FTI Consulting acquires Salter Group

Boutique financial services firm has worked for Disney, Legendary

Global advisory firm FTI Consulting has acquired The Salter Group, an independent financial and strategic advisory company that has worked on some of Hollywood’s most high-profile transactions since its founding a decade ago.

Salter Group will continue to offer its previous advisory services, as well as FTI’s merger integration, strategic communications and other work.

Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Roy Salter, Eric Briggs and Patrick Russo founded the Salter Group in 2003. Along with an executive team of six other professionals, the group has advised on more than 1,350 projects totalling $145 billion.

Well-known for its asset valuation work, The Salter Group has provided financial and strategic advisory services for companies including Legendary Pictures, The Walt Disney Company, Sony and New Regency.

“FTI Consulting is a truly global organization that possesses an extraordinarily unique culture aimed at protecting and enhancing enterprise value for its clients worldwide,” said Roy Salter in a statement. “Today’s increasingly regulated global markets require new levels of credible objectivity to assess investments and lending risks. I fully expect Salter Group’s and FTI Consulting’s clients and relationships to benefit from the combined breadth of our aptitudes, experience and global relationships.”

Already active across a broad swath of media, FTI will benefit from Los Angeles-based Salter Group’s specialized experience in entertainment content.

“The addition of Salter Group strengthens FTI Consulting’s forecasting, valuation, financial opinion and transaction support capabilities and deepens our industry expertise, especially in entertainment where Salter Group has a dominant market position as a world-recognized advisor,” said Carlyn Taylor, who leads FTI’s industry initiatives and communications groups, in a statement. “Salter Group has also built a significant presence in the attractive growth industries of media, technology and life sciences, amongst others.”

FTI employs 3,800 employees in 24 countries and offers services in areas including investigations, litigation, mergers and acquisitions, regulatory issues, reputation management, strategic communications and restructuring. Company reported $1.57 billion in revenues in 2011.
