28 Nov 2016

Lawyers at Newcastle-based law firm, Hay & Kilner have advised on a management buyout (MBO) of Indigo Software, a leading global warehousing and logistics provider, based in Durham.

Established for over 36 years, Indigo is a leading warehousing and logistics provider, implementing warehouse management software solutions either on site or in the Cloud for their global customer base. The company continues to expand internationally and launched Indigo Software Asia Pacific (Indigo APac), a wholly owned subsidiary in Hong Kong earlier this year.

Under the transaction structure, former managing director and founder, Peter McLane will be appointed as a non-executive director to support the newly appointed CEO, Mike Hill, CFO Bill Ginn and the rest of the senior management team.

Mark Adams, Corporate Partner at Hay & Kilner acted as lead legal advisor to the management team at Indigo. He commented:

‘We were delighted to support Bill and the rest of the management team throughout the buyout. We wish them every success with their future plans.’

Mike Hill, CEO at Indigo Software commented:

‘Completing a management buyout was a natural succession plan for Indigo’s former managing director and founder and we believe it’s the best possible outcome for all our stakeholders. Indigo has an outstanding customer satisfaction record, solid technology which continues to grow in strength and very ambitious plans for the future.’

RSM, led by corporate finance partner Tony Edwards and with support from Kevin Rooney and Andy Graham, supported Indigo’s management team during the transaction.
