JSC International...preserving the chemistry

RSM’s M&A and private equity team has advised on the sale of JSC International Limited (JSC) to Environmental Resources Management (ERM).

The Client

JSC is a leading regulatory consultancy based in Harrogate, providing expert independent regulatory and risk assessment advice in the area of agrochemicals, biocides and general chemical legislation. The company assists its clients in navigating the EU regulatory environment to achieve successful registrations of chemicals within the EU and its member states.

The sale to ERM, the world’s leading sustainability consultancy, will broaden the services JSC can offer to its clients and provide development opportunities for its employees.

What RSM did

RSM led the transaction on behalf of the vendors from start to finish - reviewing potential exit options; running a controlled process to select the preferred acquirer; and negotiating all aspects of the commercial deal terms.


'We knew we had a good business with a great potential for future growth. The team at RSM translated the numbers and our vision into a convincing message to present to potential buyers. They negotiated a transaction structure that exceeded our expectations and we were totally confident in the advice we received. I would not hesitate to recommend them. We feel that, with the expert advice provided to us by RSM, we have found the best possible home for our business.'
