Raising finance

Many successful businesses will reach a point where internal funding sources are insufficient for the growth path of the company. At this stage, raising debt or equity finance provides an injection of external capital that can unlock opportunities for its growth.

We work closely with owner-managers to critically assess their long term plans for the business and funding requirements to determine the most suitable forms of debt or equity finance. We analyse solutions that minimise the dilution of existing shareholders, allowing them to maximise shareholder value.

We advise businesses on raising private equity finance for:

  • growth capital
  • development capital
  • management buyouts
  • share sales

We also help source debt finance from banks and other providers for:

  • refinancing
  • M&A

We introduce clients to key contacts in corporate banking or private equity, and we have a track record of helping businesses present themselves in the best light to raise finance on good terms. Typically we identify the most active players in a targeted market from our network of venture capitalists, business angels, banks and private equity houses.

For examples of our work on raising finance see the Deals page.

Please get in touch if you would like to have an informal discussion about your business plans or requirements.
