Whitehead Monckton’s corporate team have advised the shareholders of Skydive (Headcorn) Limited (and related operator of the aircraft Headcorn Parachute Club Limited) (“Skydive Headcorn”) in the sale of the company’s entire issued share capital to Goskydive.com Limited (“GoSkydive”).
Skydive Headcorn has been operating out of Headcorn Airfield for many years, and has built an outstanding reputation offering skydiving activities for jumpers at the heart of Kent. This deal was the result of the sellers’ hard work and dedication over the years.
GoSkydive is the UK’s premier operator for tandem skydiving experiences, known for its exceptional customer service and focus on safety. Currently operating from Old Sarum Airfield near Salisbury and from Swansea airport, the addition of a base at Headcorn Airfield will enable GoSkydive to offer convenient access for jumpers throughout the South East.
Whitehead Monckton’s team was led by corporate senior associate Haggai Peri who advised the sellers. Speaking of the sale, Haggai Peri said, “It was a real pleasure to work with the founder and managing director David Parker, and to assist with the exit process. Our ability to understand and advise on corporate aspects, together with our experience in liaising with other legal specialists as well as accountants and tax advisers, enables us to deliver complex corporate transactions and in this case was instrumental in seeing this transaction through to completion. In the buyer GoSkydive the sellers found an excellent continuity avenue for the members of the club and more widely for the skydiving community in Kent and the South East.”
