We have extensive experience of advising on the sale of private companies on behalf of a range of shareholders – individuals, institutions and public companies. Our aim is to deliver the best combination of price and structure to our clients whilst completing the transaction in a timely and efficient manner so that transactional risk and business disruption are minimised.
Corporate Mergers & Acquisitions
Our acquisition advisory services range from the development of acquisition strategies to identification of suitable targets and effecting deals, working closely with client personnel as appropriate. A number of corporate clients have retained us to advise on successive acquisitions.
Development & Growth Capital
We have huge experience in working with businesses to help them secure additional capital to fund their growth plans whether that be through rolling out a retail format, developing new products, entering new markets or acquiring a competitor.
Our substantial experience of carrying out due diligence assignments covers work for a wide variety of clients – private equity investors, banks and corporates. We base our work on a thorough understanding of the rationale for the investment, lending or acquisition to be made.
MBOs & MBIs
We have enormous experience to offer those involved, both in terms of the complex financial and commercial issues which need to be addressed and crucially, in handling the softer points that need to be considered. Our strategic approach is designed to deliver the right outcome for those involved whilst at all times remaining objective.
The combination of our considerable experience of both private equity and M&A, together with our knowledge of the funding market, enables us to optimise the structure of private equity deals.
Strategic & Corporate Advisory
We can work on an ad-hoc project basis, however, many of our clients retain us on an ongoing basis where we meet regularly to discuss and advise upon key business issues. As a firm we are able to draw on the significant “real world” experience of our team members who have held senior positions in industry.
Our tax advice on transactions focuses on mitigating liabilities arising as a result of a transaction and also ensuring that consideration is given to the efficiency of tax arrangements going forward.

Translink’s support and advice was instrumental in guiding us through the acquisition of Westpack. They negotiated and structured an excellent deal for us which exceeded our expectations, and sourced a funding partner on attractive terms, despite the challenging market conditions.

Will Brennand, CEO, Bigvits
BHP was instrumental in helping us make our first overseas acquisition, adding significant value throughout the transaction. Overall, we were delighted with the quality and breadth of services that were provided to us in a fully joined-up manner, and we would not hesitate to recommend them. We look forward to working with BHP again soon!

Dean Woodyer, Managing Director , H&M Distribution
After planning and working towards a MBO for several years, the team at H&M couldn’t be happier with the outcome. The transaction enables H&M to continue with our future growth strategy. Without the help, expertise and professionalism shown by BHP we would never have been able to get the deal completed.
David Webster, Former Managing Director, The Label Makers Limited
The decision to sell the family business, which I had built up over 35 years, was one of the hardest of my life. BHP was selected as our preferred advisor due to their experience, professional approach and association with Translink.
