We were delighted with our decision to engage with Cavendish to advise us on our plans to bring inward investment into the group. Duncan, James Ellis and James Baker brought such complementary skills to our internal deal team. They calmly helped us navigate through all stages of the process, due diligence and through to completion. They were a pleasure to work with and I’d highly recommended them
“The Cavendish team led by Joe Stelzer and supported by Chirag Gohil did an outstanding job in identifying Begbies as a perfect home to drive our future growth. Cavendish negotiated an excellent deal and provided invaluable guidance to us through the process.”
I am delighted that we have secured a new loan facility an that our three existing funders continue to support the business during this challenging period, demonstrating their confidence in Morses Club and our growth and digital diversification strategy.
The Cavendish Team have been instrumental in delivering me a buyer which is a perfect fit for my business. This is a wonderful milestone in our history and I am delighted.
