Leading global law firm Baker McKenzie has advised Capita plc (“Capita”) on two competitive sale processes relating to Capita’s sale of its resourcing businesses. The first transaction is a proposed sale by Capita of the Capita Resourcing, HR Solutions and ThirtyThree businesses to Inspirit Capital, and the second transaction is a sale of the Security Watchdog business to Matrix which is owned by Bridgepoint Development Capital, part of Bridgepoint Group plc.

These businesses are some of the UK’s leading providers of human capital resourcing services to both the public and private sectors. The sale to Inspirit Capital is subject to National Security and Investment Act approval. 

Baker McKenzie M&A Partner Nick Bryans, who led the two transactions, commented: “We are pleased to have acted for Capita on these two transactions. The transactions mark another significant step towards reducing Capita’s debt, as it continues to simplify and strengthen its organisation, and become a more successful business for the long term.”
