Hansard buys ABS but future of staff is not yet decided

Hansard Group has acquired property specialist ABS communications.

The deal follows the death in September of ABS founder and executive chairman Alan Bailey, who was also a former cartoonist with The Daily Telegraph.

Hansard CEO Adam Reynolds confirmed the agency will retain its identity, as a subsidiary of the group. However, the future of the agency's three staff, including two PROs, has not yet been finalised.

The acquisition, which Reynolds described as a 'nice little deal', adds £150,000 to Hansard's revenue.

ABS was formed in 1971 and has a client list including property firms Grosvenor Estates and Benchmark.

Hansard clients include Artisan and the Wigmore Group.
