This month (November) sees the consolidation of Eddisons’ acquisition of Barker Storey Matthews, with the latter now designated as ‘Eddisons incorporating Barker Storey Matthews’.

The deal was announced in April last year (2019) when the entire share capital of Barker Storey Matthews was acquired by Eddisons, a wholly owned subsidiary of Begbies Traynor plc.

Work since then has seen the integration of Barker Storey Matthews’ personnel and business infrastructure and its systems, policies and procedures, culminating in full amalgamation this autumn (2020) with its four offices – in Peterborough, Cambridge, Huntingdon and Bury St Edmunds – now operating as the Eastern Region of Eddisons’ UK regional network of 20 office locations.

Commenting on the completion of this final stage of the acquisition deal, Steve Hawkins, Partner, said, “The re-badging of the brands marks the conclusion of the acquisition process which, to the credit of our teams and clients, has gone smoothly, in spite of the vagaries of spring’s business lockdown.

“Our combined office network is well placed to offer the complete suite of property agency and professional services to clients whose business and property interests span the UK.”
