We are delighted to have advised Delta Motorsport (Delta) on their sale to Cosworth Group.

Delta is a leading company in providing engineering solutions in electric powertrains. Delta has three main business streams; battery systems, electric/hybrid drivetrains and control systems, offering services from initial concept through to low volume production  

Cosworth Group is a British automotive engineering company founded in London in 1958, specialising in high-performance internal combustion engines, powertrain, and electronics; for automobile racing (motorsport) and mainstream automotive industries. 

We advised the shareholders of Delta on the initiation, preparation and execution of the transaction.  

Our involvement covered all components of the M&A process, including the identification of prospective key strategic buyers, deal negotiations, management of the due diligence process and support during the legal drafting and completion processes. 

The shareholders of Delta entered into negotiations with Cosworth in October 2020 with the deal exchanging in January 2021 and completing in March 2021.  

Through driving a process with a high degree of competitive tension we were able to ensure that the shareholders’ objectives could be met in delivering a high-quality transaction with a strategic buyer in Cosworth 


Mike and Tom did an amazing job. From start to finish they were with us every step of the way and helped us achieve the outcome that we had all hoped for. We are delighted with the final result and to have worked with a highly motivated and ambitious team that were able to drive the transaction to a successful conclusion.
