Charterhouse Voice & Data is a leading mid-market unified communications, secure networking, digital transformation and cyber security business based in the UK and internationally.

The multi award winning business has seen significant growth through the targeting of enterprise grade clients and building annuity revenues across its growing suite of services.

The investment by August Equity provides an exciting new chapter for Charterhouse to accelerate growth and secures funding to embark on a buy and build strategy. The existing management team has been backed to continue to build on this transformative phase.

M&A Partner Paul Russell said, "The deal represents a great result for both parties bringing together a highly skilled management team and an investor with genuine appetite to help the business reach the next level. We are delighted to complete another deal in this thriving sub sector"

After an extensive process to choose an advisor, we engaged the BDO M&A team led by Paul Russell.

The team’s views on the market and valuations proved to be spot on, and their accessibility throughout the process was appreciated. BDO listened and understood our requirements, adding considerable value throughout the process. We found the team to be not just excellent leaders and advisors, but a great sounding board who brought calmness and perspective throughout the transaction. We found the breadth of the team at BDO a real asset, enlisting the services of other departments such as their specialist tax team. The team introduced Paul Morris, whose PE background proved hugely helpful during the process, adding invaluable insight to the world of PE and reinforcing the belief that partnering with BDO was the correct decision.

A big thank you to the whole team at BDO, for helping to deliver the outcome that we desired, in a warm, professional and supportive manner. I would not hesitate in recommending them.
