Kevin Paget - FCMA CGMA



Deal Advisory


As part of the Menzies Deal Advisory team, I advise business owners and management teams on all aspects of buying and selling a business, including Management Buy-Outs (MBOs) and Management Buy-Ins (MBIs).

My day can include initial discussions to determine options and valuation, raising the funds (if buying), finding and negotiating with potential buyers, overseeing the due diligence process, advising on the commercial aspects in the legal documents and overall project management of the transaction through to legal completion.

Deal sizes are typically in the £3m – £75 million valuation range but can be higher or lower.

Selling a business is often the biggest financial transaction in a business owners’ life. They have one chance to get it right and, by placing their trust in me, I work hard to ensure that their faith in me is justified.

“Kevin Paget was instrumental in structuring the original MBO transaction and it was a pleasure to work with him again. He worked pragmatically with all parties to craft a solution which helps the company reduce its borrowing costs and increases equity value for both the management team and Panoramic.” Stephen Campbell, Investment Partner, Panoramic Growth Equity LLP

“Throughout the extremely detailed and lengthy Due Diligence process, Kevin Paget and Pete Mills of Menzies were always on hand to guide us through aspects of the transaction that we were not familiar with. Their support was invaluable in negotiating our position and helping us bring the transaction to an early completion.” Paul Allan – Chairman, Ian Allan Travel

Apart from seeing my kids growing up and being proud of their achievements, I like to challenge myself physically with calisthenics and have also undertaken some fairly extreme adventures in various parts of the world.
