The BDO Transaction Services Team advised Risk Capital Partners on their acquisition of a majority stake in Cruise.co, the company which owns the UK’s largest online cruise holiday websites, Cruise.co.uk and Cruises.co.uk. Cruise.co handles 65,000 cruise passengers every year and generated an income of £64million last year. www.cruise.co.uk is the largest site in the UK for cruise reviews and cruise related questions and answers and publishes unique content and consolidates comparison tables of onboard facilities.        

“The BDO Transaction Services Team were a great help to Risk Capital during our acquisition of Cruise.co. They thought about the key issues and produced a targeted and efficient report. They were also alert to deal related matters and struck a good balance between reporting and advising.”
