As a market-leading provider of technology-focused business assurance and compliance risk management solutions, Alcumus serves 35% of the FTSE 100, providing services which are critical to worker protection and compliance with UK regulations and internationally recognised standards. Alcumus was created by bringing together six companies through a focused buy and build programme. The UK market was valued at up to £1bn in a global market over £10bn and was is forecast to grow by up to 10% per annum at the time of our investment. Alcumus’ acquisitions have strengthened its market position, with the business now extremely well placed to take advantage of future consolidation opportunities.
The Inflexion difference
Inflexion’s rich experience with growth through acquisitions and working with management teams to consolidate fragmented markets makes it well placed to support Alcumus’ growth plans. Just nine weeks after the initial buyout, Inflexion supported Alcumus in its £47m acquisition of Santia, one of the UK’s leading providers of integrated health & safety and environment risk management services. We have helped integrate the businesses, including realising revenue and cost synergies, and continue to evaluate selected acquisition opportunities.
Inflexion were instrumental in the acquisition of Santia which completed just nine weeks after original Alcumus deal. Since then they have been a tremendous help in integrating and developing the businesses. We are now working closely with Inflexion to evaluate further potential add-on opportunities.
