shaw and it was reassuring to have them on our side and to know that they were always there to help when things got a bit bumpy. Thanks guys and in particular Richard for your huge input and support.

Anderson Shaw certainly proved their worth. My Solicitors commented that it was unusual to find someone who really knew what they were talking about and who continued to manage the process to the end.

I was delighted with the assistance Anderson Shaw provided in selling my business. They generated plenty of interest and conducted the sale in a thoroughly professional manner. Importantly, for me, once we had agreed terms, they ensured the sale stayed on track when the purchasers were distracted with other matters. I would recommend Anderson Shaw without hesitation.

Thanks to you both for your help and support with helping to make our dreams come true!

Can I just thank you for all Chris's and your help, very much appreciated.

- Vendor in 2014 -

Thank you so much for your help and support with regard to the selling of our business, especially for smoothing out the " bump in the road". Without you I don't think it would have gone any where near as smoothly as it it did, or maybe even not at all. You truly are a remarkable person, an excellent negotiator and a great judge of character, (the buyer) is brilliant!

- Vendor in 2014 -

Anderson Shaw was recommended to us a a team that would go the extra mile to secure the deal and they very much lived up to this challenge. Their approach was thoroughly professional, their advice well-judged and their moral support gratefully received during the more difficult times, so we would certainly use them again.

Richard and Chris were invaluable when selling my business. They were patient and understanding in what was an emotional time and were very supportive. After a lenghty process, they found the right buyer and everything completed on time.

- Vendor in 2013 -

It has been a pleasure working with you. I can't imagine how bad it would have been without your help and patience - it is a huge relief to me to have completed a successful deal after all this time.

- Vendor in 2013 -

Just to say a thank you for all the assistance you gave me during the recent sale of my company. Not many people will have the experience of the amount of work in the selling of a company, your expertise in finding the right purchaser for me was invaluable and the support during the negotiations was much appreciated. The deal structure, as you know, gave me a 2 year contract with the purchasing company, as I look back over the last 2 months in my new position I can say with complete honesty that the 2 best decisions were to allow you to represent me and to sell the company.

We were very happy with the service provided by Anderson Shaw which led to the successful sale of our business at the Guide Price. Richard’s input was invaluable, dealing with 3, ultimately, abortive offers and overcoming a number of difficulties before the final deal was done, and we would have no hesitation in recommending Anderson Shaw to business sellers.

We came across Richard Anderson via an internet search engine & engaged him following an hour long call back and a couple of subsequent meetings. Richard took the time to really understand both our business and our personal circumstances. The valuation that Richard put on our business was very accurate and the level of interest generated is testament to the way in which he presented our company to the market. His knowledge and experience of similar transactions proved to be an invaluable asset and he delivered some great advice in a professional yet friendly manner that allowed us to understand any given situation and make informed decisions. It was particularly reassuring to have Richard's presence throughout all stages of negotiations and his involvement played no small part in a very successful outcome.

We engaged Richard Anderson of Anderson Shaw to undertake a valuation of our business. We ended up with much more; not only a valuation but a 5 year financial forecast and valuable advice from a knowledgeable expert. We cannot recommend the services of Anderson Shaw highly enough.

The last disposal transaction we worked on together was certainly memorable – your calm style, intellect and negotiating skills again brought home the deal to the great satisfaction of all involved. Well done!
