Eight Advisory supported CBPE portfolio company BKL on its acquisition of CFPro
The Eight Advisory provided buyside financial & tax due diligence, tax structuring advice and funds flow support to CBPE portfolio company BKL on its acquisition of CFPro.
CFPro specialise in strategic support for high-growth businesses, helping them to strengthen their financial operations and realise their ambitions. CFPro’s advisory and compliance services cover transactions such as acquisitions, IPOs and funding; guidance for finance teams through phases of major change; and corporate governance support to ensure that clients meet their compliance responsibilities.
CFPro have an office in Central London. Their team will continue trading under the CFPro name as part of BKL.
BKL, in combining with CFPro, becomes a team of over 250 people including 25 partners. This follows the merger of Landau Baker Chartered Accountants with BKL in May 2023.
This also builds on BKL’s growth at partner level in April 2023 when two new audit partners were appointed: Nick Bishop, who was internally promoted; and Geeta Morgan, who joined from Mazars in April 2023. Duncan Hardy, BKL’s Chief Digital Officer since 2019, was also appointed as a partner in April 2023.
Lee Brook, BKL CEO, says:
“It’s exciting to welcome CFPro to BKL. We’ve always enjoyed serving as trusted advisers to ambitious clients; CFPro’s vast experience in this area will enable us to provide an even higher level of support to fast-growing businesses.”
“We know that CFPro’s team will become invaluable to our clients and we can’t wait to begin collaborating.”
Barbara Spurrier, founder of CFPro and now BKL partner, says:
“Joining forces with BKL is a great opportunity for CFPro and our clients. Providing the best possible support to forward-looking businesses has always been our priority at CFPro. Working together with BKL’s business specialists, our clients will benefit from greater breadth and depth to that support.”
“As a well-established business taking its own step forward, the CFPro team and I are looking forward to exploring the new opportunities available to us and our clients, and building relationships with our many new colleagues.”
We’re delighted to make CFPro’s considerable expertise available to BKL clients who are considering the next phase in their business growth.
