Results International is pleased to announce that it was the exclusive financial advisor to QinetiQ, a FTSE 250 multinational defence technology company, on the sale of its software business Boldon James to HelpSystems, a US-based provider of cybersecurity and automation software backed by TA Associates.

Boldon James is a global provider of data protection software solutions, that make sure that sensitive information is classified properly and secured, as well as military-grade secure email messaging solutions.
