The BDO M&A team recently acted as lead advisor to the shareholders of Learoyd Packaging on the sale of the company to Coveris, a leading global packaging company.    

In recent years, Learoyd have invested in the long-term growth of the company, to develop a state of the art flexible packaging facility with extensive design capabilities. The backing of Coveris will enable Learoyd to deliver accelerated growth in a market which offers considerable expansion and cross-selling opportunities both in the UK and internationally.      

This deal further enhances BDO’s credentials in the wider packaging market following a number of recent transactions.     

"From the launch of the project right through to completion the whole team at BDO delivered a very professional and integrated process. Communication both internally and with us as clients was first class; we were involved in all the important aspects of the process and in all key decisions, but were not inundated with unnecessary detail. We felt we were part of one team with a common objective and were superbly supported all the way through the transaction".           

Allan Ferguson, Managing Director, Learoyd Packaging (Holdings) Limited
