Ian Aaron, MD, UK Medical

They deserve tremendous credit. Their excellent advice and support was unwavering throughout.

We could not have done this deal without the team from BHP Corporate Finance. They deserve tremendous credit. Their excellent advice and support was unwavering throughout. I wish they could be part of my team permanently.

Andrew Pearce, Owner, Whirlowdale

The whole BHP Corporate Finance team were superb

Having been involved with Whirlowdale since the mid-1980s, realising our investment was always going to be a hugely emotional process for myself and the family. The whole BHP Corporate Finance team were superb, not only from a deal making, financial and tax point of view but they were on hand every step of the way providing the leadership, guidance, confidence and reassuring hand that were invaluable throughout the process. I have in fact worked with them on a variety of transactions in the past but I was still taken aback by how much they invest in making sure they get the right result for their client. I would not hesitate to recommend them in the strongest terms.

Richard Simpson, MD, Walkers Transport

I would have no hesitation in working with them again in the future.

We worked with BHP over a long period of time leading up to our transaction. The advice they gave on the sell side was essential in bringing it to a successful conclusion. BHP were proactive in searching out the right partner and were instrumental in getting the deal over the line. I would have no hesitation in working with them again in the future. Thanks BHP.

Alan Peel, Managing Director, Altek

Throughout the highs and lows of the process we could always rely on Don and Tim to be there to provide advice around the clock.

This acquisition is a very positive step forward for ALTEK, providing the company with a strong financial owner and industry leader which is committed to supporting ALTEK’s growth and innovation strategy. We really enjoyed working with Don Gray and Tim Brind from BHP Corporate Finance. This was a very significant transaction for us and BHP’s wise counsel and coolness under pressure were fundamental to getting the deal done. Throughout the highs and lows of the process we could always rely on Don and Tim to be there to provide advice around the clock.

If it wasn’t for BHP, I would still be working, waiting for a better deal.

If it wasn’t for BHP, I would still be working, waiting for a better deal. Instead, we sold in February 2018.

If everything had gone perfectly with our buyer, we would never have seen the capability of BHP. But it didn’t. And they earned every penny of the leavers fee. Their ability to ‘get creative’ at the eleventh hour was impressive. They completely had our backs. They were able to negotiate a great deal, one that they felt comfortable recommending back to us. It was if their own business was on the line.

BHP also brought the full weight of their tax department into play. There was a significant, potential pitfall which would have undoubtedly happened, if we’d been relying on others. BHP responded quickly with detailed and accurate information.

I expect to be working with BHP for a long time. Thank you so much.

Steve Pickering, MD / Owner, Leengate Valves

They guided us through the process from start to finish and we could always rely on them to provide insightful and well-reasoned advice.

BHP Corporate Finance were integral to making the deal happen. The company’s previous owner was a large and sophisticated German multinational. We therefore wanted an advisor with the experience and professionalism to deal with the vendor on our behalf and BHP showed they had these qualities in abundance. They guided us through the process from start to finish and we could always rely on them to provide insightful and well-reasoned advice. In short their commitment to getting the right deal for us was unquestionable.
