References What our clients say about us

Steve Tate, Chairman and CEO, Check Safety First

I highly recommend the services of BHP Corporate Finance. A business owner would be crazy not to use their services to lead a sales process; their involvement is completely self-financing and allows the people who built the business to focus on running the company throughout the process.

The sale of our business to a large listed acquiror was a complex and significant transaction throughout which BHP’s advice and support was invaluable. BHP oversaw a global marketing process which resulted in us securing a highly successful outcome for both the shareholders and the company and were with us every step of the way. I am clear that we wouldn’t have been able to deliver the result that we did without the help of Andy, Tim and the team at BHP, for which we are very grateful.

Tony Jex, MD, Jex Engineering Company

Instrumental throughout the process… excellent support at all times of the day and night

They came into our business, listened to our needs and were able to locate suitable companies for the long-term future of Jex Engineering. They were instrumental throughout the negotiating process and provided excellent support for ourselves at all times of the day and night.

From the first meeting we were very impressed with the professionalism and commitment from the team. As a result, Jex Engineering was successful in being acquired by the Redhall Group PLC.

Charles Buddery, Chief Executive, Dig for Fire DMG

Utterly professional, able to add real value and frankly very easy to work with

I have worked with BHP Corporate Finance both to buy companies and to sell my own. Subsequently I have even found myself on the other side of a transaction from them. All of this arguably leaves me uniquely qualified to comment on their all round strengths. In each instance I have found them utterly professional, able to add real value and frankly very easy to work with. Business doesn’t need people who complicate situations simply to justify their own involvement and fees.

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.

Andrew Howells, Shareholder, Citnow

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.
