JDC advised on the sale of Haven Veterinary Healthcare to CVS

CVS is listed on the London Stock Exchange and trades via the Alternative Investment Market.

Haven Veterinary Healthcare is one of East Anglia’s oldest small animal veterinary practices servicing Great Yarmouth and the surrounding area for over 130 years.

JDC were instructed by the shareholders to carry out pre-sale due diligence to identify and rectify any potential issues before acting as lead adviser through a competitive sale process comprising private equity firms and national corporates.

Director, Robert Livie commented “Initially we were sceptical as to the value that JDC could add and how they would justify their fee - we had already been approached by a number of corporate buyers and were confident we could agree a deal with one of them. However, in the end, not only did JDC ensure that the deal happened, their expertise in negotiation and maximising value meant we ended up selling for considerably more than we would have achieved on our own. Jon, Adam and Kerri were heavily involved in every stage of the process and having now experienced the process of selling first hand, I can honestly say that without their help and guidance we cannot imagine how we would have managed through this stressful time - thank you once again!”.
