Berg has advised telecoms provider Communicate Better on its acquisition of the telecoms business and certain assets of Green House Associates Limited as Communicate Better continues to expand its operations across the UK.

Based in Swinton, Communicate Better provides voice and data line services, fixed-line and mobile telecommunications, vehicle tracking technology, IT support and consultancy services. In completing the move, Communicate Better is set to benefit from Green
House’s established and varied customer base.

The acquisition of Green House, which is based in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, becomes Communicate Better’s fourth in the recent past, and more deals are in the pipeline.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, Keith Kennedy, Corporate Partner at Berg, said: "The telecoms sector is ideal for market consolidation, with a number of larger players eyeing up niche providers to gain a full service and product offering. As the
market becomes increasingly competitive and providers dip into acquisition war chests, we expect to see more merger and acquisition activity within the sector in 2012."

To discuss how we can provide further advice in connection with these issues, please contact Keith Kennedy, Partner in our Corporate team, by email to or alternatively you can call Kieth on 0161 833 9211.
