Johnston Carmichael’s Corporate Finance team has recently provided financial and tax due diligence services to Nevis Capital LLP ("Nevis Capital") on their recent investment into Pump Action Limited (“Pump Action”).

Pump Action operates from its headquarters in Edinburgh, with additional depots in Glasgow and Aberdeen, and is focused on the sale, service and installation of pumps and associated products. Its customer base is largely comprised of HVAC contractors, facility managers, and end users such as hospitals, water companies and manufacturers.

Nevis Capital acquired a 50% stake in Pump Action to support its growth across the UK, with Scott Lamont and Scott Gray, the co-founders of Pump Action, remaining with the business as directors and significant shareholders.

Nevis Capital offers an alternative to trade sale or private equity, and its team bring hands-on business experience and expertise as well as financial investment.
