Whatever stage your business is at – from start-up to exit planning, and everything in between including growth, diversification, turnaround and ownership transfers – our specialist corporate finance team can help you meet your business goals.
Mergers and acquisitions
If you are considering a merger or acquisition, we can support you throughout the process, including managing the valuation, acquisition strategy, target identification, funding, negotiations, deal structure, due diligence, tax consultancy and transaction process to achieve your business goals. We can also assist with any finance raising that could be necessary in order to bring your plans to fruition.
Management buy outs and buy ins
MBOs and MBIs can create significant wealth for those entering and exiting a company, and they also provide an opportunity to retain expertise, incentivise staff and restructure an organisation. We will work alongside you to project manage every stage and advise on strategy, deal structure, valuation, funding and tax planning to ensure a smooth handover and successful completion.
Exit and succession planning
What you ultimately want from your business should be factored into your business strategy. Is it your pension or your legacy? Is it the key to a certain lifestyle or a springboard to greater things? We will help you devise a comprehensive exit strategy that peace of mind for the future.
Company structures often develop organically over time, and so may not be conducive to the aims or objectives of your business. We can help you to restructure your business in line with your strategy – this could be for tax reasons, perhaps, or because you want to start a new division, or are planning to make an acquisition or dispose of part of your business.
Working capital offers the freedom to make strategic decisions, so if it’s an injection of cash that your business needs to take the next step, then we can advise on a broad range of finance options. We can also help with finance required for a variety of reasons – maybe to aid cashflow or an acquisition, an MBO/MBI, or the purchase of an asset, amongst others.
