Case study: Wholesaler / Importer of specialist clothing items
The client, a family business, had grown massively by exploiting a niche wholesale opportunity and sourcing goods from abroad. They had been previously approached by a group claiming to be able to sell their business and had consequently attended a seminar. After parting with a substantial upfront fee it became clear that the firm, despite its claims of being able to find numerous buyers, was in fact unable to help.
Hyde House quickly found a private buyer however the buyer was subsequently let down by his bank. Hyde House connected the buyer with a source of funds and restarted the negotiation process.
Having established a deal at heads of terms with all parties committed to succeed, the due diligence process then unearthed a major issue: the business had been advised to take a tax planning product involving the use of trust funds. Having sought advice from leading tax and accounting firms the buyer was able to illustrate that the potential liability under the trust when closed and unwound by the HMRC would be huge. Having taken independent advice to collaborate this claim it became clear that the deal was in serious jeopardy.
However, Hyde House brought all the parties together and was able to deliver a solution involving deferred payment and the use of ESCROW while jointly negotiating with the HMRC, ensuring a successful completion in spite of these considerable challenges.
"We were faced at every turn with complications when trying to sell our business. Hyde House never faltered but faced every challenge and overcame them even where others had previously failed".
