BCMS MBI deal nominated for prestigious award
BCMS is delighted to announce that the recent management buy-in of Cooper Callas Ltd has been nominated as Deal of the Year (sub-£25m) in the forthcoming Thames Valley deal awards. Judged by a panel of experienced industry peers, the award will be presented on April 23 at an event hosted at the Madejski Stadium in Reading, Berkshire.
The deal involved Philip Carr, a high profile industry figure, negotiating a majority shareholding in Cooper Callas Ltd, a leading distributor of kitchen and bathroom brands. BCMS acted as lead advisor to the vendors, with the deal completing in August 2014.
This nomination comes the same week as another BCMS led transaction, the acquisition of Tew Engineering Ltd by L.B. Foster company, was announced as a finalist in the 7th Annual International M&A Awards, which will be presented at a Gala reception on 28th April at the New York Athletic Club.
BCMS is also sponsoring the Bank of the Year award category, which has seen leading commercial banks RBS, HSBC, and Santander, nominated as finalists.
