February 9, 2024

AMBITIOUS independent corporate finance adviser Bamburgh Capital has invested so it can help more companies after a record year in 2023, leading a variety of key deals across multiple sectors.

The firm has added significant strength to the team during 2023 and has invested in a new brand and website which better reflects its culture and value proposition for its clients.

Bamburgh Capital is committed to supporting more ambitious companies and entrepreneurs and is ready for further growth. Its ongoing success in a challenging economic environment is built on strong, long-term client relationships, its depth of skills and an authentic, honest style combined with tenacious execution and conviction to deliver outstanding results.

The firm, which has offices in Manchester, Newcastle and Edinburgh, specialises in working with entrepreneurs, ambitious growing companies, under-served listed companies and strategic investors based in the UK or overseas.

2023 deal activity included two international software deals, for Jexo and Old Street Solutions and a transformational public markets transaction for AIM-listed Tekmar Group plc, which saw the Darlington-based offshore wind services company receive investment from US private equity investor SCF Partners.

The team also advised the Alderley Lighthouse Labs at Alderley Park, Cheshire, ReadyGo Diagnostics in Bath; and Manchester precision engineering company Mantec Engineering on its sale to Allied Global Engineering. Bamburgh Capital also continues to advise overseas clients, Ascella Health based in the US and MIJ located in Japan.

Led by experienced corporate financiers Alex Clarkson and Michael Parkinson, Bamburgh Capital offers corporate finance advisory services to both private and quoted companies. The team consists of a further eight professionals and five senior sector specialist advisers.

Co-founder and director Alex Clarkson commented: “2023 was a transformative year for Bamburgh, we have strengthened the team and are now even better placed to serve our clients and help them to achieve their objectives with our combination of skills and service proposition. We are optimistic that deals can be completed in 2024 and are busy working on several projects.”

Co-founder and director Michael Parkinson added “Our clients value our independent, collaborative and long-term approach, and we pride ourselves on delivering for our clients through the sustained effort of our team.

“We are building Bamburgh for long-term success and have invested in strengthening our team and in our brand.

“We’ve advised on a wide range of transactions, reflecting our strategy of broadening our market reach bearing fruit. Our pipeline is healthy across a range of sectors, particularly the manufacturing, technology, renewables and healthcare sectors and we are encouraged that a lot of these opportunities are brought to us through our relationships with people we have delivered for in the past.”
