What can FPN do for you?

We get great results by searching out and engaging pro-actively, staying close to our clients, understanding their requirements, using our extensive network of contacts and negotiating and managing the process every step of the way.

And because we run the process, we leave you time to run your business and plan the rest of your life.

What’s more, we like to align our fees to your objectives, so, where we can, we charge most of our fees on success.

FPN is run by Antony Fanshawe (the F in FPN) and Rosemary Penn-Newman (the PN), both Chartered Accountants and MBA’s.

 We are very experienced and knowledgeable, and because we only take on a few cases at any one time, we guarantee that you will get our top team. 

We are always happy to talk to business owners about their aims and ambitions. Why don’t you give us a call on 023 8038 1956 to find out more?

NETWORKING

We also manage a monthly networking club, the Solent Professionals Lunch Club, held on the second Tuesday of every month at Simons at Oxfords, Oxford Street, Southampton. If you would like to come, clink the button below.

SELLING YOUR BUSINESS

If you have been the owner of a successful business for a while, you will no doubt be planning for your succession and thinking about your exit.

We can help you with that.

Achieving a sale for my business required calmness, consistency and bucketfuls of negotiating skills. Rosemary exhibited all these over an extended period and achieved a remarkable outcome given the limitations we found ourselves in. She was always available for advice and took part in difficult, protracted discussions at all hours of the day and night. The calm professionalism of FPN, together with their insight into the processes and their experience of similar sales, made the resulting sale a huge relief for me. I have no doubt that they achieved the very best result possible and would recommend their services to anyone.

BUYING A BUSINESS

If you are at an earlier stage and thinking of expanding by acquisition, we can help you with that, too.

Rosemary and Antony have helped us enormously throughout the process (of taking over Portsmouth Football Club), bringing a very good grounded commercial approach and enormous experience to what has been a long and difficult road for the Trust.

MANAGEMENT BUY OUTS

If you are an ambitious management team and have an opportunity to buy your company, we can work with you, and on your behalf, to achieve your aim.

The whole process of marketing and selling our business was new to all of the directors at Envair, but with the help and support of Rosemary, it made the process very efficient and stress free.
From the initial draft of the IM through to the day of completion, Rosemary was always there and available for advice on any matter during the course of the transaction and gave us access to her network of advisors for all aspects of the deal, which meant we were constantly moving forwards towards reaching our goal.

RAISING FINANCE

If you need working capital or investment finance (debt or equity), we can identify potential sources, help you put together plans and forecasts, and help you to get the best deal available.

Fantastic news that we’ve all now completed. Though it probably didn’t feel like it at times, the execution on this was excellent, particularly once the DD was complete. Rosemary, thanks for your open approach to working with us – you demonstrated that you are far more commercially astute than most, and got a great outcome for your clients.

BUSINESS VALUATION & FORENSIC ACCOUNTING

If you require an independent, professional business valuation, we can help.

We can also do much more than that and regularly support litigation with Antony Fanshawe’s forensic accounting and expert witness work.

Goodness me. Didn’t you do well against all the odds – Very well done.
