Mader Group (ASX:MAD) is a Western Australian mining maintenance business founded in 2005 in the North West region of the Kimberley by Luke Mader, a former diesel mechanic.  The business employs over 1,000 staff and operates as a mobile and fixed plant equipment specialist, servicing civil and mining industries around the world. The company has gone from strength to strength recently, named the Future of Mining’s 2019 Mining Contractor of the Year, successfully completing a $50 million sell down and opening on the Australian Securities Exchange as the largest WA-based listing in four years, up 14% on its first day of trade. The company has a market capitalisation over $200 million and forecast revenue expected to reach $279 million in the year ahead with a focus on international growth.

BDO was engaged by Mader Group to perform the Independent Accountant, Tax Advisor and Auditor roles for their IPO on the Australian Securities Exchange.

The BDO team worked closely with me and my team through the IPO process providing guidance whenever we needed it.  Their Corporate Finance, Tax and Audit teams worked closely together and made sure that any issues were identified and dealt with as early and as smoothly as possible.  Working with a firm with deep experience in IPOs and international businesses was a key element of our successful IPO process.
