Taking a family business through acquisition

Taking a family business through acquisition

DATE: 6 March 2019
TIME: 18:30 - 20:30
VENUE: The Jockey Club Rooms, Newmarket

The next Private Markets Dinner will take place in the historic surroundings of The Jockey Club Rooms, Newmarket.  The event is hosted by Bailey Fisher Executive Search in partnership with Farrer & Co and PwC UK.  Attendance is by invitation for a select group of business leaders from amongst the region’s foremost family firms.

Our guest speaker is Barry Chevallier Guild of Aspall Cyder.  Barry will talk about the process of family business undergoing a trade sale.  In 2018 the iconic cyder brand was acquired by Molson Coors, bringing together two companies with a passion for building extraordinary brands, and with similar family-oriented ownership structures.

Since Clement Chevallier started crafting cyder at Aspall Hall in 1728, the “pip to pour” family business has thrived with the eighth generation of the family now planting apple trees on the estate, continuing the tradition of pressing, fermenting, kegging and bottling that has flourished through most of modern history.

Barry will share his thoughts on the reality of a family business preparing for and undergoing acquisition. There will be plenty of time for questions over dinner.
