KBS Corporate Oversees Sale of Proserve Logistics
Proserve Logistics is a highly regarded provider of warehousing and transportation services for clients operating in a diverse range of industry sectors. Since the company began trading in 2008, they have developed an excellent reputation which has enabled it to build and maintain strong, long-standing relationships with its clients, several of which span over 12 years.
The current shareholders of Proserve Logistics approached KBS Corporate to help them eventually realise their retirement plans. As a result, it became apparent during initial discussions to pursue a structure that would allow them to capture value from future growth.
KBS Corporate was able to generate extensive trade, and some private equity interest due to the expansion that the logistics industry experienced post covid. The opportunity attracted 31 interested parties and several offers. The successful offer came from Northwest Logistics Ltd, as part of their warehousing operations and geographic footprint.
KBS Corporate was able to negotiate a deal that enables the current shareholders to release equity and capture future value through an earnout structure, with an eventual exit within two and a half years.
George Barnes, KBS Corporate Associate Corporate Director, advised Proserve Logistics.
