Thanks very much to the JDC team for all your help in getting this project over the line. Having truly expert advice and support on hand to take us through the process was invaluable. JDC really demonstrated their professionalism and expert knowledge and provided excellent and really valuable personal support.

Red7 Marine

Having JDC Corporate Finance on board for our recent voyage across some rather choppy water, was a very calming experience. Having seen our market drop away by some 50%, Chris and Alex engaged with our creditors to forge some strong relationships, negotiating support to enable us to climb back to a more comfortable position. The JDC team showed great leadership to our finance team, giving them the confidence to engage with our supply chain and strengthen our financial position. They engaged with our directors and new investors, supplying fast and accurate cash forecasts to enable us to plan meaningfully and steady our ship. It was great to work with you both, thanks again for your fantastic support.

Make it Clear

Over a period of 12 years JDC have guided us through our original MBO and now through two further reorganisations. Their deal advice and knowledge has been excellent throughout. Along the way, JDC have also delivered great ongoing business advice and have always been there for us when needed. I really could not recommend them more highly.

PVS Holdings

Selling PVS was a very difficult decision to make. Not knowing about the sales process can be stressful, however James and Dave helped us understand this and more importantly realise the potential value of our business, both to our own market and complimentary markets, which led to a greater purchaser audience. Everyone at JDC was professional and understanding of our needs and demands, assuring us that the sale process was in good hands with the knowledge and experience that JDC brought to the table. I would highly recommend the JDC team to any business wishing to sell; we found them friendly, understanding and professional, but above all they were able to deal with all aspects of the sale from start to finish and in a timely fashion.

The Wylie Veterinary Centre

We reached a pivotal point in the life cycle of our practice where we needed external expert advice in order to implement our strategy for growth. JDC came highly recommended and from our first meeting it was clear that not only did they understand the veterinary space, but they were able to debate and challenge the strategy to ensure that we have fully considered all of the complexities involved. Dave, Alex and Adam spent time with the shareholders and the wider management team before focussing their work in the key areas where their expertise added real value. We look forward to working with JDC on the next stage of our exciting journey.

GEV Group

JDC have been an adviser to the GEV management team since 2015 and provided important advice and support during this latest transaction, which helped us to benchmark the terms offered and analyse the basis of our engagement in the newco going forward. It has been a pleasure to work with the JDC team again and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for advisers who need a trustworthy partner to help them navigate through the complexities of an institutional investment.

Jablite

Chris and the team at JDC offered invaluable advice and support throughout the process. What really impressed was their no-nonsense approach coupled with determination to move forward within a very short time-scale.  Their knowledge of the best people to partner with and fast modelling of the offers allowed us to make informed decisions. We were very impressed with the constant communication and feedback on progress.

Signwaves

To say we couldn’t have achieved this without JDC would be an understatement! From inception of the plan to a successful conclusion less than 12 months later, Jon and his team’s expertise across all aspects of a complex transaction, and ability to communicate it effectively to both sides of a mixed experience audience, was invaluable. I cannot praise JDC highly enough, this partial management buy-out marks the start of an exciting new chapter in the company’s evolution. A springboard for future growth!

Mark Ford Co-Founder of Signwaves

Wiggly Amps

JDC have been a long-term adviser to Wiggly Amps and provided invaluable advice, support and deal management which enabled us to close the transaction in a short time frame. I genuinely could not have asked for a more balanced, accommodating and professional service. There is no doubt that their focus and commitment were vital to us getting the deal done. I would highly recommend JDC to any business owner considering their options or selling their company.

Project Network

From our first meeting with JDC it was clear that their hands-on senior led service was the differential to competitors. JDC took the time to understand our business and provided us with the options available. They assisted us in presenting our business plan to funders where we secured the necessary funding to fulfil our ambitious growth plans. We look forward to continuing to work with JDC to achieve our objectives and would highly recommend them to SME owners seeking advisers who can add real value.

BTS Group

We had never had any dealings with JDC prior to meeting with Dave and Adam, but from the outset I found them to be honest and straightforward and everything they said they would do at our first meeting they delivered. JDC identified a buyer who we would never had thought to approach ourselves and worked hard to negotiate a deal which was in line with our aspirations. Dave and Adam were involved at every stage and present at every meeting and their hands-on, personal approach throughout the process was a big reason why the deal happened within a sensible time frame.

Hal McCallum Managing Director of BTS Group

The Big Prawn Co.

On recommendations from HSBC, we opened discussions with JDC, who promised a hands on approach with no shortage of effort and time. I can honestly say they did not let us down; they were professional, extremely attentive and supportive. They found the right solutions and engaged relentlessly with the management team, banks and lawyers to achieve a smooth conclusion. I very much enjoyed working with the JDC team and have every intention of continuing with this relationship. Thank you JDC.

Lida Vets

I engaged JDC after doing thorough research into the market to identify the best corporate finance firm in the eastern region for my business. After having now been through the process, I have to say that I am so pleased I appointed JDC. Dave and Adam unlocked and delivered an exceptional deal, well in excess of what I had hoped for and supported me hands-on throughout the whole process. It has been a pleasure working with them and I would not hesitate to recommend JDC to any business considering a sale.

Motorclean

The service provided was exceptional. The competitive process JDC ran and their connections with lenders meant we had a range of lending options to choose from and we are in no doubt that we have secured the best possible financing deal. JDC’s advice was clear and consistent throughout a complex process and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for advisers who can make a real difference and add value to their business.

David Warren Managing Director of Motorclean

GEV Group

We engaged JDC due to their successful track record in our sector and the immediate confidence we felt in their ability to secure a deal.  Dave Howes and his team guided us through every step of the transaction, providing advice and acting as an effective filter during due diligence, allowing us to run our business in parallel.

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.
