It was a huge challenge trying to sort out the MBO whilst managing Business As Usual at the same time, however we always felt very re-assured by the excellent and knowledgeable service we received from Dave at all times. There was even a time when it looked like our deal wouldn’t go ahead, but Dave kept us focused and on track which was a personal service we would not have received from the larger firms. We would not hesitate to work with Dave again in the future.

Dave’s service is absolutely first class – it was exactly what we needed when we were selling our business. He combines strategic vision with tremendous attention to detail, and his experience was instrumental in getting us the deal we wanted. We were a very demanding client, and had fired our previous advisers from one of the big names. Dave’s service was immeasurably superior, and if I ever sell a business again, he will be the first person I will call.

Dave’s experience and support was invaluable in getting the deal done. He was always available when I needed him, and the service was excellent.

CCF were introduced to myself over a year ago. In that time I have bought a business and sold one, with other projects in the pipeline. The experience that CCF have in this field has been very valuable both in helping to raise the finance for the business we bought and the knowledge required to make such an acquisition.

The help that we received and the advice was without doubt hugely beneficial. CCF were available throughout the process on both acquisitions outside working hours which was obviously something we needed at times during the process on both sides of the fence, as seller and purchaser.

I have completed two transactions with Coombes Corporate Finance in the past 12 months and found Dave’s pragmatic no nonsense style to be a breath of fresh air.  This coupled with his past experience and constant contact makes for outstanding service.  I would have no hesitation in recommending him or his company.

“ I worked with Dave for nearly a year to get a deal across the line and it was a combination of his knowledge, tenacity and attention to detail and my knowledge of our sector that finally got us to the finishing line … it was a real team effort. Dave does exactly what it says on the tin; he is honest, upfront and realistic and this was so refreshing. I would definitely work with Dave again and recommend him to anyone who needs help to buy a business.”

“With Dave, what you see is what you get and his no nonsense approach suited us down to the ground. We had little experience in the world of corporate finance and Dave guided us through our MBO seamlessly, fully explaining every step of the process, in layman’s terms, where necessary. His advice was clearly well considered and always strategically focused. He gave us realistic timescales and stuck to them and gave us as much of his time as we required. It was extremely reassuring to know that he was always available at the other end of the phone or email and we knew that we were never being passed on to someone else to deal with. He is a tough negotiator and we knew that he would fight our corner to get us the best deal – which he did!”
