Impartial. Independent. In Your Corner.
BCMS is a specialist M&A advisor, working exclusively with the shareholders of privately owned companies seeking growth capital or a business sale. A UK advisor, first established in 1989, BCMS has completed hundreds of transactions in our trading history. Our track record of deals covers a wide range of sectors and deal structures, from full company sales to strategic trade acquirers in the UK and overseas, to growth capital transactions and/or cash-out deals with Private Equity investors.
As a sell-side-only Corporate Finance advisor, BCMS specialises in offering impartial, independent and purely objective advice. We can do this because we have absolutely no reliance on buyers or investors for workflow or fees, unlike most in our industry.
The keys to our success are developing a deep understanding of your priorities and objectives, coupled with an intensive desire to achieve them. From our first meeting, we seek to build trusted, enduring relationships with our clients. This is evidenced by our unique network of former clients, The BCMS Fellows, who stay close to us post-transaction. These inspiring individuals have first-hand experience of the M&A process and are on hand to share their experiences with you.
At BCMS, our expert transaction teams take the time to fully understand your priorities and the intrinsic strategic value in your business. We help you to assess the right time to pursue a transaction. We create and manage a tailored go-to-market strategy on your behalf, designed to maximise interest from a diverse range of bidders capable of best meeting your objectives. Our approach will maximise competition and choice of buyers and create the conditions to negotiate the best possible deal value and terms for you.
How our clients see BCMS
Our approach is designed to create enduring positive outcomes for our clients and their businesses, and we’re honoured to have so many former clients endorse BCMS and recommend us to other business owners considering their next steps. As Osman Ismail, Chairman and Founder, DPS Software says: “Recognising that it’s time for others to come in to help take your business to another level is a very difficult decision. We chose BCMS to guide us on that journey. At the time, we didn’t realise how good a choice that was. The BCMS team were supremely professional throughout, and very hands-on. We simply couldn’t have achieved what we did without the expertise provided by this very professional team.”
