Case Studies

Our recent transactions and testimonials are proof that we deliver value for our clients.

Lanpro Services

The advice provided by JDC was instrumental in both allowing the directors to fully understand the implications of the proposed acquisition whilst also ensuring we had an appropriate structure for our associated company to enable us to maximise the tax position of current and future land promotion agreements.

R. A. Howarth (Engineering)

We completed the sale of our company seven months after instructing JDC and would highly recommend their services to business owners who are looking for high quality, value for money advice that is delivered in a personable manner.

Project Cool

We were delighted with the work of JDC. They produced twice as many offers in half  the time of our previous advisers and are certainly very well connected across the East Anglian market.

I found the advice and input from JDC to be invaluable, we would strongly recommend JDC to companies who are looking to unlock growth and achieve their full potential and look forward to continuing to work with JDC as our trusted advisers in the future.

Kanes Foods

Our first experience of JDC was when we needed help to evaluate a potential acquisition opportunity at short notice.  Chris and Ryan not only turned around a quality piece of work extremely quickly, they also offered great, balanced advice and proved to be both a valuable sounding board and a trustworthy partner.

Gnaw Chocolate

JDC took the time to understand the objectives of the shareholders and quickly saw the potential of the company, presenting a range of growth options to consider.  Adam and Ryan defined a clear three year strategy, one that we are now implementing and we can already see the value that their advice has brought.

JDC presented our business in a professional and credible manner and worked hard to negotiate a deal that surpassed expectations.  Jon and Adam were reassuringly on hand at every stage of a process that is often stressful and more complicated than you would first expect.

We have worked with Tony for over 20 years and our confidence was well placed.  The tax analysis dictated the deal structure and Tony provided clear pro-active advice at all stages.  His advice has greatly helped all the shareholders achieve the best outcome in maximising the net of tax rewards for all.

I was introduced to JDC by my bank after we were the victims of a major fraud.  From the first meeting I was confident they could help stabilise our position, control our cash and improve our financial systems for the future. I would not hesitate to recommend JDC to other business owners seeking some hands-on support.

At all stages JDC helped us to understand the complex tax analysis and planning opportunities available to the shareholders.  Tony provided prompt and pro-active support that helped meet a demanding timetable whilst flagging potential issues and concerns that might otherwise have compromised our tax position.

Rossi Long Consulting

JDC first acted for us in our MBO from URS Scott Wilson in 2012 and have since become valued advisers to our business.  In our recent Capital Restructuring JDC designed a succession structure for us which ‘ticked all the boxes’ for the shareholders and have once again come up trumps. Many thanks again JDC!

Simon Rossi Rossi Long Consulting

Project Platform

Dave and Adam worked with us closely throughout, ensuring we were fully aware of the process at every stage and what to expect, identifying a number of buyers who we had not even considered would be interested.  The deal that was negotiated met all of our expectations and JDC were pivotal in ensuring that the deal happened.

Over the past 18 months Chris has provided advice to the Group on some important decisions including a strategic review the Board undertook in early 2015 and when we changed our banking facilities.  Chris has acted as a valuable sounding board to me and to other senior members of the Group’s management.

Andy Collins Mountfield Group

J & S Products

After receiving a direct approach from a US based buyer, we were referred to JDC by an industry colleague.  We would not hesitate to recommend JDC, as their negotiation skills, expertise and experience in managing the sales process proved pivotal to us in achieving a great result and completing the deal.

When we as a company decided that an MBO was the preferred route for us, JDC provided sound and credible advice and were always on hand to assist and act as a sounding board.  I would highly recommend JDC to SME owners who require assistance in any area of corporate finance, advisory and tax services.

After the very successful sale of our business, we would like to thank all of the JDC team for their advice, guidance, hard work and dedication in completing this complex transaction; something we could not have achieved without them.

We could not have achieved the sale without Jon and his colleagues’ drive, enthusiasm, tenacity, advice and guidance.  Available to me 24/7, through ups and downs and with our interests at heart throughout, JDC were the driving force to ‘clinch the deal’.  A huge thank you JDC for fulfilling our dreams.
