BDO.LiveSite.Deals.IndustryTechnology & Media

Aker Systems Ltd was founded in 2017 and builds and operates ground-breaking, ultra-secure, high performance, cloud-based data infrastructure for the enterprise.

Its proprietary technology solutions drive performance and reduce costs while helping its clients to improve the management and sharing of data across their organisations.

It secured a significant minority investment from LDC in the summer of 2020.

BDO supported Aker Systems Ltd in raising finance to fund a post-investment earn-out and repay loan notes.  The innovative debt structure has an in-built capability of increasing leverage as the business grows without the need to amend the document.

“The BDO Debt Advisory team have all been fantastic to work with.  We have very much appreciated their humour, calmness and professionalism as they guided the deal.  I also have to say that they negotiated an outstanding deal for us.” 

Darren Thomas, CEO, Aker Systems Ltd
