|Transaction||Saltbush is acquired by UXC Limited|
Bonitz Advisory is proud to have been the co-lead sell-side adviser to Saltbush Group Pty Ltd (Saltbush) on its divestment to UXC Limited (UXC).
The divestment of Saltbush, Australia’s largest cyber security consulting firm, to UXC (now CSC) provides to business access to UXC’s customers and corporate resources further fuelling its growth potential. On the other hand, UXC’s acquisition of Saltbush significantly enhances UXC’s (now CSC) IT security capabilities, creating UXC’s first ICT Security Practice. The acquisition also includes an array of IT security credentials such as RTO, I-RAP, CREST approval, and QSA-accredited staff.
A key challenge of the divestment was to ensure that the synergies of Saltbush’s 6 corporate entities were presented in such a way as to maximise the value of the Saltbush group. Bonitz Advisory undertook an extensive analysis to uncover areas of financial normalisation as well as identification of strategic value that UXC would be able to harness post-acquisition.
