Accredit has preferred supplier relationships with BT, Thomson Reuters, Lenovo and Vodafone and provides cutting edge Sales Performance Improvement solutions to blue chip companies.

The initial consideration will be £400,000 of ordinary shares of 0.05p in DLM, the price to be determined by the mid-market price on the date of completion, or as otherwise agreed between the parties at the time of closing. A further £300,000 of deferred consideration may be paid, also in DLM ordinary shares (calculated by the same method) subject to the acquired business showing a profit before tax of greater than £300,000 for the year ending 30 June 2012. As stated above, the heads of terms are non-binding and the acquisition is conditional inter alia on due diligence and agreeing a definitive sale and purchase agreement. For the year ended 30 June 2011, Accredit reported a profit on ordinary activities before taxation of £224,204 and after dividends paid to the working director shareholders had  a retained profit of £93,723. Gross assets as at that date were £402,302.

Aside from securing valuable long term blue chip customers, all Intellectual Property owned by Accredit will be acquired as part of the transaction including Accredit's unique high performance sales assessment system.

Andy Hasoon, CEO of DLM, said, "We have several acquisitions being negotiated at this time and the DLM Board are delighted to announce these developments. This is the first step in what we hope to be a series of transactions that will transform us over the next year into a leading digital learning company.  DLM will secure an important world class sales product portfolio to be sold to our existing customers, and we can cross-sell our existing products in to Accredit's significant blue chip customer base. Mark is an experienced businessman who is passionate about what we are doing at DLM; He now joins other key management as significant shareholders in DLM plc, where we are all focused on and are already making valuable contributions to growing and transforming our business performance."

Mark Savinson, the new CLO of DLM commented, "I am looking forward to helping DLM deliver on its strategy to become the leading provider of Digital Learning, allowing people to become more effective in their roles by targeting relevant digital content to meet the unique needs of the individual. Accredit has long been focused on providing speciality programmes to corporate sales teams and I now look forward to broadening this approach across all aspects of the learning marketplace. I am excited at the prospect of working with Andy and the management team at DLM in delivering on the vision and building significant shareholder value."
