JEGI CLARITY acted as sole corporate finance advisor to all shareholders of Briefing Media on their sale to Lyceum Capital.

Briefing Media is the leading provider of business information and marketing solutions to the UK agricultural sector.

The company has grown very rapidly in recent years and today reaches in excess of 250,000 people across multiple platforms through its industry leading brands which include Farmers Guardian, Arable Farmer, Dairy Farmer, LAMMA, Croptec and Agrimoney.

With the backing of Lyceum Capital, Briefing Media will accelerate its growth strategy through broadening its reach, rolling out additional services, international expansion, as well as through the selective acquisitions of complementary businesses.

JEGI CLARITY took great trouble to really understand our business before preparing a deal process strategy. They have managed a complex process with multiple bidders in a thorough, methodical and highly professional manner. I am delighted with the outcome for both our exiting and new investors. Thanks in large part to JEGI CLARITY, our business is well positioned for the next phase of growth.

Neil Thackray, CEO, Briefing Media
