Mundays LLP (Mundays) advises on the sale of Guildford -headquartered assessment and development business to US-based global workforce solutions provider.

Cubiks Group Ltd (Cubiks), an international assessment and development business headquartered in Guildford, UK, with offices in 13 countries across Europe and Asia Pacific has been acquired by PSI Services (PSI), a global workforce solutions provider with over 70 years’ experience in assessment and talent management.

The acquisition, which took place on 22 October 2019, consolidates PSI’s position as the pre-eminent talent management provider and represents a considerable development in both the breadth of its product portfolio and its global footprint. Cubiks’ renowned screening, selection and development solutions are a valuable complement to PSI’s existing talent management portfolio and will strengthen PSI’s integrated talent solutions offering for both its own and Cubiks’ customers. 

Surrey based solicitors Mundays’ Corporate M&A team advised Cubiks and its principal shareholders in connection with this challenging transaction, involving sixteen overseas subsidiaries and an employee shareholder group numbering in excess of eighty shareholders across multiple jurisdictions.  Mundays’ Head of Corporate Commercial, Neale Andrews, led the Mundays team working alongside colleagues, Howard White, John Parpounas-Matossian, Ben Martin and others. 

Neale commented, “This was a very challenging transaction in terms of the way it needed to be structured, but we were delighted to have achieved an extremely satisfactory result ahead of timetable.  Having worked with Cubiks for more than a decade on a variety of matters I am delighted to see Cubiks now well positioned for the next phase of its development.  I was extremely pleased and proud of how the Mundays’ team responded to the various challenges that the transaction presented.  It epitomised our desire at Mundays to crack on with our work and to deliver real results and value for our clients.”   

Cubiks CEO, Martin Smith commented, “A heartfelt thank you to Neale and the Mundays team who have provided fantastic advice and support to us during the life of this project.  It’s been a great team effort on a complex and time pressured transaction. It simply wouldn’t have happened without you.”
