Recently listed AIM-listed consultant signs share option agreement with QS

UK consultant Baqus has signed a share option agreement with Brian Hannaby & Associates with a view to buying the Liverpool-based QS later this year.

Baqus, which became listed on the alternative investment market (AIM) at the end of last year, said it hopes the acquisition will strengthen its services in transport and infrastructure.

Clive Sayer, chief executive of Baqus, said: “We are delighted to announce this share option as it provides the foundations for our first acquisition since floating on AIM in December 2007.

“Brian Hannaby has an excellent reputation in the transport and infrastructure sectors, which will increase our expertise in these important sectors.”
