WHA was very pleased to support Halsbury Travel Group (‘Halsbury’) with their strategic acquisition of Ski and Educational specialist, IBT Travel (‘IBT’), helping to facilitate the required regulatory approvals.
Halsbury is a leading school tour operator and the strategic acquisition of IBT provides exciting opportunities for the new enlarged Group, including an expanded product offering and customer base, while simultaneously providing opportunities to enhance their day-to-day internal operations.
This deal also represents Halsbury’s first acquisition since receiving investment from Literacy Capital in June 2022, with future M&A an ongoing objective for the team.
WHA has encouragingly observed a buoyant level of M&A activity in the travel sector this year, which we expect to intensify in 2024. If you require support with any M&A related activity and/or fundraise in the travel sector, please do not hesitate to send WHA an enquiry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
