Thanks to ICFG UK, Lonsdale Capital Partners Invests in GIA
Founded in 1993, GIA is a tech enabled multi-disciplinary consultancy business, supporting high-profile developments in London, the UK and globally across a range of sectors. With over 130 employees the business has offices in London, Manchester, Bristol, Belfast, and Dublin.
Central to GIA’s services is their unique proprietary technology platform, Phoenix which enables complex analysis of daylight, sunlight and overshadowing leading to significant time and cost savings. Over the years, GIA have been involved in some of the UK’s most complex and significant projects, including The Shard, 20 Fenchurch Street (“The Walkie-Talkie”), The Leadenhall Building (The “Cheesegrater”) Battersea Power Station, Tottenham Hotspur stadium, Manchester’s Deansgate Square, Media City, and the Central Mental Hospital redevelopment in Dublin.
HMT provided financial modelling services to GIA on this transaction incorporating historical financial performance, key trading KPI’s to support commercial and financial due diligence, as well as a fully integrated P&L, BS and Cash Flow forecast underpinned by dynamic assumptions which could be flexed and sensitised as appropriate and a fully customisable transaction overlay.
Rob Learmonth commented:
“We are grateful for the commercial input from Motti and the HMT Team. Having their financial modelling expertise really helped to smooth the due diligence process. It’s been a pleasure dealing with HMT, who were always quick to respond to any queries or amendments required. Thank you for your input, proficiency and patience with us through the process.”
Motti Kalikstein commented:
“We are delighted to have advised GIA on a significant investment for the business. GIA’s strength as a leading expert in building consultancy is underpinned by its proprietary technology and with Lonsdale’s support the business will be able to deliver their ambitious vision. We look forward to working with them again in the future.”
