Leading Southeast law firm Warners Solicitors has been awarded the prestigious Deal of the Year Award 2023 by the Kent Corporate Finance Alliance (KCFA). These awards recognise the best deals completed by KCFA members during 2023.
The firm was commended for its role in acting for Infinity Group on its acquisition of RedkiteCRM Limited in September 2023.
The judges, Hugh Minnock and Roshan Puri from YFM Private Equity, were impressed by the interesting acquisition that involved Kent-based advisors Warners and Crowe and with acquisition finance provided by HSBC Home Counties. Of particular interest was the ESG angle to the deal with RedkiteCRM being a dedicated provider of Microsoft Dynamics 365 solutions, products and managed services to the Social Housing sector in the UK.
The acquisition marks the next step in Infinity Group’s expansion strategy. The group now has 150 full-time employees and has expanded its customer base and capabilities to deliver hyper-focused solutions to the social housing sector.
Andrew Hawkins, Head of Corporate at Warners Solicitors, commented:
“This is fantastic news – we are delighted to have won the prestigious KCFA Deal of the Year Award. It is really encouraging to have the hard work of everyone involved in this deal and the calibre of the transaction itself recognised by the judges and the KCFA. I would like to thank the members of Warners’ deal team, Louise Brenlund (Employment) and Jessica Cox (Corporate), who played a key role in the deal’s success as well as Geert Struyven and his team from Crowe. None of this would have been possible without us having been engaged to act for Infinity Group so a huge thank you to Phil and Rob for choosing me and my team to get such an important transaction completed for them. “
