The transaction was supported by Hentons Corporate Finance and Hentons Legal, advising Ian Goodall on the structure of the transaction and managing the legal process to completion.

Ian Goodall said “the management team have made a significant contribution to the success of the business in recent years and it is now the right time to bring them formerly on to the board and into share ownership”.

Chris Sellars of Hentons Corporate Finance said “having worked with the Company and Ian Goodall for over 10 years we were delighted to support Ian and the team in this new chapter for the business”.
