Mincoffs Solicitors advise on Software Company MBO25/01/2019
A newly formed software company has purchased three business divisions from international banking software company Tenemos as part of a management buyout, with advice from the award winning corporate team at Mincoffs Solicitors.
Genisys Technology Solutions Limited, set up by Managing Director Gary Sawyer, has purchased the FGG businesses comprising of three separate software divisions (Genisys Technology Document Management, Fairs IFA Management and GVAS property management) from Temenos, who originally acquired them as part of the purchase of UK based company Financial Objects in 2008.
Gary Sawyer, Managing Director of Genisys Technology Solutions Limited, who has been with the divisions since 1994 commented: “This is a huge opportunity for the management team to now drive this business forward. Becoming independent gives us new focus and allows us the flexibility we need to ensure our software products and services show continuous improvement. We received superb service and excellent advice from Chris Hughes and Mincoffs and the new company is already off to a firm start with a very strong and supportive client base.”
Chris Hughes, Associate Solicitor in Mincoffs Solicitors’ Corporate team who advised on the transaction commented: “We were delighted to advise Gary and the management team on the MBO. Gary has over 20 years’ service with the businesses and has a clear vision for their future. It is great to see that the company is off to a good start with a healthy renewable income stream and a strong capital reserve and we are thrilled that all staff were able to be transferred and retained and that they are all supportive of the MBO. We wish Gary and the team the best of luck for the future and look forward to growing with them.”
Genisys Technology Solutions will relocate to new offices in Team Valley in March.
