What clients say about us?
“At all times we were impressed by the diligent way in which Pat Sutton and his colleagues carried out their due diligence work in order to arrive at a market valuation, how quick they were to understand our complex group with 400 employees and many companies, active in 3 different countries. A striking fact was the constructive and objective way of working with us, even when they were finally retained by an investor who successfully invested into our Holding Company. We have no hesitation in highly recommending O’Kelly Sutton as accountants and business consultants for any complex financial or corporate finance work”

“BioTector Analytical Systems Ltd. have been the beneficiary of ongoing support from O’Kelly Sutton on matters of strategic and financial advice throughout my period as both Managing Director and then Chairman of the company while in private ownership. This relationship commenced in the late 90's when as a start-up business the company undertook its first strategic development programme led by O’Kelly Sutton. The success and growth of the company resulting from this initial programme led to a number of further strategic development programmes run by O’Kelly Sutton over the following 18 years.
O’Kelly Sutton also acted as advisers to the Company in negotiating an early-stage significant distribution agreement with a major international Distributor.
When the shareholders were approached regarding a possible acquisition it was only natural that we turned to O’Kelly Sutton for advice and guidance. O’Kelly Sutton helped to establish a fair but aggressive market valuation and produced a professional comprehensive Information Memorandum which became the foundation document for further negotiations.
O’Kelly Sutton's help and support to the Shareholders throughout the complex discussions were invaluable and contributed significantly to the successful outcome of the negotiations.
O’Kelly Sutton continues to advise me on a personal level, with regard to investments opportunities and management of same”

“As a start-up looking to raise substantial funds, it was important that we retained experienced and credible corporate financial advisors with a proven track record to help us roll out our business plan. Having now gone through two successful fund-raising rounds in a very difficult 2020 we were very glad we engaged O’Kelly Sutton. They presented well thought out and compelling valuation methodologies to potential investors. We are happy to report we have just successfully concluded a second funding raising round where we secured a further €2m investment”.
