We are delighted to have advised Freshstream on their investment into MCR Group

MCR is a leading provider of cleaning, security, engineering and personnel services in Ireland. The company serves a diversified, longstanding client base across various sectors including commercial, pharmaceutical, construction, retail and public sector. 

Through Freshstream’s financial backing and their hands-on support and expertise in working with owner managed businesses, MCR’s management team will be able to accelerate its ambitious expansion plans.

We were appointed by Freshstream based on our extensive track record in the facilities management sector. Our M&A advisory, financial modelling and diligence teams worked closely with Freshstream to evaluate the opportunity, assess their strategic options and ultimately deliver a successful transaction.

We provided Freshstream with a range of integrated buy-side advisory services including M&A advisory, financial modelling and financial, tax and IT due diligence. Our ‘one-stop-shop’ approach and market-leading sector knowledge ensured a smooth transaction through to completion.

Usman B Malik, Corporate Finance M&A Partner at Grant Thornton, commented: “It was a pleasure advising on this transaction and we believe this is an excellent result for both Freshstream and MCR. MCR is an exciting, fast growing player in the market with great potential for further expansion leveraging the backing of Freshstream. We look forward to supporting the business and their new shareholders again in future.”


We were delighted with the sector-led and integrated support that Grant Thornton’s Business Services team provided across M&A advisory, financial diligence and financial modelling. Their in-depth understanding of the market provided significant value to us in both evaluating the opportunity and successfully executing the transaction.

Giuseppe Silvestri Partner, Freshstream
