“We were very pleased with the support and commitment shown to us by the Grant Thornton Team. It was our first experience of an acquisition and it was very important that we were given the expert guidance throughout the whole process, from the initial workshops to completion. We would highly recommend Grant Thornton to anyone looking for that complete service.”

Jamie Reid, Sales Director

Delivering a strategic price from a tailored process, focused on key global strategic acquirers, run to a tight timescale

iSAMS reached out to us in August 2020 for corporate finance sell-side advice to the company's shareholders, as well as a range of tax advisory services covering both company and personal tax. Focusing on the shareholders key requirements, we ran a confidential and highly competitive process with a limited selection of strategic global acquirers in just 12 weeks, from start to finish.

How we helped

Our approach allowed us to find the right strategic partner who could see the value in the iSAMS platform, and help accelerate iSAMS' growth trajectory as it expanded into the state schools market in the UK
