Multiple sales for Inchcape PLC - steering success to new heights

23 July 2021

Our mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and private equity (PE) teams advised Inchcape PLC as they re-positioned their retail portfolio to dispose of non-core assets. 

The client

Inchcape is a leading independent multi-brand global automotive distribution, retail and services company listed on the London Stock Exchange.

RSM’s solution

We led the process by designing the strategy, marketing the businesses, through to execution and successful commercial negotiation of both terms and end contract. This deal resulted in multiple transactions to multiple buyers and was of significant value for Inchcape.

Transaction team: James Wild, Rikesh Patel, James Jarvis, and Aaron Bhatti.


‘We have worked with RSM for two years and they’ve played a key role in supporting the business as we re-position our portfolio and extract value from the disposal of our non-core retail assets. The advice was hugely valuable, highly commercial, and always measured, with an eye for detail. RSM worked well with our team at all levels of the organisation, especially senior executives but also our more operational colleagues. This approach has delivered us significant value and supported the successful closing of each transaction. Without RSM UK, we wouldn’t have delivered the programme as fully, profitably or as quickly. Thank you for all your help and support.’
