Corporate Finance Case Study

Bollfilter

Over the years Managing Director John Dow and Finance Director Veronica Brown, operating as Geedon Ltd, built up Bollfilter UK Ltd to become an exceptionally well-managed and successful business. Geedon Limited owned 75% of the issued share capital in Bollfilter UK Limited and the remaining 25% was owned by Boll & Kirch Filterbau GmbH (based in Germany). In early 2019, after having devoted years to establishing the Bollfilter brand, John and Veronica decided to exit the business and look to retirement.

One of the core objectives for both Veronica and John was ensuring succession and continuity of both the business and the Bollfilter brand that they had spent so many years developing. The Corporate Finance team at Scrutton Bland were able to help the pair draw up a robust business plan enabling the sale to proceed to German partner Boll & Kirch Filterbau GmbH which gave the existing UK management team the continuity of a buyer who was already known to them, whilst at the same time meeting John and Veronica’s own personal financial goals.

Animal welfare charity

Despite rescuing over a thousand horses, ponies and donkeys, the charity receives no government funding but relies solely upon donations from the public in the form of memberships, open days, special fundraising events, grant funding and legacies. The aim of the organisation is not to offer retirement care for equines, but to find suitable foster homes for the animals, whether they go out as rideable horses or as a companion to the foster carer’s own horse. The work of the charity means that they place rehabilitated horses and ponies in foster homes all over the country and regularly check on the animals using a team of Fostering Monitors.
