Rockworth named in Deal of the Year shortlist
Our work on the sale of Easby to NVM has been recognised by Insider Media’s Dealmakers Awards.
We are delighted to announce that Rockworth is on the shortlist for this year’s Insider Media Dealmakers Awards.
The MBO of Easby Group, backed by NVM Private Equity, has been nominated in the £20m+ ‘Deal of the Year’ category. Rockworth is on the shortlist with firms including Squire Patton Boggs and Thrings, who also worked on the transaction.
We’re proud to see the Easby deal appear alongside a number of other successful transactions, including deals completed by the likes of BGF, LDC and Centrica. The full shortlist for the awards can be found here, and the winners will be announced at an event on the 15th September.
Easby Group is a UK franchised distributor of components and a service provider in the electronics supply chain. Before the deal, the company was owned by Rebound Electronics, a global electronics business that specialises in resolving supply chain challenges. Rebound’s shareholders engaged Rockworth as lead advisor, to explore options for carving out Easby Group and lead the transaction process.
The MBO deal has allowed both Rebound and Easby to focus on their core strategies.
Speaking at the time of the transaction, Nigel Copely, CEO of Easby Group said; “It’s been a long journey from our first internal discussions to completion of this MBO. There has been a lot to learn along the way, and a number of highs and lows. The management team and I have been grateful for Rockworth’s support throughout. I am now looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for the business – exciting times.”
