Judges adopts exacting criteria, both in the selection of companies that it seeks to bring into the group and in relation to the ethical approach that it adopts in the negotiation process.
Businesses are regarded as being interesting
acquisition targets if they can boast an established product range, an
international customer profile and sustainable sales, profits and cash
generation. Companies with a strong
commercial position in a niche world market are favoured.
Businesses are acquired only if sensible terms can
be negotiated with vendors. It is a
cornerstone of the company’s philosophy that agreements reached with
prospective vendors at the “Heads of Terms” stage are honoured. The directors are all too aware of the
practice adopted by many purchasers that they will bid high to be selected as
preferred buyers, only to shave the price once the acquisition process has advanced. This is not the Judges style.
Vendors will find Judges a determined and
experienced purchaser that is discreet, well financed, flexible and creative to
meet the needs of realistic vendors.
