Keebles racks up deals worth in excess of half a billion

The corporate and commercial team at Keebles acted on more than 60 deals with a combined value in excess of £550 million in 2018.

High-profile transactions in 2018 included advising on the £45 million-plus sale of Altek Group to the Harsco Corporation and representing IFA on an £8.5million investment in the aerospace and industrial forger.

Keebles also supported Ask4 on its secondary buyout by Bowmark Capital and acted for Pressure Technologies in its disposal of Hydratron to Pryme Group.

The corporate and commercial team team has already worked a number of deals in 2019. The firm represented Evac, a cleantech solution company, in its acquisition of Transvac Systems.

The team has a strong pipeline of deals for completion across Q1 and Q2 in 2019, according to Keebles.

Matt Ainsworth, head of the corporate and commercial team at Keebles, said: “2018 has marked a trailblazing year with deals volumes topping half a billion pounds for our rapidly expanding client base. Despite the increasing political uncertainties surrounding Brexit, we are confident that 2019 will be another formative year for our continued growth.”

The firm’s regional, national and international client portfolio includes Pressure Technologies, Axel Johnson International, Wyndham Destinations, ELG Haniel, and Hill Care and Vacation Rentals, whose brands include Hoseasons and James Villa Holidays.
