Proactive advice throughout the management buy-out
KTS Owens Thomas acted as lead adviser on the management buy-out of On Screen Productions (OSP) Limited in Cardiff so that the company could continue to grow. The company was set up in 1993 by Richard Cobourne and Alison King. It began back as a corporate video production company, which later evolved into a full service medical communications and production agency with sophisticated in-house graphics team, digital video production facilities and advanced IT infrastructure.
OSP’s senior Management Team, including Head of Design Vikki Byrne and Senior Producers Mike Dyson and Lydia Owen, expressed a desire to purchase the company, to ensure continued growth and new business development. Management buy-out was also the preferred option for succession of the exiting vendors.
KTS Owens Thomas set about working with the management team to provide necessary advice to formulate a business plan for the company going forward, prepared financial forecasts, structured transactions, funding packages with Finance Wales and project managed the transaction to successful completion of management buy-out.
The transaction now enables KTS Owens Thomas to work with their management team to continue to drive company growth and we continue to support them as our clients on a number of financial services.
