Smith & Williamson advises on the Acquisition of Amber Taverns
Smith & Williamson Corporate Finance has provided advisory support to MxP Partners on its acquisition of Amber Taverns in a transaction valued at approximately £80 million.

MxP Partners was a founding shareholder of the business in 2005 and has now led an investment consortium backing the existing management team in acquiring the business from LGV Capital. The transaction will see the business look to continue growing the size of its estate across Northern England, the Midlands and Wales over the forthcoming years.
Michael George, founder of MxP Partners, said: “Given our prior relationship with management and knowledge of the business MxP was uniquely placed to acquire the business in a short period of time. The pro-active support provided by Smith & Williamson Corporate Finance during this process played an important role in securing a positive outcome”.
