Upsurge in sales of on-line businesses, reports Turner Butler

Reflecting the increasing maturity of the e-commerce sector, ‘No sale, No Fee’ business broker, Turner Butler has seen an upsurge in on-line businesses successfully sold during 2015.

‘E-commerce as a sector has firmly established itself amongst the top ten sectors of businesses brought to market currently’ said Rupert Cattell, Managing Director of Turner Butler.

Interest in acquiring e-commerce style businesses is equally prevalent, significantly shortening the period of time it takes to achieve a sale, particularly for companies that have a proven track record of many years of successful trading.

Two recent examples are UK Wristband Limited sold by Turner Butler earlier this year and The Footy Shop – a market leader in on-line retailing of football sportswear, both of which sold to private investors easily within the time constraints set out by their original owners, with the latter completed within an astonishing 20 weeks from Turner Butler’s appointment.

Rupert Cattell, who handled both sales added: ‘There was substantial interest in both of these businesses from buyers from the UK as well as overseas. The sales demonstrate that where businesses are competitively priced, such as UK Wristband and The Footy Shop, they will attract high levels of interest. In the past few months, we have successfully completed on the sales of several other e-commerce businesses, with more deals in the pipeline due to complete shortly.”

PLT Services completes latest acquisition amongst Turner Butler cleaning company Clients.

Leading ‘No sale, no fee’ business broker, Turner Butler, has announced the sale of Mitcham based Direct Cleaners Limited to PLT Services, a company specialising in office and floor cleaning, with a particular presence in the commercial and industrial sectors. With a large domestic customer base and a number of high profile hotel Clients, the acquisition of Direct by PLT, significantly expands its customer base and takes it into new markets.

PLT’s acquisition is just the latest secured by Turner Butler in the cleaning sector. ‘As well as general cleaning – commercial, industrial and domestic, we regularly achieve sales of specialist cleaning companies’ commented Tony Bell, Regional Manager, Turner Butler.

One such example was Techclean Services (Wessex) Limited, a Dorset based data centre and IT equipment cleaning company.

‘Cleaning companies can represent attractive acquisition opportunities to a wide range of target audiences – private individuals through to large cleaning conglomerates. The most successful acquisitions and where best value is realised from sale are those with a good deal of synergy between both parties’ added Tony Bell.

The sale of Direct was the third cleaning company sold by Turner Butler in a very short period of time, reflecting an increasingly active M & A market in the cleaning sector.
