Verde Corporate Finance has reported a successful 2019 following revenue growth of more than 50 per cent.
The Cardiff-based team worked on several high-profile transactions including the management buyout of creative agency S3 Advertising and the acquisition of Morris Minor restoration business Charles Ware.
Verde said that transaction values were in excess of £50m in 2019 and it expects further growth in the future.
The company is part of the GS Verde Group, a multidiscipline advisory group that includes law firm Greenaway Scott and patent attorney business Alchemie IP.
The corporate finance team grew to nine members of staff in 2019 and appointed Mike Fenwick as associate director in order to meet growing demand.
Fenwick is a chartered accountant with 30 years of experience including roles at PwC and Baldwins (formerly Broomfield Alexander).
More recently Verde Corporate Finance hired graduate Shannon Cook as junior financial analyst.
“We have had an exciting 2019 and seen a high demand for our advisory services, which we are pleased to say has translated into the completion of a number of successful transactions,” said Craig Blackmore, director of Verde Corporate Finance.
“We are looking forward to 2020 with confidence.”
Nigel Greenaway, director of Verde Corporate Finance and chief executive of the wider GS Verde Group, added: “Verde has grown well in 2019 and the talent pool at the team is now the strongest it has ever been.
“The team at Verde dovetails well with our legal team at Greenaway Scott and the integration of skills and services has found a real niche spot in the market.”
