About Us

Who We Are

Established in 2019, H&Hendricks are a boutique firm of Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors that specialise in increasing business value and preparing companies for future sale. We typically only undertake engagements that are related to this objective and tend not to offer general accountancy or tax advice otherwise; we prefer to leave that up to your existing accountants and advisors.

Crucially, we are not business brokers or M&A advisors either so we will not find a buyer for your company; we’ll ensure that, as a business owner, you are best positioned to realise the maximum value for what you have built whenever the time arises. As a regulated member firm of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales we are bound by the ICAEW Code of Ethics.

What We Do

Our overarching mission is to maximise business value. We work alongside our clients to transform their companies in the ways that matter most to their value by targeting powerful value creation opportunities unique to their business.

Our bespoke solutions unlock business potential to capture competitive advantage and help supercharge our clients organisations to command a premium price tag for their shares; whether raising new equity capital, undertaking a partial exit or executing a full sale. Our diverse collective of talented finance, business and investment professionals are experts in delivering high-impact outcomes that drive business value.

Our Steps Towards Maximising Value

Our bespoke solutions unlock business potential and help our clients to command a premium price tag for what they have built; whether they are raising new equity, undertaking a partial exit or executing a full sale. We’re here to help you tackle the most important decisions affecting your business’s value before you approach a business broker or M&A advisor.

How We Do It…

Insight

Every journey starts with a single step. Our work begins with a comprehensive review of your business that replicates buyer due diligence and an open market valuation. This initial insight into your business helps us to determine what it is currently worth as well as identify opportunities to potentially increase its value.

Design

First what, then how. Everything we do is engineered to increase the value of your company. We do this by adopting a dynamic perspective of your business to focus on how to exploit current and emerging market treads, improve cash generation and de-risk your organisation ahead of due diligence.

Execution

We know how to walk the talk. Our expert team won’t leave you with a glossy PowerPoint presentation to figure out what to do next. We take an active role in assisting your team to implement our recommendations, ensuring that clarity and simplicity are at the heart of everything we do to deliver quantifiable high-impact results.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • No.  A company’s value is not only dependent on its financial performance.  H&Hendricks are experts at identifying value creation opportunities to unlock the full potential of your business and capture competitive advantage.

    Take a look at our Building Value, Business Transformation and Optimising Performance services.

  • No.  Our services are also relevant to companies that are looking to raise capital to support future plans and business owners who may want to realise only a portion of their shares.  Our journey often starts before a decision to sell has been made.

  • Yes. H&Hendricks is a member of the ICAEW Business Advice Service and are able to offer an initial free consultation to any UK small or medium-sized business.

  • Not necessarily.  We also target ‘low-hanging fruit’ to unlock value within the business.  This may be as simple as refreshing how your board meetings are conducted or improving working capital management.  Optimising Performance is a key part of what we do and, in many instances, it involves an investment of management time as opposed to cash. 

    Take a look at our Building Value and Business Transformation services.

  • No.  H&Hendricks specialise in increasing business value and preparing companies for sale ahead of appointing a business broker or M&A advisor.  Whilst we can certainly guide you on the steps you need to take to sell your business, we will not find a buyer for your business.

    Take a look at our Business Support service.

  • That depends.  To achieve a fair value we suggest that you allow a minimum of 6 months to prepare your business before putting it up for sale.  However, we advise that you start your preparations at least two years in advance if you want to realise the maximum value for what you have built.

    Take a look at our Preparing for Sale service.

  • That depends.  H&Hendricks specialise in increasing business value and preparing companies for future sale.  We do not typically undertake routine accountancy and tax engagements unless it is related to this objective.

  • Yes.  We can assist you in the process of evaluating, purchasing and integrating target companies.

    Take a look at our Business Support services.

  • Yes.  The process of raising capital shares many similarities to preparing a business for sale.  We can ensure that your business is regarded as an attractive investment opportunity to your future investors.

    That’s why, at H&Hendricks , we focus on aligning you company’s strategy with its culture. We take pride in designing and delivering clear, pragmatic solutions that are bespoke to you and your business. We’ll challenge your ideas, guide your thinking, and show you exactly how to reach your goals.


“We pride ourselves in our pragmatic and hands-on approach. We won’t turn up with a fancy slideshow and then leave you and your team to figure it out.”
