Victanis has recently supported multi-disciplinary provider of compliance and certification services, Alcumus, with its acquisition of SM&MS, a health & safety and environmental services provider. The acquisition of SM&MS further accelerates Alcumus’ penetration of legislation-driven compliance markets, particularly around property & workplace risk.
Based in Huddersfield, SM&MS offers a wide range of services to assist clients in property management with their compliance requirements, such as fire safety, asbestos management and health and safety consultancy. The company has also developed a number of online compliance solutions that can be used at both individual properties and across multiple sites.
Victanis' specialist Testing, Inspection and Certification team delivered comprehensive commercial due diligence on all aspects of SM&MS to enable the refinancing of Sovereign Capital’s investment in Alcumus. The refinancing was completed in December 2014 with debt provided by Alcentra.
“The Victanis team has worked with Alcumus to support a number of our acquisitions and more recently the acquisition of SM&MS and the recent refinancing with Alcentra. They provide solid strategic insight into our various markets and services and always deliver insightful and meaningful due diligence including strategic recommendations that enrich our business plan.”
Martin Smith, CEO of Alcumus
