"I also very much appreciated your brand of 'life support', making yourself available at any time to listen and advise on the million attendant issues I confronted with my colleagues, customers and all the other stakeholders. Keeping the ship steady during the high-stress period of the transaction was vital, and you were most helpful throughout".

"I don’t easily part with my money, but in this case I was happy to because I got value for money.  Well done and thank you; you did what you said you would do and delivered.  I might even call on you again if I find myself doing this again".

"The reason for writing is to thank you for the way in which you conducted the sale of The Handmade Cake Company. From the outset with the collation of the information for the memorandum (which I thought was excellent) and through the "bidding" process I thought you were outstanding. But it was the work that you did once the headline deal had been agreed where I felt you really started to demonstrate why Magus is unique."

"The sheer commitment in negotiating the complex detail of the transaction was fantastic for us - we understand the level of personal (as well as professional) commitment that you put into it. It is not taken for granted."

James Perry, Chairman of The Handmade Cake Company

"It is refreshing to deal with someone who not only understands the business but can stand away from it and offer some decisive clear-minded thinking.  Equally important is the ability to deliver what's required in spite of being under a great deal of pressure."

"You told me that the buy-out was going to be a painful process and you were certainly right!  Without your firm guidance and forceful hand, I dare say that we would have called a halt."

"I had always thought of accountants as an unnecessary evil - until you turned up.  I couldn't understand the use of your monthly strategy sessions, but you proved me wrong.  What you have done has actually made us money!"
