EMW is delighted to announce that it has advised Xmo Strata Limited on the establishment of an employee ownership trust and the subsequent sale of the company to that trust.
Xmo Strata Limited are experts in the installation and maintenance of all types of signs in the UK with an admirable customer list. Steve Martin has managed and owned the company since 2002 and when looking at succession routes, considered a share sale to an employee ownership trust aligned well with the longstanding values of the company and the best option both for him and the employees.
Steve will continue to be involved in the company and commented:
“The support and service levels received by the EMW team was impeccable; every step was explained clearly, in language that I could understand and this made the process very easy for me at a time when we were at our busiest. Tracy and her team were there every step of the way and I would highly recommend them to anyone else thinking of establishing an EOT”
The EMW team was led by Tracy Evans, Principal in the Corporate team. Tracy was assisted by Sarah Simon and Kate Baggs. Also advising Xmo Strata Limited was Kingsley Tedder, founder of Mobius Group.
