The BDO Transaction Services team carried out financial and tax due diligence for Winterbotham Darby’s acquisition of chilled olive and antipasti business Alatoni. Alatoni supplies products such as green olives hand filled with feta cheese, roast tomatoes with parmesan and pesto dressing, together with pitted black olives and Greek Kalamatas. Winterbotham Darby also specialises in the same category supplying continental meats and morning goods, chilled olives and antipasti.     

"We selected BDO because of the precise nature and defined approach to the acquisition target. The ability of BDO to act swiftly and decisively on providing updated analysis to support our final judgement was key to the success of the transaction. The transparency and visibility throughout the diligence process without doubt supported the final deal position. I would without hesitation recommend using the BDO team's services once again".
