Uncompromising standards: Exceptional results

Blending extensive industry experience with a highly professional and personal service.

Our team of experienced professionals advise clients trading in all business sectors. Although each client business is assessed on merit, the vast majority of our clients turnover in excess of £5 million p.a

Understanding the Sales Process

Putting a business up for sale is a very large commitment. Owners can expect the process to take at least a year, requiring time spent in preparation, finding potential buyers and agreeing terms with the selected acquirer. Each transaction requires approximately 1500 hours of our consultancy time, from initial meeting to signed deal.

We only take on an owner’s sales mandate if there is a very good prospect of a successful outcome, including realistic price aspirations. We expect owners to be fully committed to the sales process and prepared to devote the time and attention needed for a successful result.

In return, our clients receive a fully personal, completely tailored service from our team of experienced professionals who are experts in the creation, management and successful delivery of business sale campaigns.

If you would like to discuss in confidence how we can help you with buying, selling or growing a business please call us on 0118 959 8224.

Social Responsibility

EvolutionCBS supports two fantastic charities through our Executive Chairman Rob Goddard.

We are a corporate supporter of CALM – Campaign against Living Miserably, a charity leading a movement against suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK and the cause of 18 deaths every day. Rob believes strongly that business owners should not have to sacrifice mental health and happiness in pursuit of success.

Rob also sits on the Board of Trustees of My Cancer My Choices, an amazing charity that gives people living with cancer the chance to enjoy their choice of complementary health therapies in a calm and caring environment. In the four years it has been operating My Cancer My Choices has provided complementary therapies to over 1,000 people.

  • "It has been a long journey but I am very pleased that I decided to work with EvolutionCBS to achieve a very successful exit. The team at EvolutionCBS plus the excellent support from key persons from Advanced have worked together and this true synergy has been outstanding and most rewarding emotionally as well as financially."
    Barry Lea, Advanced Engineering Ltd
  • "You have a good team and I hope we can stay in touch with Steve in the future, after all he’s part of the family now!"
    Kevin Pay, Wilcomatic Limited
  • "Thanks to the whole team at EvolutionCBS and of course especially Steve who was excellent at pressing the right buttons at the right time."
    Selwyn Rodrigues, Wilcomatic Limited
  • “Mike and the team did a great job. I would recommend your company for its professionalism and friendly help.”  
    Bernard Taggart, HE&D Limited
  • “From day one the support, knowledge and expertise that EvolutionCBS provided us with was a revelation. Without the impressive IM, introductory meetings, patience, eloquence and negotiating skills of our dedicated Client Director, Mike Whittle, together with his team that provided information throughout the whole process; we would have never completed our sale. We are truly thankful to EvolutionCBS and can’t recommend them highly enough!”  
    Lisa Bell, Earnshaw Engineering Ltd
  • “Immense gratitude to you and your team for the help and perseverance you provided to us to get the deal over the line. We never believed our business would return such a great price, and know that it could not have been achieved without EvolutionCBS’s dedication and professionalism."  
    Dave Bell, Earnshaw Engineering Ltd
  • “‘I have just completed the sale of my business working with Mike Whittle (Managing Director of EvolutionCBS) and his team at Evolution CBS. While I know my business inside-out I knew nothing of what it takes to sell a business. Mike has been patient and understanding in ensuring I fully understand all aspects of the deal. From inception Mike has been able to get under the skin of the business and understand my goals. The team have been extremely responsive, and we have completed the sale in a very short time. At times I have needed some firm hand holding and I have utter trust and confidence that my best interests have been served at every point and would not hesitate to recommend EvolutionCBS 100%."
    Vicky Lopez, DRP Client Services
  • "I’m truly delighted, the team has done a great job and have been a pleasure to work with throughout, sincerest thanks to them all. Thank you again for all your hard work in making the deal happen, I couldn’t be happier."
    Dr Wendy Mathias, Obsidian Healthcare Group
  • "Many thanks to everyone at Evolution who helped to make this deal happen. The final deal ended up coming in above the range we’d initially expected, and the lack of an earn-out requirement was an unexpected bonus. We’re glad that we didn’t take an offer in the past via another Corporate Finance firm."
    Roy Hills, NTA Monitor Ltd
  • I would like to say that your advice and experience has been excellent and very helpful.
    Michael Brown, SNS Building Products Ltd

    Clinton Lee, Founder, The Exit Firm
