According to the company, the cost of the acquisition was $3,625,000 comprising $3,250,000 on completion and $375,000 in 12 months based on the fulfilment of certain warranties relating to FUM retention and delivery of agreed outcomes.

Also, the CBG balance sheet acquired by Clime included $500k in net cash and substantial franking credits.

Under the terms of a deal, CBG principal Ronni Chalmers and other senior staff would join the Clime’s team.
