What did RSM do?

This represents RSM’s fourth transaction in the chemicals sector in recent months following on from the sale of Fragrance Oils (International) to Givaudan SA, the sale of Holchem Group to Ecolab Inc. and the sale of Create Flavours to the European Nactarome Group.

RSM’s attention to detail, handling of sensitive negotiations and support throughout allowed us to achieve the outcome that we did. Their in depth understanding of our business meant that the advice they provided was clear and their commitment was second to none. The way they supported us through the process was exceptional and, importantly, they were really easy to work with. We are grateful for all of their hard work and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
