IndustryBusiness Services & Technology & Media
Client nameByBox Group Holdings Limited

ByBox specialises in smart locker technology and field service solutions.


Working with Francisco Partners will enable ByBox to accelerate the deployment of its ground-breaking ‘Konnect’ app-locker technology both in the UK and across key global markets. ByBox’s app-lockers systematically address the core challenges of the field service supply chain.


The transaction marks an exit for LDC, who provided £37.5m of development capital in 2016. In the last two years the business has grown significantly and doubled in value.


"BDO did a great job helping us to articulate the value drivers of our business. There was tremendous time pressure but the team took time to understand our business in detail and were proactive in anticipating the investor’s questions. This, along with BDO’s positive flexible approach, allowed us to get ahead of the curve and deliver a successful transaction in a short timeframe at the originally offered price."


Peter Rowse, ByBox Group CFO
