Raising Finance

 We advise companies on raising finance from:

  • Private equity providers - for development capital, MBOs and partial sale of shares
  • Banks and alternative debt providers – for M&A and refinancing
  • Capital markets – by preparing companies for IPO and further share issues

Following the financial crisis raising finance is not necessarily more complex but unprepared businesses will suffer high costs and severe management distraction due to extended due diligence and  the risk of incomplete fundraising. We help companies best present themselves and instill confidence in funders.  We reduce the distraction and cost to business by getting companies investment ready and  enable them to negotiate the best terms and structures available.
