Greenaway Scott hails ‘significant year’ for international transactions

Cardiff-based business advisory firm Greenaway Scott has celebrated advising on a “record number” of international deals over the past 12 months.

The firm, which specialises in advising across the life sciences and healthcare sector, has facilitated four high-profile cross border transactions, with values in excess of £50 million, during that period.

This has included the multi-million pound investment by US Silicon Valley private equity firm Telegraph Hill into TrakCel Limited. This high-profile deal helped to support the continued development of its cutting edge clinical orchestration software platform.

The firm also took a landmark step into the digital currency market by advising global BitCoin business Vaultoro through its seven-figure investment from Finlab AG. Ahead of this it advised US-based medical device company Clinical Innovations on its acquisition of Brenner Medical GmbH in Germany.

Its most recent international work saw the award-winning advisory firm support medical device manufacturer Flexicare Medical in its acquisition of Medisize BV. This deal will enable Flexicare to expand its presence further into mainland Europe.

Founder and managing director of Greenaway Scott, Nigel Greenaway, said the growth in the business’s international work this year has “set the tone” for what is to come in 2018.

He said: “Greenaway Scott has made huge, and impressive, strides in relation to international advisory expertise this year, and we as a firm are delighted with the results we have achieved for our clients.

“We feel this is the next logical step for our constantly growing firm, and is an area that we are actively looking to expand on next year.”

Greenaway Scott has supported these landmark international transactions thanks to its membership within the international network IR Global. IR Global is the largest professional service network in the UK, providing access to companies and individuals in 155 jurisdictions.
