The corporate finance team at asb law is delighted to have advised on the investment in Ferrabyrne Ltd by YFM Equity Partners, which has won Private Equity / Venture Capital Deal of the Year at the Insider South East Dealmakers Awards 2017.
The prestigious black-tie Awards ceremony took place at the Copthorne Effingham Hotel in Sussex on Thursday, 2 February and was hosted by Strictly Come Dancing winner and popular TV presenter, Chris Hollins.
The judges were impressed with the fact that the deal involved only South East-based advisers who worked to resolve a number of complex issues, and that it was also focused on protecting and enhancing skilled manufacturing jobs. It will enable Ferrabyrne to push for growth, expand its client base and create new jobs.
