ABGI UK seeking ‘new opportunities’ following MSC Associates acquisition


Innovation advisor ABGI UK is seeking new acquisition opportunities after completing the integration of Hereford-based R&D tax relief specialist, MSC Associates.

ABGI UK, part of the ABGI Group, one of the world’s leading tax incentive and innovation management advisors, advises clients across the UK through its network of regional offices. Earlier this year the company acquired MSC, a firm established in 2012 by Mick Merrick, Steve Crooks and Chris Pinches, exclusively focused on managing clients’ R&D tax relief claims.

With MSC’s operations, including the seamless transition of client services, now integrated into its new owner’s business, ABGI UK has announced it is looking at further acquisitions to fuel its growth plans.

Scott Henderson, Chief Executive of ABGI UK said: “ABGI UK continues to go from strength to strength. Following our successful acquisition and integration of MSC, whose founding directors worked closely with us before exiting the business, we are seeking new opportunities for growth across the UK.

“In addition to drive further organic growth – we’ve generated a 100% increase in new business over the last year – we are also interested in businesses like MSC which share our solid infrastructure as well as high service standards and close client relationships. Where we find an ideal fit and close cultural alignment, we will be looking to make further acquisitions going forward.

“At a time of economic uncertainty, more and more UK businesses will need to focus on innovation and also ensure they secure the many support measures that are available to help them in that process. This funding for innovation is now critical to businesses emerging from the pandemic and facing a potential impact from Brexit at the end of this year. This challenging environment creates significant growth opportunities for high quality advisory businesses like ours.”

Orthodontists Associates of WNY To Offer No Cost Virtual Consultations Adhering To & Encouraging Social Distancing In The Time of COVID-19


WESTERN NEW YORK ORTHODONTIC PRACTICE BRINGS TWENTY-SEVEN YEARS OF EXPERTISE TO PATIENTS LIVING ROOM COUCH

BUFFALO, N.Y., April 23, 2020— Orthodontists Associates of Western New York (WNY), the clear choice for orthodontic care in Western New York, announced this week that they will offer virtual consultations at no cost to continue serving new and existing patients during the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. The doctors and staff at Orthodontists Associates of WNY continue to monitor all ongoing and changing information as well as recommendations from experts in their field and their governing bodies with regard to COVID-19.

Since 1993, Orthodontists Associates of WNY have provided area residents with the highest quality top-rated orthodontic care. With five offices located in Hamburg, Olean, Lancaster, Orchard Park, and Dunkirk, New York, the practice has been a constant in the lives of thousands of patients. In this time where normalcy has gone topsy turvy, the comfort of a routine Orthodontist visit can provide both structure and a balm to patients. Though all dental and orthodontic offices are closed by mandate to stop the spread of the Coronavirus, Orthodontists Associates of WNY have found a way to adapt in order to continue to serve their community. Virtual consultations are recommended by the CDC as the best way to obtain orthodontic care while avoiding exposure and stopping the spread of the coronavirus.

Using SmileSnap and Zoom video conferencing software, the virtual consultation process is easy and user-friendly. Patients simply snap a few pictures with their mobile phone and proceed to answer a few online questions, so the orthodontic team has everything they need to provide an initial consultation. During the assessment, doctors will review the pictures and information submitted and discuss their findings and recommendations. There may be some additional questions to help doctors better understand patient goals and dental history. At that point, types of orthodontic treatment are recommended, and all your questions are answered about how long the treatment will take, as well as costs associated with the treatments. The entire assessment is free of charge and there is no obligation to proceed with treatment.

Additional services provided by Orthodontists Associates of WNY include Early Treatment Orthodontics, Clear Braces, Invisalign®, Dentofacial Orthopedics, Surgical Orthodontics, Craniofacial Orthodontics, Sleep Apnea, Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs), and i-CAT®/CBCT digital imaging.

Maintaining contact with the community, setting up day-to-day appointments, and enjoying face to face virtual contact are some of the ways experts recommend citizens of all countries and locales navigate these unprecedented times for continued mental health and routine.
