The Mill


Jamieson, the independent corporate finance boutique, is pleased to announce its role in advising the management team, led by Robin Shenfield and Pat Joseph, in conjunction with Barclays Private Equity’s successful acquisition of The Mill.

Robin and Pat founded the company, which provides digital visual effects for advertisements made for television, the internet, outdoor advertising and mobile devices, in 1990, and have been through a number of buyouts over the years. Michael Baulk retains his role as Chairman with Michael Wolfson continuing as finance director.

The Jamieson engagement team was Stuart Coventry and John Greenland. Today’s announcement both strengthens Jamieson’s relationship with The Mill, having advised on the Carlyle led buyout in 2007, and cements Jamieson’s position in the media sector with recent roles advising Icon, Vue Cinemas, HiT Entertainment, Incisive Media and several other confidential processes.

The transaction comes off the back of a resurgent deal market with Jamieson completing 11 management advisory roles in the past twelve months including most recently Brit Insurance, Dometic, Vue Cinemas, NSL Services, and Equity Trust.
