JDC advised on the sale of Saxon Packaging Limited to Smurfit Kappa Plc

Smurfit Kappa Plc is one of the leading paper-based packaging companies in the world, listed on the London Stock Exchange and a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index.

Saxon Packaging is a leading provider of design services and manufacturing for corrugated products, cardboard packaging and boxes within East Anglia.

JDC were instructed by the shareholders to act as lead advisers on a competitive sales process which included potential purchasers based in Europe, USA and Asia.

Managing Director, Paul King commented “Very quickly it became apparent that JDC do not work in the same way as brokers or other accountancy firms and they fully merited their claim of acting as lead advisers, being extremely ‘hands-on’ through every stage of the process and pivotal in making the deal happen. Myself and the team were very impressed by Dave and Adam’s enthusiasm, commitment and professionalism to ensure that all of our objectives were met, delivering a high quality service and achieving a deal with a strategic purchaser that ticked all of the boxes. To any business owner thinking of selling their company, I would highly recommend they contact JDC in the first instance!”.
