We are delighted to have advised IMC Worldwide Limited on their sale to DT Global Inc.
IMC Worldwide is an award winning leading international development consultancy focusing on delivering large and complex sustainable infrastructure projects in developing countries across the globe. Headquartered in the UK with subsidiaries in the USA and Spain, IMC has created a unique position in the market due to its established presence globally together with its long-term relationships with key funding partners such as Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (‘FCDO’), USAID and the EU.
Following a successful management buy-out in 2011 and with project sizes increasing and clients requiring a truly global solution, IMC was at an inflection point and the company was perfectly positioned for a purchaser to take full advantage of IMC’s strategic market position.
Given the broad appeal of IMC’s client base and service offering, we approached a range of international trade parties. Following a highly competitive global process, DT Global was chosen as the preferred party due to their ability to demonstrate a clear strategic rationale and their ambitious vision in creating a truly global, diversified, and innovative international development business.
We provided full lead advisory services, supporting the business in preparing to go to market. We ran an efficient and competitive process, managing a number of interested global parties. Despite the challenges of a truly international deal, we secured a deal solution that met all the shareholders’ ambitions with a strategic buyer who will provide significant opportunities for management and IMC employees.
As our lead deal advisor Grant Thornton have been exceptional throughout, professional, focussed and responsive to our needs. They offered high quality advice and anticipated and responded to issues and challenges as they arose to ensure the deal progressed to completion. Nigel and Lewis project managed the deal and all of the advisors effectively, clearly communicated progress and were fun to work with. A great choice as our deal advisors.Gavin English Managing Director, IMCW Holdings Limited
