Buyback a company's shares with our company buyback service
A company buyback of shares is a popular and often tax-effective route for shareholders to realise value and exit the business, as payment on the buy back can qualify for capital treatment and taxed at lower rates than dividends. However, the valuation of the shares, structure, and financing of the deal can quickly lead to shareholder disputes.
Through our expertise in this area, we have a history of resolving potential disputes and delivering successful transactions through practised and sensitive share buyback negotiations.

“After deciding to sell our ecological consultancy business, which my wife and I had built from scratch almost 20 years ago, we approached a number of agencies to assist with the sale. We selected Avondale as it was clear from the start that they understood our business and what we were hoping to achieve with the sale. We could not recommend Avondale highly enough.”
“Sally and the team at Avondale made a complex and difficult process as smooth and painless as possible. Whilst we had to kiss a few frogs to get there, we are very happy with the fit found with EMW. This was only possible due to the volume of interested parties brought to the table. Sally was proactive and contactable throughout and the Avondale team were a pleasure to deal with every step of the way.”
“The team at Avondale, ably led by Simon Baldwin, have just been excellent from start to end. Having never sold a business before I was completely in the dark but having Simon at hand 24/7 to guide and advise was invaluable. I cannot recommend Avondale more highly if you are thinking about selling your business.”
“I had been fortunate to work with Avondale in a previous transaction, so when thinking about the next step for our business felt confident in seeking their guidance. I have been impressed by the Avondale team’s professionalism and their expertise was shone through when working throughout the pandemic. As a team, we felt we could trust Sally; she took the time to understand our priorities and, with a good sense of humour, supported us to feel confident during all stages of the negotiation.”
“I am delighted and excited for the Tyrefix team, as I believe with the support of Literacy Capital, the business will now have the resources required to capitalise on the significant growth opportunities available in the marketplace.”
