References What our clients say about us

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
