Growing your business the fast track way
Acquisitions are a risky but potentially highly beneficial way to fast-track growth.
A business which is either looking to add capacity or capability can mitigate many of the risks associated with a deal by ensuring the right target is sought, based on a sound strategic rationale.
In the past our clients have used us to develop this strategic understanding, to scan their sector to identify suitable targets, to establish efficient tactics for making an approach and to negotiate good value for the acquisition. In some cases an acquirer may also need help sourcing external funding for the deal.
Throughout an acquisition, we are able to advise on transitional arrangements and always ensure the acquiring business is not exposed to unacceptable levels of risk.

Our other corporate finance services
We can help managements understand the potential exits available to them and have worked with some of our clients over a number of years to ensure they have the best chance of a successful exit.
We are highly experienced in advising our clients on all aspects of an MBO. This includes advising on more challenging deals, such as an MBI or where a business is not on the market but where a management team feel they should have an equity interest of their own.
It is critical that companies raise the right sort of finance, at the right moment in their development. We offer our clients a highly professional approach, enabling them to avoid the many potential pitfalls of a process. This includes the ability to introduce the opportunity to a wide base of appropriate investors, helping owners select the right long-term partner and negotiating suitable terms for the transaction.
When available, taking on a suitable level of debt is often the most efficient way to fund a business. However, the legacy of the financial crisis has made this sort of borrowing a far more challenging task.
The valuation of companies is at the core of our corporate finance offering. This real world experience enables us to offer comprehensive valuation reports for businesses of all shapes and sizes.
