Mergers & Acquisitons Testimonials
The following represent some of the comments we have received from satisfied M&A clients:
"Having known Julie for many years and worked with her on a number of M&A deals I can heartily endorse her enthusiasm, commitment and determination to get the job done."
"RGB was a privately owned Technical Recruitment business with two shareholders. To fund the exit of one shareholder and to provide a platform for growth, we had determined that our best plan was to be acquired by a suitable partner. Julie O’Neill at McCall scoured the market to find a ‘best fit’ and introduced us to Pertemps Ventures, who shared a lot of our aspirations. The process was straightforward, but the negotiations quite delicate. Julie was able to assist us in providing a balanced view in the heat of the discussions using market information and her knowledge of Pertemps Ventures. Having been the majority shareholder, my main concern was what seemed to be relinquishing control, but this was a misguided feeling. Since joining Petermps Ventures, we have gone from Strength to Strength. We are achieving record figures, have lowered our cost base and have the backing of a mature Company both on the Board and with Support Services. Julie has been on hand pre and post acquisition providing Professional advice and guidance. I am very much in day to day control of RGB Limited, but I am now building the business rather than thinking of saving it. I would certainly recommend McCall."

"During a period of transformational growth CLR Global used the introduction services of McCall to strengthen their Board members capacity and secure additional equity investment to capitalise on the potential of emerging markets."
"We had a small care business which was outside our core business activities. With increasing regulation and red tape we decided to seek interest from businesses working in the care sector. The efficiency and speed of the McCall service in finding a suitable acquirer was superb. They scoured the market using their extensive networking skills. They introduced us to the prospective purchaser, helped broker the deal and provided a useful 'prod' for both sides in order to ensure the deal progressed at a mutually agreeable pace. We would definitely use McCall's again!"
"A medium sized business comprising three shareholders, one of whom wished to dispose of his shareholding and emigrate to Spain. The remaining shareholders wished to further develop the business and required a method of funding the acquisition of the departing shareholder's holding. Introduced to the Empresaria Group by Julie O'Neill, we were able to reach agreement for a partial disposal of the business which enabled the departing shareholder to leave and provide a mechanism for the further expansion of the business within the Empresaria Group."
"A south coast driving business with two share holders. One leaving the business one looking to push the business forward. McCall's efficiency was second to none. From initial interest to completion in under three months, was unbelievable. Not having disposed of a business before, McCall offered advice that we understood, helped to educate us in the art of corporate communication and kept both sides focused until completion. If you are thinking of doing anything to your business speak to Julie O'Neil first. We will definitely use McCall again. Thank you for all your help. Absolutely fantastic."
"Just a quick note to say thank you for all your hard work on behalf of Servoca.

As Servoca continues to develop into new areas of Recruitment, we believe that you will be a key partner in helping us to nurture & grow new joint venture opportunities.Thanks."
"Our organisation "IMS People" has benefited over an 8 year long relationship with McCall. In fact the inception of this journey began with her introducing us with Empresaria. This partnership has but flourished over the years - and I can definitely vouch for Julie to have an eye for understanding people; culture; and business nuances which when collaborated unleash value with velocity.
Over the years we continue to receive support from Julie and her team. Whenever we have been looking for a senior talent - we have just gone to her for our needs. Their extensive knowledge and understanding of the recruitment market and ability to match the right candidates to the roles is impeccable. Their consultative, honest and ethical approach has impressed us the most.
Whether for acquiring or selling a recruitment business; or searching for senior talent for your recruitment business, McCall’s team is what you should have by your side!"
