North Yorkshire-based accountancy and corporate finance firm Hunter Gee Holroyd (HGH), have advised the shareholder of a printing company on a valuation, which enabled them to exit the business.A printing company with three shareholders approached HGH when one of the shareholders wanted to exit the business. However, they were not sure on a appropriate valuation of ones shares.
HGH, led by Head of Corporate Finance conducted analysis of past trading, combined with precedent M&A transactions involving other UK-based printing companies derived a fair valuation for the equity value of the company.
This enabled the exiting shareholder to receive a fair price for their part in the company. HGH also arranged how the existing company would acquire the shares from the exiting shareholder.
The end result was the ownership went from three to two shareholders and the business can continue to trade as before.
