It’s diverse supply chain relationships with global manufacturers enable the company to offer its customers an unequalled range of products that provide outstanding value alongside market leading service levels.

BDO Debt Advisory ran a comprehensive staple debt process, and subsequently supported Rutland in completing the debt raise. They negotiated a bespoke integrated ABL/cashflow facility capable of funding both the acquisition and the future investment in working capital to support Southgate Global’s ambitious growth plans.

"We are very grateful for BDO Debt Advisory’s hands-on support and expert advice throughout this complex transaction. They played a key role in delivering a bespoke debt structure that aligned perfectly with our funding objectives. Their expertise and support, along with a relentless focus on the detail, played a key role in getting the deal done. We look forward to working with them again in the future.”
