BDR Group acquiries 3C Technology – Jan 23

The advice from the very experienced team at VCF was invaluable throughout the process.  The commercial guidance from Gary as well as the meticulous financial preparation by Stephen was very reassuring. We were not expecting to retire at this stage, however a convincing opportunity was presented to the shareholders by VCF. This secured the staff and business going forward, which meant that the transaction could be completed efficiently with the minimum of disruption.

We were delighted with the outcome, having found an ideal partner in BDR where the two business cultures are closely aligned. We would recommend anyone looking for M&A advice to engage with VCF at the earliest opportunity.

The shareholders of 3C Technology.
