Deals of the Year 2019: Acquisition brings global reach, corporate synergies and a cultural fit
Patrick Flynn, Chairman of Flynn O’Driscoll, shared various aviation leasing clients with AvCS and having worked with them over a 12 year period knew the calibre of the business and its personnel.
In general discussions on business growth and succession, he had asked Niall and Frank whether they would consider a takeover or merger to grow and scale their business.
Patrick at the time was a Board member of Enterprise Ireland and was very keen to encourage businesses in growth sectors like aviation, that had the ability to further scale, to look at doing so and a merger or acquisition was a good way of doing so.
