We are delighted to have advised Bambino Mio on their investment by BGF.

Bambino Mio creates long-lasting, stylish and affordable reusable nappies for babies from birth to potty-training. The company brings together a team of passionate minds to create products which are better for babies, better for parents, and better for the planet as a whole. Products are sold in over 50 countries via an omnichannel approach including e-commerce, Amazon and in-store retail.  After a number of high growth years Bambino Mio sought to find a strategic investment partner to support its future growth. 

Our team had built up a relationship with Guy and Jo Schanschieff a number of years prior to the transaction. 

We understood the key value drivers within the business and what the shareholders were looking for in a strategic partner.  The latter was key as it was imperative that any partner was entirely aligned with the Company purpose. 

We worked with our private equity and international teams to introduce suitable ESG and impact focused investors, and also generalists who were focused on the space. 

We ran a tight process with vendor commercial and financial diligence supporting us to progress significantly with interested parties while maintaining competitive tension and driving a strong deal for the shareholders. 

BGF offers the business a supportive partner with 100% alignment and an ambition to support the growth strategy and purpose of the business. 

Testimonial

The Grant Thornton corporate finance team delivered a fantastic outcome for us with a true strategic partner. The transaction provides the business with the right support and capital to achieve its full potential as the leading reusable nappy brand around the world and continue its growth in existing and new territories.
