Flexmort acquired by Noar Limited, including a complex pre-sale cross border reorganisation.
Well done, Gary, Angela and Christina! Great feedback from a client for our guidance and successful facilitation of the deal – keeping the process clear and straightforward, including a complex pre-sale cross border reorganisation.
Flexmort, has been acquired by a group of investors led by Noar Limited. The business was founded in 2010 by entrepreneur Simon Rothwell who identified the need for mortuary solutions to be more flexible to cope with fluctuations in demand and to overcome both manual handling and specific cooling issues.
Having developed a market leading range, Flexmort’s products are now used worldwide across the healthcare, funeral services and emergency services sectors.
During the COVID crisis, the company played a central role in equipping hospitals and assisting governments in contingency planning to manage and extend capacity.
Founder Simon Rothwell appointed Legal Clarity to deal with all the legal aspects working closely with Gary Davie, Partner, Angela Faulkner, Senior Associate, and Christina Conlon, Solicitor. The sale involved significant pre-sale cross border reorganisation.
“I cannot recommend Legal Clarity highly enough; Gary, Angela and Christina put in so much work and time to ensure this deal was concluded in time for the Budget announcement.”
Simon added, “Gary, Angela and Christina were highly skilled at explaining some complex legal issues in a way that made sense and were always available to answer any questions. They undoubtedly assisted in also alleviating the stress that comes with selling a business by working closely with me and patiently explaining and organising every aspect.”
Gary Davie, Partner at Legal Clarity, added “We were delighted to support Simon and play our part in securing the deal for him and opening up new opportunities for the business going forward. The deal was not without its challenges, including a pre-sale cross border reorganisation, but a pragmatic and commercial approach adopted by all parties including by Andrew Stilton as the buyer’s lead lawyer helped enormously with a smooth deal process”.
