Business Services


The Business Services sector covers a number of activities. Whilst in general the sector has been performing well, business owners are still facing their own set of challenges and are under pressure to grow their businesses in line with expected forecasts.

M&A activity within the Business Services sector has been healthy throughout the past year with consistent interest from Private Equity investors and strategic acquirers looking to invest in businesses with a unique proposition and strong recurring revenues.

The Spectrum team has advised on a number of significant deals in the Business Services sector. Our past deal experience and current areas of expertise include:

  • Outsourcing services
  • Online services e.g. employee benefits
  • Maintenance providers e.g. ground and landscape
  • Compliance, risk management and certification services
  • Water treatment, drainage and sewage cleansing
  • Logistics
  • Consultancy
  • HR and recruitment
  • Legal services

“We have worked with Spectrum over a number of years to position the business for this sale process, and to position us for our next phase of development and growth. The Spectrum team of Simon, Ian and James supported us superbly throughout what was a complex transaction, offering pragmatic and professional advice, often mixed with great humour when required! We are delighted with the outcome, and to be working alongside Baird Capital to develop the business further and serve our valued client base.” Guy Rowley, CEO, Clearwater Group plc
