About Us



  • "It was a pleasure working with the Momentum team and their support and guidance was crucial in getting this deal done.  At every stage of the transaction they provided us with clear commercial advice and managed the process from start to finish.  The biggest compliment I can give them is that they very much felt like a part of the Anana team throughout."

  • “We thoroughly enjoyed working with Momentum.  Management buyouts are, by their nature, complex transactions and we were delighted to have Rob and the team alongside us as our independent advisors throughout this transaction. 

    They worked seamlessly with both buy and sell side teams, helping move the deal forwards. They listened to each individual manager’s objectives and, using their experience and knowledge in structuring private equity transactions, they were able to guide us through to the right deal.  We would not hesitate in recommending them to any management team considering a transaction of this nature.

    We are delighted to partner with IK for the next stage of our growth. With their experience across food production and animal health and an established Pan-European footprint, they are well placed to help us grow our offering and enter new markets. We have exciting plans ahead as we look to expand our success in wet into cold pressed and treats, and we see a strong runway for growth ahead.”

  • "We spoke to a range of advisers when we started to consider taking the business through an M&A process and are delighted to have chosen Momentum. From the outset Ali and the team worked hard to enable us to understand all available options from PE through to a full exit. Then, having decided on a full exit, Momentum identified and accessed a range of key strategic purchasers and ran a tight process to achieve an excellent commercial result. This was only possible as they invested in developing a good understanding of the unique value of our business which in turn enabled them to communicate this to potential buyers and secure the best deal.

    Having co-founded the business whilst at university some 15 years ago, I had not previously been involved in an M&A process. Ali and the team at Momentum put the founders and leadership team through an accelerated learning process which enabled us to understand and navigate the M&A market in a way that I did not think would be possible. Throughout the process it felt like a genuine partnership with both teams working as one in a relaxed and progressive way which massively contributed to the overall success of the project. For these reasons Momentum have been a great choice for us, and I would definitely recommend them to other business owners looking at strategic options for their business."

  • "Momentum have been working with us advising and leading on the process that led to the sale of Deep3 Software Ltd to CACI Ltd on 30th October 2019.
    The team at Momentum worked alongside us in a true partnership throughout the whole lifecycle of the deal, from preparing the business through to closing what was a fantastic deal for both CACI and Deep3 Shareholders.
    On behalf of all the shareholders, I would like to extend a warm and genuine thanks to Ali and Rich who guided us expertly through the process. It was clear from the offset that they understood the market and they took the time to truly understand our business as well. In doing so they ensured we found a buyer that shares our values and culture as well as securing an excellent commercial deal. Selling a business is, by its very nature, a full-on process with many twists and turns along the way. Ali and Rich were professional and supportive throughout, always there when needed and an absolute pleasure to work with.''
