Over 60 years
of combined experience

Our team has combined experience of over 60 years in assisting our clients to grow through acquisition and through raising funding for organic growth.
We have also helped many clients sell their businesses and realise the maximum value for the companies that they have nurtured and developed.

Our services can be tailored for growth and buy-side clients, and for sell-side clients.

We have considerable experience in preparing financial projections, and benchmarking business performance against industry peers. We draw upon our practical experience and wide ranging commercial knowledge to help clients formalise their business plans. We take time to understand our clients’ underlying corporate vision and goals, and to challenge the assumptions that underpin their plans. The most important user of a business plan is the business itself, and as a ‘critical friend’ to ensure the business plans are robust.

McAleer Jackson helps growing businesses seeking to expand through acquisition and has experience of many different sectors and business types. Our role ranges from identifying targets for you to acquire to the complete management of a transaction. You give us a brief and we will use the specialist research resources at our disposal to gather the necessary information, conduct our analysis and advise on the next steps.

McAleer Jackson has experience of advising management teams to acquire the businesses they have worked hard to build. Part of that expertise is in exploring ways to make the funding work, when traditional sources of finance are not forthcoming. It extends further to supporting effective negotiations with financial modeling, commercial and structural advice as well as undertaking due diligence.

Through our network of contacts, we can introduce our clients to a wide range of funding options.

We have strong relationships with local mainstream funders, grant bodies and many alternative finance providers. We work with our clients to identify appropriate sources and structures of finance to support their business goals, and through experience and market knowledge, we can offer realistic advice on the likelihood of success.

Demergers, reorganisations and solvent restructurings offer business owners potentially valuable opportunities to protect assets, reduce commercial risk and to streamline their interests.

The transactions are often complex, requiring an in-depth understanding of tax , company law and other regulations. The McAleer Jackson team has advised small, medium and large organisations on transactions that significantly add value to their operations, and we have the skills and knowledge to help businesses navigate a path that best meets their unique circumstances.

Exiting a business that has been built by years of hard work and dedication can be a difficult emotional hurdle, but it can be made easier with forward planning. We are experienced in helping businesses maximise their value by understanding the client’s objectives, identifying and addressing any matters what may discourage potential investors. We can advise on exit strategy to ensure the business is attractive to the widest range of potential purchasers.

When the time comes to sell, McAleer Jackson offer a service that will support the business owner from the first meeting to completion of the transaction. Our experts will:
• value your business
• research the market
• help you to find a buyer
• negotiate the “deal”
• appoint solicitors
• assist with due diligence
• advise on areas of the sale and purchase agreement
• assess and advise on your tax position, ensuring the transaction is structured in the most tax efficient way …
• and work alongside you and your legal team until you sign on the dotted line.

Your business might well be the single most valuable asset that you own but do you know how much it is worth, and what you could do to enhance that valuation? Our Team has extensive experience in providing business valuations for a variety of purposes including:
• commercial valuations
• to support certain employee incentive schemes (e.g. EMI schemes)
• for inheritance tax planning purposes.
