Green Square advises Orange Bus on its sale to Capita plc
Green Square is delighted to have advised Orange Bus, the leading Newcastle-based digital solutions agency on its sale to Capita plc. The acquisition will enhance Capita’s existing digital development capability and strengthen its ability to deliver complex client projects.

Orange Bus is an award-winning digital agency that designs solutions to problems for clients across the private and public sector. Employing 75 staff, its work includes designing applications, testing and optimising websites and improving user experience. Clients include high profile brands such as Joules and Barbour together with public sector organisations such as HMRC, the NHS and the Department of Work and Pensions.

Julian Leighton CEO and Mike Parker CTO of Orange Bus commented:

"Joining Capita Group is the ideal next step for the team at Orange Bus. It is an excellent strategic fit and gives us the scope to accelerate our already rapid growth. It's a critical choice who you choose to take you on this journey and we couldn't recommend Green Square highly enough after working with them over the period. They're great to work with, honest and very much looked after our interests throughout the process, no matter how stressful and difficult things became. We never felt under pressure to take a decision we weren't sure about, or pushed in a direction we weren't comfortable with, instead we were guided gently down the correct path for us, using their vast experience to ensure we made the right choices along the way. Green Square have not only been great and trusted advisors, they have now become firm friends, which is as high a compliment as we can give.”

Tony Walford, Partner Green Square commented:

“It was an absolute pleasure to work with Julian, Mike and the team at Orange Bus. It is a fabulous business with a strong and enviable culture which delivers class-leading solutions for its clients. Whilst there were a number of potential acquirers, G2G3 and Capita provided a very compelling fit and the most interesting opportunities for the agency’s future growth. We look forward to working with the team during the next stage of their journey"
