Abstract

After a somewhat chequered history, this company was offered for sale as a going concern. Potential buyers were told that it had a reasonable volume of orders in hand, ample room and scope for expansion, and good prospects for the future. John Greenwood & Co Ltd asked for more details and were sent a copy of Landford's last published accounts. Their managing director asked his accountant to consider these accounts, to draw up a breakeven chart, and to make recommendations to the Board.
