Andy Ryder, Corporate Finance Partner with Shorts comments: “We are delighted to have advised Stacy on the successful completion of this transaction.  This transaction required key support on tax (David Robinson) as well as corporate finance (Adam Ames) and great teamwork between ourselves, Stacy, Keebles and NatWest. We look forward to seeing Stacy continue to grow the business.”

Steve Mayor, Relationship Director at NatWest’s South Yorkshire Commercial Office added: “We are delighted to assist Stacy with funding to complete the MBO of Bullseye and are confident the business will progress under his leadership.  It has been a pleasure to work with local professionals on the deal and we wish Stacy every success for the future.”
