The Ecology Consultancy Ltd sold to Temple

Ecology Consultancy Ltd (ECL) is one of the UK’s foremost ecology consultancies. John Newton, the managing director, wanted his business to be acquired by a larger organisation in order to take ECL to the next level.

John approached Avondale to assist him in seeking an exit after being recommended by his accountant, Chantrey Vellacott DFK, and his business coach. Avondale conducted in-depth research culminating in three serious offers with different structures. This enabled the price to be benchmarked and placed ECL in a strong position.

Avondale negotiated the best deal value and structure with the preferred buyer, Temple Group. They are a leading environment, planning and sustainability consultancy company. The Heads of Terms were agreed and the deal followed to successful completion.

“Avondale provided attentive and friendly support. Their M&A expert was a pleasure to have at my side through the sale of my business. Avondale were recommended to me by a firm of accountants I had dealings with. They were very friendly and professional from the start and throughout the course of the sale. Avondale provided lots of time and support in helping me understand what I needed to do. They handled dealing with the chosen buyer extremely well and achieved a good result for me. I would recommend anyone seeking an exit to talk to them.”
John Newton, managing director, Ecology Consultancy Ltd
