Business Overview

Vexus is exclusively retained to find a buyer for this established further education, higher education & apprenticeship training consultancy business. For over 5 years our client has been a Further Education, Higher Education, and Apprenticeship provider, with direct contracts with the Education Funding Agency (EFA) and the Skills Funding Agency (SFA). Our client is one of the leading independent providers of Apprenticeships in the South; they are listed in both sections of the Register of Training Organisations (ROTO).

Established, Scalable, Profitable Opportunity

  • 5+ years of strong reputation & goodwill
  • Business Intellectual Property
  • Wide range of FE, HE Courses & Apprenticeships
  • Industry Leader
  • Buoyant Market
  • Ideal bolt-on to existing training or consultancy business

Reason for Sale

The current business owner has been running the company for over 5 years and now feels that the business would benefit from becoming part of a larger organization with the expertise and resources to take the opportunity to the next level.

Sales Revenue £300,000 £535,000 £545,000 £1,400,000
Gross Profit £300,000 £535,000 £545,000 £1,100,000

The increased 2017 sales revenue projections demonstrate substantial growth, which is due to the business winning several significant new contracts. The revenue uplift underpins future performance at this level, if not higher.
