The awards season is starting again with the nominations for the Thames Valley Deal Awards 2019 having opened recently.

2018 has been a fantastic year for HMT. We have completed over 25 deals since January 2018 with an aggregate value in excess of £350 million and we have this year again demonstrated ourselves as the largest and the most active corporate finance team in the Thames Valley.

As the Thames Valley’s leading advisory firm we have advised on the largest number of mid-market deals of any corporate finance adviser including transformational deals for clients such as the secondary MBO of UAP Limited, the investment in Smyle Media, the fundraising for Channel Mum and the acquisition of Parcel Hub and Mail Workshop by Whistl.

The execution skills evident from deals such as UAP, Smyle Media, Whistl and Channel Mum showcase the broad range of talents at HMT that mean whatever the needs of ambitious entrepreneurial businesses HMT delivers successful transactions for them.

In addition to these deals, HMT have advised on a range of other deals in our core £2 – £50m deal space in the last 12 months, including the fundraising for Waterbear, the acquisition of International Training Group and a partial disposal for a well-known FMCG brand based in High-Wycombe.

Our due diligence team has been hugely active advising a wide range of corporate and institutional clients since January 2018 including the investments in Glownet, Live Better with and Rated People by Downing, the acquisition of Majenta PLM, the investment in Goonhilly Earth Station by Peter Hargreaves and the investment in Hoop mobile app by Edge Investments, thereby further underlining our reputation particularly within private equity and banking for consistent quality and added value.

In the past year, HMT has been recognised with several awards winning ‘Deal of the Year’ (under £10million) for the MBO of Rowan International backed by Connection Capital at the 2018 Thames Valley Deal Awards amongst others.
