Geo-Info Limited has been acquired by SML Group Limited
Geo-Info specialise in underground mapping and surveying to the rail and engineering sectors and operates across England, Ireland and Scotland.
Since inception in 2012, the company has gained several industry accreditations, shown considerable growth and engaged in numerous large, well-publicised rail projects.
Over this time the company has established a strong reputation within the industry, consistently providing a high quality, innovative service, led by an experienced team.
The shareholders of Geo-Info instructed KBS Corporate with the sale of the company in order to pursue other business interests whilst ensuring the growth of Geo-Info through the impetus of a new owner.
KBS Corporate instigated a thorough research strategy, targeting a range of buyers across both trade and private equity. Over 20 interested parties came forward, which included a mix of buyer types, including several large civil engineering and construction companies.
The ultimate acquirer was SML Group Limited, who are operating an acquisitive buy-and-build strategy and saw the acquisition of Geo-Info as an ideal opportunity to ensure the diversification of their client base, whilst also allowing for an increase in capacity, resource and geographic coverage.
Fabio Rambelli, Associate Director at KBS Corporate advised our clients on the deal, and commented, ‘It has been a pleasure working with Adrian and Niall of Geo-Info, as well as the buyers. I’m confident that Tom Harpin of SML Group will be able to successfully take Geo-Info to the next level and provide the same level of care and dedication to the company’s clients that Adrian, Niall and the rest of the Geo-Info team have previously provided. I wish all parties the best of luck with their future endeavours.’
