Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP (AAB), Aberdeen’s largest independent firm of Chartered Accountants, has been named as the top dealmakers in Scotland in 2009 for the 5th consecutive year, topping the Scottish Business Insider tables for both deals initiated and deals completed.
The Scottish Business Insider’s review of the Scottish deals market reveals that AAB completed 33 transactions in 2009, more than double any other accountancy firm in the same period, and initiated 13 transactions in 2009, more than any other advisor in Scotland.
Transactions completed by AAB in the period included the disposal of PI Group to Amec Group plc, fund-raising for Fletcher Shipping in order to facilitate a major vessel acquisition and the disposal of Walker Technical Resources to a management buy-in team backed by Maven Capital Partners.
Mike Brown, Head of Corporate Finance, said “It is hugely rewarding to achieve this fantastic double accolade for the 5th successive year – reflecting as it does on the efforts and successes of an experienced and committed team of individuals. Each year offers up different challenges and through their exceptional talent and expertise our team continue to rise to the occasion and deliver results time and time again.”
Looking ahead, Brown commented “We are certainly extremely positive about our prospects in 2010 given our leading market position and our track record for initiating and executing deals in the Scottish market. We have recently made a number of key client gains and are currently working on over 75 projects and look forward to working with both new & existing clients in order to bring many more deals to fruition during 2010.”
