RSM advises on five deals in five days

RSM’s corporate finance team has acted on five significant transactions in one week – highlighting a high volume of deal activity.

The Yorkshire-based team has advised on a range of high-profile deals, including the sale of Barnsley-based Abode Home Products, a niche bathroom designer and distributor to Norcros PLC, a market leading bathroom supplier; the disposal of JSC International, a Harrogate-based business providing consultancy services to the chemical sector, to ERM, a sustainability consultancy with revenues of circa $1bn; and the acquisition by Solingen Private Equity of Burgess Diagnostics Limited, a provider of mobile imaging services to the veterinary sector.

Steve Hubbard, corporate finance partner at RSM, said:

‘It’s been an eventful start to the financial year with five deals completing in the space of a week. There is currently a good level of activity in the local market and our busy week demonstrates that the strong and experienced team at RSM is able to work on multiple completions simultaneously.

‘Our pipeline looks good, and despite a challenging economic landscape there is real optimism in the Yorkshire market that the uplift in activity is sustainable.’

RSM continues to invest in the corporate finance practice following the recent partner promotions of Steve Hubbard based in Leeds and Simon Martin in London.
