BDO Canada is pleased to congratulate Lynx Equity Limited on its recent acquisition of Blind Bay Village Grocer Ltd., earlier this year.

“BDO established a thorough and transparent process, guiding us every step of the way through initial preparations, negotiations, due diligence and tax planning,” said Colby Woodhead, owner of Blind Bay Village Grocer. “The team was attentive to the aspects which were most important to us and their expert advice proved to be invaluable in closing this transaction.”

BDO’s Transaction Advisory Services team acted as the exclusive advisor to Blind Bay Village Grocer, assisting the business owners, Colby & Annette Woodhead, throughout the transaction process. The BDO team included Adam Mallon & Albert Kouzminski, with additional tax and accounting support from John White & Cory Neil.
