Buyers said to be circling oil & gas recruiters
Mon, 16 Apr 2012
Suggestions that the UK’s oil & gas recruitment industry may be ripe for consolidation have emerged, with reports that buyers are being sought for Air Energi and NES Global Talent.
The Daily Telegraph today reported [16 April 2012] that Palatine Private Equity has hired advisers from Deloitte to seek a buyer for Air Energi. The newspaper quoted banking sources in reporting that Graphite Capital had asked bankers from Baird to re-ignite the sale process for NES.
It reported further that Fircroft Engineering Services was “on the verge” of selling a minority stake to an outside investor.
At press deadlines, neither Palatine nor Graphite had returned calls from recruiter.co.uk.
