Helping businesses to grow
restructing insolvency support SME

Having already managed many business sales, Opus wanted to deliver dedicated support for clients looking to grow through acquisition as well as helping clients looking for a viable exit option. Precision Opus was formed as a Corporate Finance division of the business to deliver lead advisory for both merger and acquisition services across the full spectrum of market sectors.

Opus Equity is formed

Recognising a need in the market, Opus Equity was established to provide turnaround and investment capital. Whilst this support was initially identified for distressed business that had immediate funding issues, the service broadened to businesses in need of working capital, development capital or stakeholders seeking exit options.

The inception of Opus
