BDO has advised the shareholders of On The Go in their sale of a majority position to Alcuin Private Equity. The deal represents a new chapter in the growth of the global escorted tours business that has seen substantial growth over the last 20 years. It will continue to be led by MD, Carl Cross, going forward in this exciting opportunity for all involved.
"Selling our business, built up for over twenty years, was a massive decision for us, and one which involved material changes to our lives. We didn’t know where to start and from day one when we met the team at BDO, they guided us through it honestly, professionally, and as if the business was their own. It was a long and complex process and with BDO’s guidance we achieved the perfect deal for ourselves, the business going forward, and everyone involved. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anybody thinking of following this path, or simply looking to grow. Their expertise, particularly in our sector, and their skills as an advisor were invaluable. What a breath of fresh air. Thank you BDO, simply couldn’t have done it without you!"
