 Kreston Reeves, one of the leading accountancy and financial services firms operating across London and the South East of England, is proud to have been recognised for the winning transaction in the Deal of the Year for transactions under £10m category, at the South East Dealmakers Awards 2015 held by Insider Media.

The winning deal in the under £10m category was announced as the Acquisition of G.Burley & Sons by Business Growth Fund-backed TC Landscapeson which John Cowie, Kreston Reeves’ Corporate Finance Partner advised.  Tim Sadka and John Kirkwood of Rawlison Butler also advised the Burley family on this exceptional deal.

The business has grown to turn over in excess of £8m annually and focusses primarily on long term contract landscaping and grounds maintenance.

David Burley, G Burley & Sons, said “We could not have chosen a better adviser than Kreston Reeves.  Their attention to detail and professional handholding throughout the process, from first identifying TC Landscapes right through to completion, made it seem like plain sailing.  We can’t thank John Cowie and his team enough.”

Kreston Reeves were also recognised in a second deal in the same category for its involvement in the MBO of Kent Crisps and Kentish Oilsfrom Quex Park Estates.  John Cowie also advised on this transaction together with Kreston Reeves’ Corporate Partner Scott Miles, with backing from Close Brothers.

John Cowie commented, “We are proud to have supported these well respected businesses in completing these two transformational deals and I am delighted that the Kreston Reeves’ Corporate Finance team was given the opportunity of helping.  We wish both businesses every success in the future and they thoroughly deserve their recognition in these awards. 

We are continuing to build new relationships and to provide a wider service offering for the South East region against a backdrop of fantastic deal flow across the entire region.”
