Finders Genealogists sale and Investment to Pelican Capital.

Employing over 130 researchers and support staff and using proprietary technology, Finders have completed more than 10,000 missing beneficiary cases for the legal sector, councils, the NHS and members of the public.

Feeling that it was the right time to sell, Danny was introduced to Avondale by Finders’ accountancy firm, Barnes Roffe LLP. Having grown to be one of the market leading firms with an excellent reputation and highly capable management team led by Deputy Managing Director, Simonne Llewellyn, the business generated strong international interest and successfully secured investment from Pelican Capital LLP.

The acquisition will support Finders’ ambitious plans to continue growth, both organically and potentially through acquisitions. Danny is stepping away from the business and Simonne will become Finders’ first Chief Executive Officer.

“Avondale guided me through the process of the sale in a professional and courteous manner. I was delighted with the service received and would recommend them without hesitation to any other business owners considering a sale. Being the founder of a successful business meant I was personally attached to the result of the sale and therefore concerned about Finders’ future as much as achieving a sale at the right price. Sally and the team at Avondale were especially aware of my emotional attachment to the business and handled the negotiations with the buyer expertly given my unique circumstances.
