Business Description
Williams and Partners Ltd is delighted to offer for sale this Home Counties based printing company that was established over 30 years ago and has grown to become one of the most highly regarded and versatile suppliers of print and design in their sector and has been accredited with ISO 9001 / ISO 14001 / FSC and PEFC.

Occupying 30,000sq ft of premises, the Company has an experienced in-house design studio, a print facility incorporating 6 presses, a digital print centre, on-site bindery, die cutting and creasing, metallic foiling, mailing, warehousing and distribution which enables it to design, print, finish, mail, store and distribute, all from a single site.

The Company generated a turnover of over £2.3m to the April 2017 year end with £1.45m generated from private companies and £850,000 from government, local authorities and education (the latter of which has experienced rapid expansion over the last 4 years). Furthermore, 23% of the turnover is generated from outsourced work. In the 7 months to November 2017, the Company has generated a turnover of £1.36m.

Due to a downturn in turnover through October and November, the business is suffering from cashflow problems but with a strong balance sheet, little debt and a recovery on the horizon, the Company is a perfect bolt-on acquisition as it does not require any extensive capital injection and is well placed to grow further as it has a position on 11 high profile framework agreements with several further gateway opportunities to the central government print contract.

The business is being sold by the owner/managers who have decided that the time is right to retire.

The plant and equipment is unencumbered and is listed below.

NB: The Company operates out of 5 units on the same light industrial estate and whilst the majority of the plant and machinery is housed in two leased units, the other three units are owned by the shareholders personally and they would consider selling the three freehold premises at the right price.

Williams and Partners Ltd has been engaged to find a buyer for the business either through a sale of the share capital or, if preferred by the buyer through a sale out of administration on a going concern basis. If we are unable to successfully sell the business on a going concern basis, Williams and Partners Ltd will sell the assets and goodwill including all machinery and (possibly) the freehold properties on a break-up basis and therefore we would like to hear from parties that are both keen to acquire the business itself (the preferred option) as well as those that might only be interested in acquiring the plant and machinery.

Please note that it is our intention to receive offers by no later than Friday 29 December 2017 with a sale concluded within a short period thereafter. Only parties that are able to work within these modest timeframes should respond. Williams and Partners Ltd reserve the right to close the bidding early without liability.

Preference will be given to companies currently within a similar market as we would consider knowledge of the industry is essential to the future success of the business.

Due to the confidential nature of this sale, interested parties will be invited to sign a non-disclosure agreement before further details can be released.

If you are interested in finding out more about the above opportunity, please contact Antony Berg of Williams and Partners Ltd, Valuation and Insolvency Agents on 020 3195 1407 or 078 0303 5445 or write to me at
