HMT first advised on the MBO of Indigo in 2016 supported by Maven Capital Partners and YFM Equity Partners. Maven and YFM invested £12 million into the business including additional funds to support a buy and build strategy.
The acquisition of Belcom adds a range of additional services and geographical reach that will significantly strengthen Indigo’s capabilities, customer offering and market position.

“We are delighted to have advised Indigo on their first acquisition as part of their buy and build strategy. Belcom has built an attractive customer base over the years and the acquisition of the business will strengthen Indigo’s offering. This transaction is testament to the quality of HMT’s integrated corporate finance offering as we provided Indigo with financial and tax due diligence as well as building a robust financial model. We are looking forward to working with them again in the future.”
