Prism Corporate Broking comprises a team of experienced Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) specialists with years’ of experience working with owners of private technology companies, helping them to buy and sell businesses.

Headquartered near Cambridge, yet working throughout the UK, we are, by design, not a volume player thus enabling us to deliver a highly personalised service, uniquely tailored towards individual needs and objectives. Our business ethic is strong and trusted – telling you what you need to know, not just what you might want to hear.

We are much more than just ‘matchmakers’ – we provide extensive advice and guidance throughout the entire sale or acquisition process. Our focused business model unites knowledge, experience, dedication and continuity. And, by utilising our comprehensive databases and being well-networked in the Corporate Finance and technology worlds we are able to bring together vital facts, industry knowledge and expertise to help identify potential acquirers and sellers.

Whether you are considering buying or selling a technology business (including partial investments/divestments) Prism can help every step of the way. We frequently work with clients from an early stage, advising on options as well as exit or acquisition readiness. Our aim is to ensure you make the right decision at the right time for you.

Typically we work on transactions involving businesses within a £1m to £30m turnover range (though the vendor or acquirer can be substantially larger than this).
