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.

Kevan Bingham, MD, Mayflower Engineering

blended seamlessly with our team… professional skill and good humour in a wonderful balance

Throughout the inevitable ups and downs of the MBO process, I felt they blended seamlessly with our management team. Understanding that we also had a business to run as normal, they quickly grasped the significance of the key issues, and ensured that our time went where it was best placed. Professional skill and good humour in a wonderful balance – it was a pleasure to work with them.

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.

Chris Barton , Co-founder, The Coaching Manual

We are very grateful to BHP for their support throughout the fundraising process.

Having helped us prepare the business for investment, BHP introduced us to Maven who instantly shared our enthusiasm for the TCM platform and its potential. BHP then assisted us through what was a complex fundraising process, were available when we needed them and worked through a number of complex commercial issues to get the deal done. We are very grateful to BHP for their support throughout the fundraising process.

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.

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.
