Testimonial

AHV Associates was mandated to look at a specific expansion strategy into the UK market. Hanif was able to introduce us to a number of parties at the highest level who met our criteria and made a significant contribution to the negotiations.

Ashley Micklewright, Chief Operating Officer
Bluebell (Asia) Limited

AHV Associates represented two of the largest shareholders of GT247 in what was a complicated sales process. Hanif understood not just the financial matters but all aspects of the transaction in detail enabling him to give valuable and timely advice.

David Butler, Founder

AHV did an excellent job in identifying potential acquirers for UK Explorer and in translating the interest shown into a very good deal for shareholders. Andrew worked closely with the UK Explorer team and their professional advisors and his skills and experience were invaluable throughout the whole process.

Fritz Ternofsky, UK Explorer Ltd
Chairman and Investor

Thanks Annette. You did a sterling job at helping us over the line with the MBO- I honestly don't think we would have made it without you. I very much enjoyed working with you and learned a fair bit along the way.

When XchangePoint needed expansion funding in 2002 the management team turned to AHV for assistance. AHV proved to be an excellent choice as they were able to tap the VC markets across Europe. Despite very difficult market conditions following the dotcom bust, AHV were able to secure significant new investment for XchangePoint. AHV were excellent to work with, being both very focussed on the task but also sensitive to the needs of the company.

Keith Mitchell, Founder and Director
XchangePoint Ltd.

I have worked with AHV over many years and have used them as a retained advisor in a variety of different situations. I have always found them to be knowledgeable, professional and always ready to provide advice, even if there is no immediate possibility of an engagement.

As an ambitious company we mandated AHV Associates to secure financing to take us to the next stage of our growth. Hanif took a great deal of effort to understand our company as it was and our ambition. Hanif successfully completed the transaction using a novel structure which was appropriate for both us and the investor.

Manuel D. Medina, Chairman & CEO
Terremark Worldwide, Inc.

AHV were invaluable during the sale of Gamesman. The outcome was highly satisfactory to the shareholders and I have no doubt that we would not have achieved this excellent result were it not for Andrew's incisive input and guidance.

Mark Smith, CEO and founder

AHV was instrumental in the initiation and negotiation of our acquisition of Ipitomi Ltd and in ensuring that it remained on track in a very difficult M&A environment. There were multiple interested parties on both sides of the table and AHV's advice and assistance was invaluable in managing the transaction to completion. The Group has a long standing relationship with AHV and we look forward to extending it further in the future.

We had received unsolicited interest from potential acquirers and we hired AHV to analyse these and assist us in forming our exit strategy. AHV explained the pros and cons of each possible strategy in a clear fashion and not simply limited to the valuation. In particular, Hanif continues to advise us on our ongoing strategy and is always on hand to discuss ideas.

We have worked together on a number of corporate transactions and AHV have been invaluable in ensuring that the transaction process is managed efficiently and professionally. They always remain totally focused on the client's objectives.

Rob Bratby, Partner

AHV have been involved in this transaction right from the beginning. They were instrumental in all aspects of the negotiations, from valuation through to deal structuring and, importantly, project management of what was a complex transaction. I have no doubt that the success of this transaction was down in large part to the skill and perseverance of Andrew and his team.

Roy Peires, Chairman
Club La Costa Group

Andrew and his team are knowledgeable, focused and highly professional in their approach. They provide sensible and pragmatic advice and are a pleasure to work with.

Simon Ainley, Partner
Walker Ainley Associates

AHV were involved in the project right from the beginning when it was just an idea that I had started to think about. I was particularly impressed with the way they were prepared to invest in the relationship-we had many meetings to flesh out the plan prior to AHV being hired. When the acquisition strategy was defined and AHV were hired, their research was spot on and many possible acquisitions were identified. Since then I am delighted that the relationship has worked extremely well for both parties-we have made 4 acquisitions, all through AHV and there are potentially more to come!

Simon Hochhauser, Chairman

Annette handled all the contacts with potential acquisition candidates with tact and skill, ensuring that we had excellent information on which to base our decisions. Her relaxed collegiate style has made our working relationship a very successful one.
