Acuity’s sector capability is best described in the words of our clients

Semiconductors

Lutz Porombka, CEO of Creative Chips

Acuity has deep semiconductor sector expertise which was evident throughout the transaction. From the outset, Acuity understood our business and was able to relay this in a compelling way to an array of international buyers. In particular, I was extremely impressed with their ability to access the right senior people within large semiconductor companies. As a team we had no prior exposure to M&A, and we found Acuity´s support as they guided us through the process, invaluable. I can see why they have earnt their reputation as the most active European advisor in the sector and I would have no hesitation in recommending Oliver and his team.

 

Software

John Blackman, CEO of JHC

We chose Matt and the team from a list of the best mid-market technology advisers in the market based on chemistry, experience and their broad advisory-led approach. Acuity have delivered an outstanding result, coupled with multiple strategic and investment options, against the backdrop of a hugely competitive process. I would recommend Acuity to technology entrepreneurs and investors, particularly in our domains of software and fintech. We found significant value in their candid advice, dedication and deep sector insight focused on delivering a fantastic result.

 

Internet of Things

Anna Stoldt, Corporate Development Director at Vehco

It has been a pleasure to work with Acuity in securing Vehco’s third acquisition as part of the AddSecure Group. The team’s hands-on support, strategic and tactical input and their detailed knowledge of the European telematics and FMS market played a key role in delivering a successful outcome.

 

Telecoms

Ashely Atkins, CFO of Call Flow

As the shareholders in a capital intensive business, with plans to get on with building our FTTP network, we wanted to appoint an advisor who understood our business and who could quickly introduce us to the right investors. Marcus and his team were great – they added value from day one, bringing a knowledgeable perspective to the management team, and had arranged investors meetings within days. Thereafter, we had offers in a month and the team helped us to unpack those and choose the investor that was right for us, before advising us very effectively through the process of legal documentation and due diligence. I would have no hesitation in recommending Acuity to anyone who is contemplating a transaction and who wants a genuinely informed advisor that will be with you every step of the way.
