January deal round-up

January deal round-up

Beginning 2023, GS Verde's dealmaking team has maintained the positive trajectory from last year and continues to drive growth this month.

We are off to a flying start in 2023, with several deals completed at dynamic and fast-growing industries worth a combined total of over £14m.

Here, we explore some of the highlight deals from the month.

Pensord Print Group sold to S&G

The award-winning Pensord Print Group was acquired by Stephens & George Print Group - a fourth generation business with bases in South Wales, London, and Glasgow.

For both businesses, the deal strengthens their service offering, resources and technologies, helping to futureproof operations.

"The proximity of the two groups, operating in the same space, means that this amalgamation makes complete sense," said Darren Coxon, outgoing Chairman of the Pensord Group.
