KBS Corporate Oversee Acquisition of Rosse Systems Limited
Rosse Systems Limited is a reputable, independent organisation, supplying and installing a comprehensive range of fire alarms and security systems. The company maintains strong, long-standing relationships with its clients, several of which span over 25 years. Rosse Systems Limited has received a number of industry-standard accreditations and has been formally awarded ISO 9001:2015 certification, highlighting its dedication to delivering a high standard of work across all projects.
The shareholders of Rosse Systems Limited instructed KBS Corporate with the sale of their business in order to realise their retirement plans.
During initial discussions it also became apparent that the shareholders were keen to also enable further company growth whilst protecting the current client base and staff. This led KBS Corporate to implement a research strategy with a primary focus on sourcing a UK trade buyer.
This approach attracted 59 interested parties, the majority of whom came from UK trade buyers. This led to 6 offers with interest from trade and investment. The successful offer came from Checkmate Fire Solutions Limited, a passive fire protection specialist. The acquisition will enable Checkmate Fire Solutions Limited additional growth and expansion of product offering to include fire alarms, emergency lighting, CCTV, intruder alarms, access control, call systems, wireless systems, alarm monitoring, fire extinguishers and fire risk assessments.
Rosse Systems Limited was advised by KBS Corporate Associate Director, Fabio Rambelli.
