Turner Butler has been appointed to invite offers of purchase for 100% of the Issued Share Capital of a business (or optionally to be a majority shareholder) and its leading brand, specialising in the overseas manufacture, export and installation of Solar PV panels to a client list of very large companies and Governments for both developed and developing markets.

Business Profile

This business is a British brand of high quality solar photovoltaic (PV) modules that has found a successful niche in targeting the growing demand for solar in emerging global markets. Although the business sells its products within the UK and other parts of Europe, it has seen emerging solar markets in Asia, the Middle East, the Americas and Africa as a major growth potential and the bulk of orders already come from these markets. Aggressive pricing and strong branding has generated regular orders in over 30 countries despite a modest marketing budget.

The vendor established the business in 2015 after noticing that there did not seem to be a British brand of solar PV module in international markets. The vendor has many years experience in this sector having previously worked as an International Sales Director for a leading German solar brand. He established this brand in many countries in South East Asia and Africa and it is this wealth of international business development experience in the sector that has played a part in the formation and early success of this business.

The business is still in early growth mode and has already sold its products in over 30 countries around the world and the resource demands for continued growth have exceeded the vendor’s ability to keep pace and so wishes to leverage this early success and massive growth potential, to be the leading British global brand of solar panels by seeking a fast sale of 1OO% of the company s equity or fund a majority equity stake. The vendor is willing to stay on after the sale with the existing British sales and administration team, to ensure an efficient handover.

Key strengths:

The business offers the following opportunities:

• Chance to own a fast-growing British brand of solar panels with tremendous growth potential for million-dollar sales for MW projects. $1.4m sale completed already.
• The only British solar brand in international markets.
• The UK’s number one exporter of solar panels globally.
• Acquire new customers in over 30 countries in 4 continents.
• Well managed with low overheads and running costs.
• Outsourced factory partners in China, Dubai and Spain providing unlimited capacity and easy low-cost shipping to global markets.
• Take control of British bank accounts in Pounds, US Dollars and Euros.
• Knowledgable and trusted management.
• Exiting sales pipeline with regular customers placing monthly orders.
• Opportunities to win larger $m MW project orders.

Distributors worldwide are attracted by a trust-worthy British warranty, competitive pricing, fast shipping, unique British branding, customer support and a warranty backed in the UK by a British company. Larger distributors are offered exclusivity for their territory.

The Company provides an acquirer already operating within the renewable energy sector with an excellent opportunity to “bolt-on” a unique British manufacturing brand.

Financial performance:

For the financial year ending March 2018, the business achieved a turnover of circa £1,896,000, generating a gross profit of circa £413,000 and pre-tax net operating losses of circa £122,000.

The Asking Price of £250,000 is for a sale of 100% of the Issued Share Capital of the company based on a Balance Sheet value of liabilities circa (£122,000). There will be a £ for £ adjustment to the asking price to reflect any rise or fall in this net liabilities position as at completion.
