Project Description

100 branchesHMT LLP undertook financial due diligence for independent residential property group Leaders Limited (“Leaders”) on their acquisition of Home Counties estate agents Aston Mead Ltd (“Aston Mead”).

Since starting as a single branch in Brighton over 30 years ago, Leaders have grown by delivering an excellent local property service and by acquiring reputable businesses to bring their service to new towns and cities across the UK. The recent acquisition of Aston Mead brings it additional branches in two new areas, taking it past the 100 branch milestone.

Leaders’ buy and build strategy has led to its expansion through the acquisition of a range of businesses with branches in areas where it had no previous presence, as well as the acquisition of property portfolios to strengthen its established branches.

Based in Epsom, Walton-on-Thames, Weybridge and Woking, Aston Mead is an award-winning estate agent with a strong local reputation. Leaders will be merging the business with its existing branches.

Andrew Thomson commented,

“We are delighted to have assisted our long standing client Leaders on their acquisition of Aston Mead. We have now advised on three separate acquisitions as they continue to implement their exciting buy and build strategy.”

Matthew Light, Acquisition Director at Leaders commented,

“We are extremely pleased to have acquired Aston Mead which takes us past the landmark of 100 branches. HMT were very helpful with this acquisition, providing finance due diligence in an efficient and timely manner. The HMT team are extremely professional and completed the due diligence comfortably within the requested timeframe.”
