Cavendish advises Centaur Media on the sale of four businesses as part of a Strategic Divestment Programme

Cavendish Corporate Finance (“Cavendish”), the UK’s leading sell-side mid-market M&A adviser, has advised Centaur Media Plc (“Centaur Media”), the international market intelligence and specialist consultancy, on the disposal of four of its non-core businesses, as part of the divestment process that began after Centaur Media concluded a strategic review in October 2018 and decided to focus on its leading brands to improve operational execution.

Linda Sullivan, Partner and Head of Media and Digital at Cavendish commented:

“We are delighted to have advised Centaur Media on the sale of these four businesses as part of Centaur’s strategic divestment programme.

The businesses attracted interest from a number of large media groups and were sold to strategic buyers from the USA, Germany and the UK. All the transactions were completed concurrently and within a relatively short time.”
