OC&C advises SEC Newgate (and shareholders including THCP) on investment in Global Strategy Group

Friday 22 April 2022 | News

We are pleased to congratulate SEC Newgate on their majority stake investment in Global Strategy Group following Three Hills Capital Partners (THCP) investment. Global Strategy Group is a US leader in public affairs, strategic communications, and research. This is the first transaction in SEC’s active M&A programme following its delisting from the London AIM.

SEC provides data-driven, integrated services across communications, advocacy and research to corporates and institutions globally and is ranked among the top 30 public relations firms globally. The US is currently the world’s individually largest PR market and, having been established for over 25 years, Global Strategy Group is seen as one of its market leaders. SEC has strong coverage in Europe, Australia and EMEA, with the US being a relatively untapped market. Geographically, the two businesses are complementary, this partnership will allow for both SEC and GSG to expand their international reach and resources in order to pursue new business opportunities.

OC&C is a leading strategy consultancy in the Business Services market working with both major global corporations and local champions. We have advised investors on some of the largest transactions worldwide in recent years.
