About the deal

Rickitt Mitchell advised NCC Group on the acquisition of Warrington based card services auditing and assurance company Meridian Services International Limited in a cash-only deal that could be worth up to £3m. NCC Group will pay an initial £1.1m upon completion with two further payments of up to £1.9m against performance related targets over the next 26 months, all of which will be financed from the Group’s existing debt facilities and internally generated cashflow.

"This acquisition is an important step as Meridian's broad range of services, extensive expertise and credentials complement and strengthen the existing offerings for information security, auditing and compliance, an area where we have seen significant growth and where we have a strategy to become a market leader."
