Carolyn Douthwaite, Founder and Executive Chair, PiR Interims
The Rebound Group is a privately-owned international trading group with sales offices in 15 countries and group directors resident in both the UK and Europe. Our remit to RM2 was to design and implement an EMI (Enterprise Management Incentive) for one director and leading employees, enable a director share buy-in and ensure that two key minority shareholders retained their percentage stake in the company. In all our dealings with RM2 from initial discussions on alternative solutions through implementation and post-care, we found all staff extremely knowledgable, clear in advice given and seamless throughout the implementation which finally involved a reorganisation of shares, a company valuation agreed with HMRC and all paperwork and documentation related to the project. We were impressed by the competence and service level shown throughout and would highly recommend RM2 as an excellent partner in this field.

RM2’s technical expertise continues to help m3 by combining the delivery and understanding of the Enterprise Management Incentive scheme and then translating the jargon into an understandable language so that both the company and the participants can make full benefit of the opportunities.
James Oliver, Managing Director, m³
Clearly there is a lot of experience at RM2 that is made available to their clients. It was great to be able to meet with Geoff at the beginning of the process and explore the ways we could work together. The complication with our project was also that we had to comply with the rules of the Global bioMerieux Share Plan. RM2 have directly worked with Corporate and the Partner bank in France with little involvement from myself. The solution implemented is perfect for bioMerieux and the Launch was a real success. As a conclusion, only positive things to say and I would really recommend RM2 to other businesses with similar projects.
Ivan Chermarin, Finance and Administration Manager, BioMerieux UK Ltd
We found RM2 to be professional, inventive and good to work with.
Paul Dunne, Commercial Director, Foster Denovo Limited
We were first recommended to RM2 as specialists in helping companies design, implement and maintain share based incentive schemes. We have found them to be knowledgeable and technically capable. In our case RM2 had to draft a plan that not only met the directors' aspirations but also was acceptable to our US owners. They now continue to administer our scheme which means this is one less thing for the FD to worry about!
