Osborne Clarke breakfast seminar 11th March
As the UK and global economies strengthen, the outlook for staffing and recruitment companies is looking very positive. Not surprisingly M&A seems to be on the increase with growing interest in the recruitment sector from trade and private equity buyers.
But buyers are generally more risk averse than most “growth” companies. Part of the key for a successful exit is to bridge that gap so that a seller is confident that the deal won’t fall at the last fence, and a buyer is confident that what it buys has sustainable value.
This means that if potential sellers are going to survive due diligence and go on to receive full payment, they need to lock in key billers tax efficiently, move away from risky tax arrangements, avoid compliance howlers, and comply (without breaking the bank) with local regulations in new territories. This will help them stand out to a potential trade buyer or institutional investor.
If you are working towards exit in 1-4 years’ time the following measures will help you achieve optimum value:
• Industry aware share schemes to incentivise and retain key staff,
• best practice corporate structures,
• up to date restrictions on competition by ex-employees,
• insurable commercial contracts,
• new generation contractor tax schemes, and
• best practice international compliance
