After our 2010 acquisition of European headquartered VPS , we refocused the US division of the business encouraging the pursuit of larger, national contracts.

In 2013, we completed the transformational acquisition of MCS in the US and separated VPS US from its European parent and along with MCS it formed the larger MCS Group. The MCS acquisition was compelling given the synergies and the businesses’ complementary customer bases.

During TDR’s investment

Through an accretive buy-and-build strategy we created one of the leading businesses in the mortgage property services sector in the US.
  • We strategically repositioned MCS, completing three add-on acquisitions thereby creating a more diversified mortgage services business with reduced customer concentration, increased product breadth and a balanced cyclical/acyclical exposure
  • We grew the customer base through new contract wins and increased sales to existing customers, creating one of the leading businesses in the US property services sector
  • In April 2017, following a competitive process, we completed the sale of MCS Group to American Securities
