Darren Thompson, Director at Meridian, acted as a Non-Executive and in an advisory capacity.
Speaking of the deal process Chris Thompson Managing Director of ProcessFlows adds “We purchased ProcessFlows in a management buy-out in May 2015 and subsequently sold the business to an international corporation just over a year later. Meridian were involved at every stage: assisting us with the uncharted territory of the MBO, helping us make wise commercial decisions, as a board member and being on hand throughout the disposal process to ensure we obtained the most favourable outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending Meridian as advisors and colleagues to any business considering similar corporate ventures.”
