Gareth Frankland, Owner and CEO, ACDC
BHP were outstanding throughout – they made the deal happen in many ways – more than happy to recommend them.
BHP advised me on the sale of 60% of my company acdc to Austrian Listed International lighting corporation Zumtobel Group. It was a complicated transaction as it involved handling 4 other key stakeholders, with their own individual goals, but BHP handled matters extremely professionally. During initial meetings with the buyer, BHP had a knack of being able to make the potentially complicated relatively simple, and their lead role throughout negotiations was absolutely fundamental to the transaction. Throughout the process BHP kept the deal moving in the right direction, overcoming several major obstacles, providing me with excellent advice and support throughout the process.

Samuel Sweet, Owner, Sweet Squared
BHP have been a fundamental component of our success story at Sweet Squared.
From the first time working with them to secure our start-up funding 10 years ago to recently taking the lead on our acquisition of ICON Consultancy, BHP add immense value with crystal clear understanding of our business, our requirements and our objectives. Their ability to navigate complex scenarios and arrive at the best outcome for all parties makes them invaluable and a complete pleasure to work with.View case study

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 as 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.
Neil Stewardson, Owner, Siddall Hilton Products Limited
Nothing was too much and their advice and responses were quick and innovative throughout.
When planning our MBO we presented BHP with a challenging brief which we are delighted to say they more than delivered for us. Nothing was too much and their advice and responses were quick and innovative throughout. Andy is a credit to BHP we would use Andy again and we would highly recommend him to others.
Sean Taggart, CEO, The Albatross Group
They inspire confidence, wear their considerable expertise lightly and frankly are a pleasure to deal with.
My time at Albatross has shaped much of my professional life and most if not all of that has been down to the people that I have met and worked with and the friendships and relationships that I have been fortunate enough to build over the years. This very much includes the team at BHP Corporate Finance. Even in an amicable deal such as ours, there are lots of issues to consider and complexities to overcome and they took all these in their stride and made it look easy! They inspire confidence, wear their considerable expertise lightly and frankly are a pleasure to deal with. I would not have a moment’s hesitation in recommending them to anyone who was looking to do any sort of transaction.
Mike Pawson, FD, Greenhous Group
They have become a trusted advisor to Greenhous and I would not hesitate in recommending their services to others.
I have worked with BHP over the past 6 years on a variety of different corporate finance projects. Over this period they have consistently over-delivered on the assignments that the firm has undertaken. They have become a trusted advisor to Greenhous and I would not hesitate in recommending their services to others.
