MERGERS, ACQUISITIONS & EXITS
OPTIMA CORPORATE FINANCE
Optima advises on Mergers, Acquisitions and Exits. Our Director Philip Ellis completed his first recruitment deal in 1996 and has advised on over 100 deals, working exclusively in the recruitment sector since 2006.
We work with acquisitive businesses as well as owners who are selling. We often advise people who will only sell a business once in their life, but are equally comfortable advising international listed Groups. We have an international reach, including into Japan. We pride ourselves on being practical, hands-on advisors with an expertise in finding ways to get deals done. Valuation is at the core of every deal, so we have a thorough knowledge of how recruitment businesses are valued. For this reason we regularly prepare valuation reports.
Increasingly we are working with HR tech businesses as they play an increasing role in the recruitment world.
