We have successfully advised Inspired PLC on the acquisition of Horizon Energy Group, an energy procurement and consultancy business based in Cork, Ireland.

The acquisition will be financed through a £9m share placing on AIM and a new £35m facility with Santander, which will refinance Inspired’s existing borrowings and provide further headroom for its future growth and acquisition strategy.

The deal was led from our Manchester office by Corporate Partner, Paul Jefferson and Corporate Associate Leigh Whittaker

Commenting on the deal, Paul Jefferson said: “We have a long-standing and strong relationship with Inspired PLC, having advised on its flotation and on a number of acquisitions since. We are delighted to continue to provide support and advice to the management team as the business goes from strength to strength.”
