potatoe puff crips

I will never forget junior school breaktime in the late 1950’s eating a packet of Potato Puffs, they were just amazing little bundles of potato and air and one of the first snacks to be ‘ready salted’. Previously, the inferior ‘Crisps’ had a little blue twisted bag of ‘serve yourself’ salt inside.

If you posted the tokens from the back of the packet of Potato Puffs to Burtons you got a prize back, but I can’t remember what it was – not that I am old or anything!!

reto bike

My favourite memory of youth is spending all day down the woods nearby, building Dens, climbing trees, riding tracker bikes, and playing football. We spent all day till teatime amusing ourselves with innocent fun.

No one was worried about us, it was an age where children were allowed to develop as children, without any kind of peer pressure over the clothes anyone wore etc, an age of pure innocence where everyone was seen as equal.  

-Stuart Randall

black jack sweets

Aged 7 or 8 taking the 6d weekly pocket money to the shops (on my bike but probably with friends. However, on our own) to buy sweets which included fruit salad, black jacks, aniseed balls and bubble gum (Bazooka Joe). The latter was frowned on at home!

Experts in sale, purchase, succession… and everything in between

Brokerring was created to support independent regional brokers by working with brokers of all shapes and sizes, some of whom wish to grow through acquisition, whilst others want to sell, create a slower glide path to retirement or may have succession issues they would like to resolve… all of which Brokerring can find unique solutions for and which the consolidators and other large corporates are unable to accommodate.

Are you looking to sell your business?

You only sell your business once so make sure you get the deal that you deserve.

I am delighted with the professional and personal way in which my sale has been handled by Stuart at Brokerring. If I had to pick one of the many aspects which meant so much was how trustworthy Stuart and his team were throughout. I knew that I was having to share every detail of my business with them, but I had complete confidence that it would all remain between us, just brilliant Stuart, Thank You.

Supporting growth

Our thanks to Brokerring for supporting our growth strategy. I know that without them I would not have been able to achieve a £7m increase in GWP in 18 months. Stuart & Ian working together have handled the business end of each and every deal in a focused and ethical way. I even talk about them as being my M&A department! £10m GWP, now onto £20m with their help. Thanks Brokerring​!

Hands-on support

Selling my business has been a cathartic experience but without the help of Brokerring, and particularly Ian Wainwright, this would not have happened. I am so grateful for the hands-on support throughout the process. Most people only do this once in their lives and you have no idea of the complexity of the process until you do it. Ian supported the financial, legal, and emotional elements of this. I am now delighted to be working for my buyer for a few years before hanging up my hat. Thanks, Brokerring, I can thoroughly recommend you to anyone in the same position.

Case studies

We deal with unique cases

No two cases are the same and we absolutely relish the difficult. Our experience and lateral thinking mean that we are able to deliver excellent solutions to complicated cases.


A straight sale whereby the principal needed to define his gradual exit over the next 5 years and obtain the maximum price possible for his shares whilst protecting his staff and their future.

We approached a selection of 4 consolidators with the financial capability to make a clean purchase.

We achieved the sale of the business for a multiple of 3.2 times income with an earn out that also meant any growth over the original value was also paid at 3 times income for a period of 3 years. The owner stands to earn as much from the earn out as he did from the original sale of the company – which benefits all parties, in addition, all the key staff are incentivised.

Brokerring were deeply involved on a day-to-day basis with the whole due diligence and legal process and achieved what the owner says he could never have achieved on his own.

Small brokerage which suffered from the normal challenges regarding compliance and the sheer weight of administration that exists these days, they did not wish to sell but were tired of working five days a week with no respite and no holiday cover.

We arranged a Brokerring Host/Union agreement with a local broker which means that the broker now works 2-3 days a week, has no administration worries, has holiday cover (so can actually go on holiday!), hist staff are managed by someone else and he earns 80% more that he did previously. A great result all round.
