Spotless acquires Riley Shelley

Acquisitive national facilities manager Spotless Group has completed the acquisition of the business assets of Riley Shelley, a company founded through a joint venture of a Perth and Brisbane-based painting businesses.

Spotless, which foreshadowed the acquisition in its interim results in February, said the acquisition will further expand the company's service offerings through Australia and New Zealand.

Riley Shelley, which offers painting and building services throughout the country, was founded in 1996 by Ian Riley and Mike Shelley who both wanted to pursue national contracts.

It appears that as a result of/in spite of this acquisition by SSL a large number of suppliers and contractors have been left in the lurch by Riley Shelley owing over $1m just in NSW alone, and putting some of their businesses into administration with KordaMentha in Perth. Wonder if they were trading insolvent prior to the sale? (which could potentially see the sale unwound if so)
