Read what our clients have to say about working with Knight Corporate Finance

We are in no doubt Adam and the team overcame a number of obstacles, including keeping the conversations going through lockdown at the height of the pandemic and successfully defending our position on key commercial points in diligence to ensure that we were not susceptible to any late price negotiations. From the get-go, Knight ran a professional and efficient process, ensuring we were prepared and negotiated a deal that we are delighted with

Merger with Aurora, owned by Digital Wholesale Solutions (backed by Inflexion) 2020

We have known the team at Knight for many years, and they have always been there when we have needed informal advice on various strategic opportunities. When we decided to undertake a formal process we already had an appreciation of their sector knowledge, and they knew Zest4 and our culture. It was clear that Knight had strong relationships at CEO level with every party we wanted to include in the process and were able to deliver a genuinely diverse range of offers from some fantastic businesses.

Strategic Investment from Focus Group 2023

Fidelity engaged Knight to run the process and were thrilled with the level of interest that Fidelity Energy received from some of the UK’s leading private equity institutions. However Knight really came into their own in the second part of the transaction. The amount of information required, the number of people involved in separate due diligence streams, and the level of complexity in terms of pulling a deal like this together is impressive. Knight were supportive throughout the whole process and importantly were a guiding force for both Sean and I during the transaction. We can’t speak highly enough of the entire Knight team.
John Haw
CEO of Fidelity Energy


Private equity investment from Blixt Group 2024

When I decided to sell my business, a friend recommend Knight as a good company to carry out the search for a buyer. They stood out from the other companies I looked at and charged a very fair fee structure. During the sale, the team did a fantastic job from day one. I sold on exactly the terms I wanted and in a very short timescale. I would recommend Paul and his team to anyone selling their business.

CEO and Founder of Pinnacle


Trade Sale to Focus Group 2024

The team at Knight have done an outstanding job over two transactions, firstly by helping to create EnableX Group and supporting us in accessing the funding for that transaction, and secondly in the sale to Gamma. Their support in all aspects of the transaction has been outstanding, and Paul and the team played a critical role in making this happen.
Will Morey
CEO of Enable X


Trade sale to Gamma Communications plc 2023

From our initial discussion through to completion the team at Knight were first class in attitude, sector expertise, execution, and balanced the deal intricacies with surgical precision whilst navigating the inevitable complexities of the transaction as it approached its conclusion. Taking your business to market is an exciting and daunting prospect. There are so many areas it can fall down or fail, not to mention impacting your ability to run the organisation. From the start they showed their capability, excellence and professionalism, constantly demonstrating expertise, knowledge and an ability to deliver in every scenario, always, with calm and considered poise. For me having been on both sides of M&A over the years, the Knight CF team truly operate a cut (well) above. I couldn’t recommend them enough – not to mention they are thoroughly decent people.
James Evans
CEO and Founder of Digital Origins


Cross border trade sale to Evergreen 2024

We engaged with Knight at an early stage as we wanted to ensure we were fully prepared for a transaction. As a result, we were able to plan our timetable and our shareholders were able to discuss and define their individual aspirations. Knight identified a select group of potential purchasers and it was extremely satisfying to see genuinely high-profile companies competing to work with us. This led to our choice of SCC, as a great choice for both our customers and our employees and the perfect partner to supercharge our growth. The due diligence and legal process was intense, but Knight guided the deal through to completion and were great people to deal with.
Bob Garcia
CEO and Founder of Resonate


Trade sale to SCC 2024

Knight CF were the perfect partners to see us through the process of selling our business. We met with numerous advisors and selected Knight CF because they were experts in our sector and able to prove a successful track record of completed sales. Plus, and this is a big one, we liked them. This was important, as throughout the process we spent many hours with them. We worked closely with Dom Lillie, who was professional and calm, always willing to work with our other advocates and go in to bat for us to negotiate with the buyer advisors. Dom’s financial knowledge and experience helped us to fully understand the implications of the agreed offer structure and the deal unfolded exactly as Dom had advised us it would, with the funds flowing accurately and correctly. I can highly recommend Knight and we would not have wished to have had anyone else by our sides to get us across that all important finishing line. Thank you, Knight!

CEO and Co-Founder of Lynx UK


Trade sale to TXO 2023

I have worked with Paul Billingham at Knight for a number of years and his advice has been invaluable. The Knight team ensured that we got the right deal for everyone at Network Telecom and the transaction could be completed efficiently with the minimum of disruption to the business.
Paul Maxfield
Founder and Managing Director of Network Telecom


Long term strategic advisor and cross border trade sale to Enreach 2019

Knight took the time to understand our business and they used their industry knowledge and contacts and highlighted a number of different options that we did not realise were available to us. Knight identified YFM as an investor with significant experience supporting management teams in the TMT sector. They managed an intensive process and they were instrumental in getting this deal to complete.
