BDO provided vendor due diligence for the sale of Dovetail Games to Focus Entertainment.

Dovetail Games is a UK headquartered simulation video game developer and publisher, and the global market leader in train simulation for entertainment.

Focus Entertainment is a global video game publisher headquartered in France, with a strong roster of titles including a number of simulation games.

The acquisition of Dovetail is expected to be complementary to Focus Entertainment and values Dovetail's expertise in IP development in simulation.



"I highly recommend Jeff and his team for focussed, commercial, and credible vendor due diligence.  They do good work with commitment and efficiency."

Nick Field, Chief Financial Officer, Dovetail Group


"We have enjoyed working with the Dovetail team, initially in preparation for a possible IPO, and then when their plans changed we updated and revised our work to provide financial and tax due diligence to support their sale process and ultimately the sale to Focus Entertainment."

Jeff Harris, Partner, BDO LLP
