Andrew Pearce, Owner, Whirlowdale Trading Co Limited

I would not hesitate to recommend them in the strongest terms.

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.

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.

Advisors who have the experience, expertise and professionalism to represent your best interests

BHP Corporate Finance were fundamental to the success of this transaction. From helping us to prepare for the sale process, to marketing Roota to global buyers and then negotiating the detailed deal, the BHP team worked tirelessly and with total commitment. Like us, many business owners will only sell once so it’s vital to engage advisors who have the experience, expertise and professionalism to represent your best interests. BHP demonstrated all this in abundance and their ability to remain calm and provide sage and reasoned advice throughout the ups and downs was enormously reassuring.

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.

Peter Oxspring, MD, Arkote

Their pragmatic, common sense approach and hands-on support has been invaluable.

Each acquisition we have made has come with its own unique set of challenges, and we were extremely happy to have BHP Corporate Finance on board throughout, adding real value to each process. Their pragmatic, common sense approach and hands-on support has been invaluable. It allowed the team here at Arkote to focus on running the business, during what has been an extremely busy time.

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.
