The consideration payable by R&Q, in cash from existing resources, is £16.0m. This represents a small discount to the Company’s net assets of £17.8m. In the year to 31st December 2017 MPSRS recorded a profit before tax of £2.3m.

Commenting on today’s announcement, Ken Randall, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Randall & Quilter, said: “We are delighted to have agreed terms to acquire MPSRS.
