BDO provided vendor and tax due diligence services to Childs Farm Limited on the sale of the company to PZ Cussons plc.

Childs Farm is the UK's No. 1 selling baby and personal care brand. Its products are specifically developed for sensitive skin and the company's reputation has been impeccable. 

The company is focused on achieving strong growth in the future under the management of a new owner. 


“The BDO team were a key part in providing a detailed, risk based, Vendor due-diligence report which ultimately led to the successful sale of the business. The VDD report was comprehensive, thorough and extremely valuable in creating both confidence and reliability with potential investors which ultimately led to a successful sale. Their tenacity to provide not only a strong report but also to challenge management and shareholder on the business helped to strengthen the business case and ultimately increase the value of the business. I would whole heartedly recommend Matt, Darren and team to anyone entering into a similar transaction and wish them the best of luck.”

Andrew Cooke, CFO of Childs Farm
