BDO provided financial and tax due diligence services to LDC on its investment into Idwal.
LDC, the leading mid-market private equity firm has made a significant investment into Cardiff based Idwal Marine Services (‘Idwal’), a leading provider of tech-enabled inspection services for the global commercial shipping sector.
Idwal provides specialist asset condition and integrity inspection services, fleet monitoring and data services for customers across the marine industry. It employs 55 people at its head office in the city’s Caspian Point, in addition to a number of remote workers throughout the UK and internationally in Greece, China and Japan.
With LDC’s support, Idwal’s management team will further develop the platform, data and service provision and expand its network of overseas offices, which already includes China, Greece and Japan.
"The BDO team provided vendor due diligence services to Graig in respect of LDC’s investment in Idwal. Management felt supported throughout the transaction process. BDO’s collaborative and pragmatic approach, alongside their shipping and maritime expertise resulted in a high quality, robust report which addressed the buyer’s needs and was well received by all parties."
