Selling a Business Testimonial – B9 Energy O&M


Continuum acted for the shareholders on the sale of B9 Energy O&M Limited

Our expertise in acting for clients who are selling a business covers many different business sectors. In this case, we acted for B9 Energy Operation & Maintenance Limited, a long-established, family run provider of renewable energy. They are the largest independent operator of wind farms in the UK and Ireland. Currently they have 49 wind farms and a total of 750 wind turbines under contract. This testimonial is from the then director of the B9, Ian Haugh, whom we worked closely with throughput the sale process.

Selling a Business Successfully Takes Time, Effort and Commitment

We were approached by B9’s then-shareholders to facilitate its sale to Gamesa Wind UK Limited, the UK-based subsidiary of Gamesa Corporación Tecnológica, a Spanish manufacturing company involved in the fabrication of wind turbines, and the construction of wind farms. It is one of the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturers.

The sale process was managed by Continuum’s Simona Falticeanu, now one of the company’s partners. It involved her working closely with B9’s directors. The sale was completed in July 2015. Ian Haugh, then-director of the company, had this to say about our work:

“I have been working with Simona Falticeanu on the sale of our company for the past months and can only speak in the most positive and grateful terms about her contribution to the process.

 As the transaction got closer to completion Simona’s determination to find solutions, her commitment to getting the deal over the line and her unbelievable stamina were, in my view, the difference between success and failure. Her ability to transform strong and sometimes highly energetic reactions into constructive ways forward is a very special gift for a lawyer in her line of work.

I have worked with lawyers in better known, much larger firms for over 30 years and even in that company, Simona stands out uniquely in my experience.”
