All Star Lanes Limited (ASL)

30 September 2019

Sector

Leisure

Business description

ASL is one of the premier experiential leisure operators in the UK centred around food, drink and bowling

Situation

Financial performance was adversely affected by the disposal of a core site in 2018. A replacement site was opened and has taken time to perform whilst the site established itself. This resulted in cash flow difficulties and a requirement for additional funding and a supportive shareholder to implement a bottom up operational restructuring plan which was mid-implementation.

BDO Role

BDO’s Special Situations M&A Team was introduced to run an accelerated M&A process.

Outcome

Following an extensive sales process BDO delivered a pre-packaged sale to leisure sector specialist Risk Capital as part of its investment roll-up in the sector.
