Deal typeM&A
IndustryTechnology & Media

YouTrain Limited is a leading independent provider of IT & Digital Training services based in Scotland, focussed on the fast-growing UK apprenticeship market. BDO assisted and advised the shareholders in completing the sale of 100% of the share capital to GP Strategies Limited, a US listed training provider.       

"We chose BDO because as a Scottish-based business, we wanted to work with a firm who have global and UK-wide reach but would run the process locally. BDO inspired confidence from the start; they set out clear timelines, designed an excellent Information Memorandum, sourced several serious potential buyers and secured terms which were attractive for the shareholders. They project managed the process through to completion with great attention to detail and were a pleasure to work with."
