Mark Mills decides to dedicate part of his time to help business owners recover from the Corona Virus crisis by hosting a Zoom call every Monday called Mark’s Motivational Mondays.
Healthcare Communications sold to IMImobile PLC for £15m
The Team: Mark Mills, Mike Cunningham, Rebecca Cunningham, Grant Thornton.
Mark started work with Healthcare Communications (HC) in 2015. Mike and Rebecca (owners) wanted to attract new investment into the business whilst guaranteeing its future and giving them some financial security. We worked through our 40 step process to prepare the business properly, as we have for 10 previous clients over the last decade. We selected a trade sale as the best route for HC and the owners. In 2017 HC reported a turnover of £3.6m and PBT of £400k. The result is clear: a significant premium now (22x PBT), £9m cash out offering financial security and the potential for £6m more based on performance. That’s what appointing Mark Mills does and that’s what we can do for you should you wish to exit.
Mini-Cam sold to Halma plc. for £85m.
The Team: Mark Mills, Nigel Wilson, Chris Wright (LDC), Jonathan Bell (LDC), Frank Shephard (DWF) and David Weavers (Clearwater)
LDC is part of Lloyds Banking Group.
Mark Mills started work with Mini-Cam in 2013 and immediately worked on resolving two key strategic issues and lifting the burden of the exit process from owner Nigel Wilson. Under Mark’s Chairmanship additional funding was secured from LDC in July 2015. The company then grew with the opening of a new R&D facility (InPipe) located close to the German border in the beautiful village of Riezlern in Austria and further expansion overseas into new markets.
