Ampa launches new Midlands strategic advisory consultancy.

Leading legal and professional services group Ampa has launched new corporate finance boutique Coadax, as part of its ongoing growth plan.

Headed up by highly experienced corporate finance advisor Mukesh Bulsara, the new non-legal consultancy will support a broad spectrum of clients across the Midlands including SMEs and owner managed businesses (OMBs), providing professional advice on mergers and acquisitions (M&A), management buyouts (MBOs), finance raising, valuations, and strategic planning.

With more than 25 years’ corporate finance experience working for Deloitte, EY, RSM Bentley Jennison and MHA MacIntyre Hudson, Mukesh has advised on wide-ranging sector transactions with a large volume of cross-border deals.

Mukesh, lead partner at Coadax, said: “I’ve been helping businesses from across the Midlands and beyond achieve their strategic objectives - whether that be growth, buy-out or exit for over 25 years and I’m excited to now be heading up Coadax as part of the wider Ampa group.

Our approach at Coadax is collaborative, hands-on and transparent; we work on a deal or strategy from start to finish and connect clients with other trusted advisors, from legal experts to investors, who can also support them in reaching their ambitions.

The new consultancy becomes the third non-legal brand within Ampa, sitting alongside planning experts Marrons and cyber security company CSS Assure to support businesses throughout all stages of their development.

Group CEO of Ampa, Sarah Walker-Smith said: “We’re thrilled to have Mukesh lead our new strategic consultancy brand. He has great experience, huge credibility and excellent connections across the Midlands.

As we continue to develop the Ampa group we are fulfilling our commitments to support businesses at every stage of their lifecycle, Coadax is a clear fit for helping us to meet the needs of clients across the group and wider business community.

Coadax operates across a range of sectors including manufacturing and engineering, healthcare, technology, business services and consumer products.
