“PSL was a great partner when we decided to sell our company: Tim and James were extremely engaged in the whole process – which started with creating a company pack, getting in contact with potential buyers, starting a bidding process and going through the due diligence. Their experience in that field of business and their know-how, together with their network and of course also their great personality makes PSL to an unique and excellent consultancy.”

CliniSciences has had a close relationship with Pivotal Scientific for many years and during that time we have seen them successfully partner a number of companies as part of their acquisitions service. When CliniSciences decided we wanted to acquire a distributor in the United Kingdom it was an easy decision to approach Pivotal Scientific to give us a detailed overview of the market. Pivotal then worked closely with us to identify companies that were within our target revenue range and approach them confidentially on our behalf. Once we had a shortlist we were introduced directly to the companies to continue the discussions.

In February of 2016 CliniSciences was able to finalise our acquisition of Generon. We have been extremely happy with the relationship we have developed with Generon and look forward to helping them grow over the coming years. We are very grateful to Pivotal Scientific to the support they gave to CliniSciences and we will definitely use them again.”

Acris Antibodies has been working with PSL and Tim Bernard for many years. In that time they have helped us in many ways, not the least in helping us to reorganize our distribution network and in mediating the merger of Acris Antibodies into the OriGene family just this year. PSL have done a really great job – thank you!
