PwC’s Corporate Finance team support Click Travel on the sale of the company to TravelPerk

06 Jul 2021

PwC’s Corporate Finance team has acted as lead advisor to the majority shareholders of Click Travel on the sale of the business to the largest global travel management platform, TravelPerk.

Birmingham-based Click Travel, is one of the UK’s leading and fastest growing travel management companies. Their online booking platform reduces the cost and complexity of booking travel for their 2,000 business clients, including Five Guys, Red Bull and Talk Talk.

TravelPerk is the next-generation business travel platform, pioneering the future for business travel worldwide. They hold the world’s largest travel inventory alongside powerful management features, 24/7 customer support, state of the art technologies and consumer-graded design. The acquisition will combine Click Travel’s UK market expertise and customer base with TravelPerk’s international inventory and innovative suite of products. It also establishes TravelPerk as the leading travel management platform for the SMB market globally and for the UK as a whole.

The PwC Corporate Finance team advising on the deal was led by Ian Birch, director, with support from Dan Gallagher, partner and David Isaacs, Nicholas Campion and Adrian Foong.

Ian Birch, Director, PwC said:

"We're delighted to have advised Click Travel and the shareholders on this transaction, having previously advised on the sale of a minority interest to BGF in 2018. The business has had an exceptional track record of growth under the leadership of James McLean, and has weathered the impact that Covid-19 has had on the global travel market. We look forward to seeing the business thrive as part of TravelPerk and wish the team the best of luck."

James McLean, Click Travel CEO said:

"The PwC Corporate Finance team has provided invaluable support and insight throughout the process. They showed in depth understanding of our business and motives, bringing the best that PwC has to offer in delivering an optimal outcome for all involved.”
