Ceuta Group, an £88m turnover consumer brand services business has acquired Cheshire-based Click Consult for an undisclosed sum.
The acquisition is part of a wider strategy by Ceuta to invest in complementary businesses.
Click is wholly owned by director Matt Bullas. He founded the agency in 2003 and it now has more than 70 staff.
“Over the last 15 years, we have worked to build Click Consult into a leading digital and search marketing agency that delivers a highly effective service and ROI for our clients,” he said.
“We are excited to join Ceuta Group and realise the mutual value the combination will create, while also providing a platform for Click Consult to continue to grow to new heights. Organisations are increasingly looking to reach consumers directly rather than through retail channels and this is something we are perfectly positioned to help them achieve alongside the Ceuta Group of companies.”
In accounts filed in August, Click showed net assets of £2.8m, up from £1.56m the previous year.
Ceuta is based in Bournemouth, with offices in Ireland, Netherlands, USA, and Thailand.
“We are delighted to welcome Click Consult, a fantastic business with a strong culture, values and people closely aligned to our own, to the Ceuta Group family,” explained Edwin Bessant, Ceuta Group CEO.
“Many of our clients are struggling with their digital & search marketing strategies and are seeking expertise on how best to construct a compelling online proposition that effectively engages their target audiences. The inclusion of Click Consult in our offering is the last piece of the brand building puzzle for many companies and will deliver significant benefits to our global market base.”
Click Consult will operate as an independent business, but will be working closely with other companies under the Ceuta Group umbrella.
