IndustryBusiness Services

BDO Corporate Finance advised the founders on their sale of LM Group Ltd (trading as RiskDisk) to Experian plc. RiskDisk has grown by recognising the potential for evolving IT systems to reduce cost-of-delivery of credit information services, and also seeing the growth potential to supply such information to SME customers. The focus has resulted in RiskDisk now serving over 18,000 customers.       

“We received excellent advice from the BDO Corporate Finance Team throughout the sale of Riskdisk to Experian plc. They showed expertise in entrepreneurial mid-market private companies such as Riskdisk and also in how large plcs work which helped to smooth the way in bringing the two together. We were particularly pleased with BDO's negotiation skills on some of the more technical areas of the deal, and the buyers commented on BDO's impressive performance.”
