Bluebox advises on the sale of Vision Hospitality Asset Management

Bluebox Corporate Finance is delighted to announce the sale of Vision Hospitality Asset Management (Vision), one of Europe’s leading hospitality asset management companies to Colliers International (Colliers), a global leader in commercial real estate services. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Founded in 2001, Vision is the leading asset management consultancy within the hospitality sector; providing independent advice to investors, property owners, funders and operators across Europe and the Middle East.  The business has managed over 100 assets ranging from individual properties to far larger portfolios.

The acquisition provides a new dimension of asset management for Colliers and significant opportunity for further International growth. Vision will be integrated into Colliers International’s existing Hotel Property Services operation increasing its scale and capabilities throughout the UK.

Clive Hillier, CEO of Vision added: “Joining forces with Colliers enables us to better meet our clients’ needs and take the next strategic steps in our business. With Bluebox’s expert advice we were able to find the right buyer that will benefit our business strategically. We’re delighted with the outcome and look forward to starting our new chapter”.

Jonathan Rich, Director of Bluebox commented: “Vision is a market leader in the hospitality asset management sector, and we are delighted to have worked with the shareholders in securing a successful outcome.  Having worked with the shareholders of Vision through our Blue Diamond programme, this transaction provides yet another example of the value that thorough preparation brings to the corporate finance process.”

About Bluebox:

Bluebox Corporate Finance was founded in mid-2012 by Paul Herman and James Caan, one of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs and a former panellist on Dragon’s Den. The 26-strong team now includes qualified, experienced individuals offering market-leading advice to clients.

In mid-2015, Bluebox was invited to join M&A Worldwide, one of the world’s leading mid-market M&A networks which provides their clients with unique and unparalleled access to a global audience of International acquirers that are interested in acquiring in, and investing in, UK based businesses.

The Bluebox philosophy is to engage with their clients early – often 24 months before a sale – and assist them in preparing their business for sale over that period before providing advice on the sale itself. Bluebox also assists with fund raising activities and other ancillary services. The Company uses their own bespoke methodology, ‘Blue Diamond’, to work with clients in the run up to their sale.
