The DCSL Group is a leading developer of bespoke software and a digital transformation specialist. Following the acquisition, it has rebranded as DCSL GuideSmiths, doubled in scale to a team of more than 250 across six locations in the UK and Europe and has a combined turnover of over £20m.

BDO Debt Advisory successfully advised the Group in raising a unitranche facility that optimises the capital structure by repaying investor loan notes. The innovative structure enables the Group to access follow-on capital and releverage to fund future acquisitions as it continues to deliver its buy and build strategy.

“We were highly impressed with BDO Debt Advisory’s considered advice and hands-on approach throughout the process. They added tangible value starting with their detailed analysis of the business, right through to negotiating terms and documentation. BDO delivered a truly innovative funding structure that will support the continued growth of the business. We are looking forward to working with them again on another successful transaction in the future.”
