Here are some examples:

“The process was very good overall. Everyone at KBS was very helpful, they all got on board and were proactive. I was very pleased when the sale went through.”

Alistair Garden, Belowground Contracts Ltd  founder.

“KBS Corporate was most successful in marketing our scientific instruments business and almost immediately found potential buyers. The team is highly professional, always available and knowledgeable. Consequently, KBS Corporate assisted us hugely with the process, which included participating in meetings with possible acquirers. The conclusion of it all was a successful sale that would have been a great deal more stressful without KBS Corporate’s help and we achieved a value much higher than we initially anticipated.”

Bob Town, Managing Director of GT Vision.


“I was happy, it was an easy process and KBS handled it well. I would recommend KBS Corporate to anyone who wants to explore a business sale and is seeking sound advice.”
