ANISA GROUP ADVISED BY PINSENT MASONS ON MARKET LEADING MOVE

November 2006

A team from law firm Pinsent Masons has advised its client Anisa Group on a deal which has helped to create the UK's market leader in warehousing and distribution.

Anisa has acquired certain business and assets of FWL Technologies Limited (Liverpool) comprising warehousing and distribution, enterprise resource planning and facilities management operations and related staff.

FWL Technologies counts as its customers many of the world's leading logistics, supply chain and transportation companies. The company specialises in providing proprietary software and support services to over 200 customers worldwide, including in the UK leading logistics companies such as DHL, Exel and TNT.

Ross Telford, Anisa Group Chairman, commented: 'Bringing these two businesses together creates the largest UK-based market leader in warehousing and distribution. FWL Technologies has an excellent range of products and expertise to offer customers the most comprehensive solutions portfolio and technology offerings in the UK.

'This is an important strategic acquisition for Anisa Group which more than doubles our position in the warehousing and distribution market where we already enjoy a high profile and considerable success. We now have over 400 customers in 700 locations worldwide.'

The Pinsent Masons team advising Anisa Group has been led by Corporate Partner, Joanne Ellis, working with Russell Hill and Alex Darbyshire (Banking and Finance).
