JEGI CLARITY was the sole financial advisor to the shareholders of the College Group on all aspects of the transaction from deal strategy and preparation to negotiation and transaction execution.
The College Group is an international business communications consultancy employing over 300 people in thirteen offices in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the US, with an annual turnover of £40m.
From its core practice of Business Communications, incorporating both capital markets and corporate brand building PR, The College Group has built out its service to clients into four further complementary practice areas: government and regulatory affairs; employee engagement; strategic research and branding, design, reporting and digital.
The investment from Vitruvian comes towards the end of a four-year period during which The College Group has more than trebled in size.
Selling your own business isn’t a natural skill: one is too bound up in it emotionally. The JEGI CLARITY team kept me straight on what matters and what doesn’t. That’s vital to both the vendor and the investor in achieving a positive outcome.
