We advise privately owned companies, their owners and management teams on raising equity and growth capital.
The current market offers an array of flexible capital and funding alternatives appropriate for the following situations:
- A complete sale and exit for business owners
- A partial sale, realising cash for all shareholders whilst retaining a meaningful equity stake
- The buy-out of those shareholders who want to sell, whilst investing alongside those shareholders who wish to retain an equity stake in the business
- Secondary buy-outs of existing private equity backed businesses
- Funding support to management teams, both incumbent and buy-in, who wish to own the business they run/are targeting
- Funding support to accelerate the growth of a business, for example making an acquisition or entering new markets
We are experienced in all these types of transactions.
We have strong relationships across the funding market, covering public markets, mainstream mid-market private equity funds, multi-billion institutional funds, sovereign wealth funds, family offices and alternative non-bank debt funds around the world. This gives us a deep insight into public market sentiment, fund strategies and life cycles, which are a key driver of investment appetite, and ensures we know 'the Art of the Possible' in terms of structure and equity investment terms.
