KBS Corporate Oversees Sale of WSW Consultancy Limited
WSW Consultancy Limited is an award-winning building surveying and architectural design practice, based in Fleet, Hampshire. Catering to a variety of industries, the company has established a prominent position within its sector and is held in high regard for the quality and reliability of its service offering, which has ensured the longevity and strength of its client base.
Having built up the business over the course of 27 years, the shareholders, Richard Woods, and Charlotte Woods are offering WSW for sale as part of their retirement plans. During initial discussions, it became clear that securing a buyer who could facilitate further growth and enable staff retention was important to the shareholders.
WSW attracted 24 interested parties with most of the interest coming from trade buyers, with some private equity interest. KBS Corporate was able to utilise this interest to generate a competitive bidding environment.
The successful offer came from Stiles Harold Williams Partnership LLP, a UK trade buyer based in Brighton. The acquisition acts as part of the company’s growth strategy and will enable staff retention.
Steve Alcock, Corporate Deal Executive at KBS Corporate, advised WSW and commented: “Both companies will benefit from each other’s service offerings and allow them to take on more work and expand, during the sale process there were a few hurdles, but these were overcome.”
