Drinks all round: Pubs acquisition marks first M&A deal for Bosham Capital Advisors
Bosham Capital Advisors (BCA) has been working on behalf of British Country Inns (BCI) to find a buyer for their impressive portfolio of 16 traditional pubs. The first deal has just been completed with the sale of two pubs. The acquisition has been made by Liberation Group buying the two freehold pubs for an undisclosed sum. Both pubs are located in Somerset: the Lime Kiln Inn, Knole and Beambridge, Sampford Arundel.
The BCI group consists of four companies originally financed via the EIS by Smith & Williamson. Chairman of the companies Martin Sherwood is Senior Partner of Enterprise Investment Partners (EIP), a specialist smallcap corporate finance boutique with particular focus on the tax-efficient market, which provides management and investor relations services to the companies.
