The NDA Acquisition Plan

We are working with a leading private equity investor to find and acquire up to 12 primarily lettings businesses every year for the next 5 years. This is not really any different from what we have already been doing for the last 8 years while at the UK’s largest property service group.

In our first 6 months we acquired 3 large businesses creating a network of 30+ branches and 300+ employees, we also have surveying, financial services and property maintenance businesses within the group.

However, this time we are only looking for businesses that come with good and established management teams, so that they can continue to grow through further acquisition of their local competitors as and when they wish to sell, with the same management teams sharing in the upsides those acquisitions bring.

Stop Press: Feb 1st 2017 –  Nick Dunning Associates completed its first large scale acquisition with the purchase of London and Home Counties Letting and Sales agency Badger Holdings. Find out more.
