M&A International Snapshots 2022




BDO’s M&A team in Perth, led by Todd Grover, Justin Boyce Cam and Mark Karlson were the lead advisor to Go West on the 100% sale to Kelsian (Sealink) Travel Group, Australia's largest land and marine transport and tourism provider moving more than 206 million customers per year across its business units, also having international bus transport operations in Singapore and the United Kingdom. The Shareholders of Go West Tours completed a AUD114 million landmark deal to sell their premier bus and coach transport business. A home-grown success story, Go West began in 1981 with a single bus and grew to become one of the largest specialty providers of bus transportation services to the Western Australian resources and public transit sectors with a first class safety record. Forging close ties to the booming Western Australian resources market, Go West’s established regional infrastructure across key mining hubs in the Pilbara, Goldfields and South West/ Great Southern regions made the family-owned company an attractive prospect for Kelsian Travel Group looking to expand its portfolio of world class transit providers to the highly attractive mining and resources sector.
