Serial entrepreneur Andy Scott, who has just achieved his tenth corporate takeover in two years with the acquisition of national haulage firm Bison Transport Group, announced today that he has funding in place to purchase six more companies and actively seeks further investments.
Bison, which owns and operates 50 trucks from two depots with a £12 million turnover, is the latest in a list of takeovers which includes London-based Contraband Events, one of UK’s largest entertainment agencies, a group of London pubs including The Chelsea Lodge and The Chelsea Pig, and a portfolio of leisure and construction recruitment businesses based out of London, Ipswich and Manchester.
Helen Wong MBE, partner at Clarke Willmott LLP, who led the team providing Scott’s legal support on all these deals, said: “In just two years Andy Scott has built a sizeable portfolio of complementary businesses, creating good synergies and centralised systems.
“He is a true entrepreneur, and I hugely respect his commercial acumen to turn around and maximise profitability in the target companies he acquires. We wish him much continued success and prosperity.”
