Buying, selling or raising finance are not part of the everyday for most businesses, yet we deal with them routinely. Our Corporate Finance division work with our clients and other advisors, tailoring our services to the specific needs of our client. Areas of our expertise include:

Management Succession

We have considerable experience advising clients on Management Buy-Outs (MBO), Management Buy-Ins (MBI) and wider Employee Ownership succession.  We often act as lead advisors negotiating the deal, introducing the right funders, and structuring the transaction in a commercially appropriate, tax-efficient manner.

Acquisitions

We support clients in identifying and approaching target businesses, including those not actually for sale.  We typically then lead key negotiations to ensure the best deal and structure, working alongside lawyers to minimise the buyer’s risk.

Business Sales

We often work with owners well in advance of a sale to prepare the business in order to maximise its value.  Well prepared, or late in the day, our hands-on and commercially-tuned team are committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for business owners – whether that involves a trade buyer, VC/private equity or a UK/international corporate.

Valuations

We provide a wide range of valuation services for a variety of circumstances, including:  valuations for M&A deals, restructuring, shareholder disputes, tax purposes, expert witness, funding and investment requirements.

 

Due Diligence

We can provide both vendor and acquisitional due diligence.  Financial due diligence is a critical aspect of any transaction as it can affect the purchase price or even the decision on whether to proceed with the transaction.  We tailor the scope of our work to ensure our due diligence is focused on the areas that are critical to the business.

 

Raising Finance

Our relationships with equity, mezzanine and debt funders – combined with our knowledge on how to structure a proposal, assists clients in seeking and obtaining the right kind of funding for their business.
