Cardiff-based Lexington Corporate Finance has advised on more than £150m-worth of big-league transactions in the past 12 months, its first notable foray into the motorcycle trade among them.

A mergers and acquisitions (M&A) specialist, which also provides advice on company sales, debt and growth funding, Lexington has been involved in nine major deals across the UK since September 2021.  These included the purchase of Thunder Road Motorcycles — one of the largest bike dealerships in the region with showrooms in Bridgend, Cwmbran and Gloucester — by Completely Motoring Group.

Explaining his firm’s good fortune, Lexington managing director Gary Partridge said: “Despite a tough couple of years as a result of the pandemic, the M&A market enjoyed a period of resurgence. Well-capitalised companies and investors looking for growth opportunities coincided with many business owners reflecting on their personal futures and taking the decision to bring forward exit plans. The Lexington team was ready to support such owners and use our transaction expertise to deliver positive results.”

Partridge added: “Given current economic uncertainty, M&A over the next 12 months will be subject to more scrutiny and diligence, which is why having an experienced team of corporate finance specialists is even more important than ever. We believe our deal craft sets us apart from the competition.”
