Smiths News PLC Wins Deal of the Year Award!

Thursday 27th June 2013

Smiths News PLC has won the prestigious Deal of the Year award for its acquisition of The Consortium at the South West Insider Deal Makers Award Ceremony in Bristol.

Smiths News PLC had the edge over its competition this year, beating companies like MilkLink/Arla merger and Paladin Sale with its acquisition of The Consortium in April 2012.

Gillian Bonthron, Head of Investor Relations for Smiths News PLC said:

“It was a privilege to be a part of the awards team and to see all the hard work pay off. For all involved it was a proud moment and we are delighted. The Consortium is part of the Smiths News Group and are looking forward to a bright future.

The business has given the Group an excellent platform for growth in a new and expanding sector.”

The awards recognise the talent and creativity of an industry that has persevered in getting deals done and creating business successes, despite a continued adverse economic environment. The event heard from Alex Reilley, the managing director of Loungers which scooped last year's Deal of the Year, and was compèred by comic Hal Cruttenden.
