Armstrong is pleased to announce that, in the first year of entering, we have won the Real Deals Private Equity Award 2019 for the provision of Commercial Due Diligence.
Thank you to all our clients, partners and hardworking team for all your support. We look forward to working with you even more closely over the next 15 years, as we have over our first 15.
The award recognises the overall achievement of commercial due diligence advisers in the calendar year of 2018, reflecting success in creating value for clients through the provision of high quality analysis, genuine market insight and service, as well as the overall evolution of team and strategy.
Armstrong has continued to deliver consistently high quality buyside CDD for customers throughout 2018, growing revenue at 37% YoY and adding 14 new clients. Despite intense competition for deals, the team has maintained its exceptionally high standard of advice, adhering tightly to the values of integrity, commercial pragmatism, analytical depth and breadth which are so valued by its clients. The firm is continuing to build the team, recruiting Simon Hemsley, (ex CFO of AIM listed Transact) as Head of Financial Services and 4 additional consultants to the team in 2018; as well as opening an office in Manchester.
During 2018 Armstrong completed 48 UK-based engagements, and 17 with significant activity in Europe, including; France, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Greece, Croatia, Turkey, Andorra, Ireland, Norway and Finland.
The Real Deal Awards are now in their 18th year and working with Cass Business School and a judging panel of leading industry practitioners, these Awards stand apart in both rigour and prestige, and as a result Armstrong are thrilled to be named as the provider of the year 2018.
