Deal and more deals

Dealmakers in a North East accountancy firm’s corporate finance team have emerged as the most prolific in the region for the last six months of 2008, according to a recent report from Corpfin, part of the Experian Group.

RMT Accountants and Business Advisors, which is based in Gosforth and has one of the biggest corporate finance teams in the region, has dealt with £40million in deals over the last 12 months.

Martin Stephenson, corporate finance director at RMT, was also named as the region’s top individual dealmaker this year. He said: “I am delighted at this result. We currently have a team of eight in our corporate finance and tax team and there are further plans for expansion.

RMT has a wealth of experience in the corporate finance arena and has had a very successful year, with a number of further substantial deals also nearing completion.”

Headed up by corporate finance partner, Maxine Pott, the team has recently worked on deals including the management buy-out of Saltwell Signs Ltd in Team Valley, with funding from Alliance and Leicester. Jason Hathaway, new owner of Saltwell Signs, said: “I only want to use the best professional companies to help my company grow. RMT does not disappoint – it is a very proactive business which offers the full works.”
