Why us.
We’ve cracked the code for successful M&A, Divestments and Alliance management. With over 20 years of peak performance and a suite of best in class proprietary tools, BTD drives your success, not just downside protection.
We service every part of the deal life cycle from target approach to operating model design, integration roadmap and programme management. We combine hands-on rigor with data clarity and actionable intelligence.

BTD ensures deal success by providing resources, guidance, structure, direction, tools and support across all aspects of the deal lifecycle, pre and post. We build custom programmes that include turnkey business intelligence product offerings.


We’ll empower you to

  • Achieve deal benefits & value
  • Maximise deal success rate
  • Pursue and deliver excellence in your inorganic growth strategy

The complexity of pre-deal due diligence and its relationship to successful post-merger integration requires thoughtful identification and use of advisers. BTD’s experience and professionalism has contributed to our confidence that this deal will create meaningful value for Glatfelter’s shareholders.

Chris Astley, Senior Vice President, Business Unit President, Glatfelter

We chose BTD in favour of other potential partners due to their customised, customer-focussed and flexible approach which did not come at any expense in depth-of-knowledge and practical hands-on experience in both the technical and cultural/softer aspects of M&A.

Monika Wiaderkiewicz, Transformation Program Manager, innogy

We built a strong relationship with BTD through the process, and I trusted them to let me know what was good for my business, even if it might not immediately be best for them.

Andrew Reynolds, Finance Director, Kallo Foods

BTD played a significant part in the acquisition process, and analysis from their cultural snapshot survey was useful to the entire management team. I would recommend that anyone considering an international acquisition should think about taking similar steps and would not hesitate to recommend BTD to other companies.

Ian Bowles, former CEO, Tribal Group

The assistance BTD provided was pivotal in targeting a number of high profile, high-value companies. The work performed was invaluable in providing a snapshot of the potential acquisitions scene within the UK marketplace.

Stuart Phythian, Managing Director, Watts Water UK

BTD brought a specific set of skills and experience to support our team when planning a large and complex merger. In particular their experience in creating effective change management plans and understanding of the challenges when merging very different international cultures was invaluable.

Kathy Swindley, Group HR Director, Digital Entertainment

The value BTD adds to our integration journey is huge. I needed fresh eyes with a personal, agile and flexible approach, BTD did an assessment of our journey and quickly identified 3 core focus areas. The team blends in with us, adds experience and expertise and get things done at speed.

Claire-Marie Nasr, Head of M&A Integration, Dentsu
