Management Buy-Outs (MBOs)

If you have a high-quality, effective management team and want to acquire the business you work for, we can advise you on this complex process, including negotiations with the vendor(s) and funding.

Business acquisition

A strategic acquisition can supplement your organic growth and rapidly increase the value of your business. We can help you understand the market, develop a strategy, negotiate with targets and find you the best funding solution.

Business sale

Whether you are selling your entire business or divesting a subsidiary or operation, professional advice is essential to ensure you achieve maximum value. It is crucial to start this process as early as possible so that we can identify the best route to market, ensure your business is in the best shape it can be and help you find a quality buyer who will give you what your business is worth.

Fundraising – debt and equity

As your business grows, its needs for funding change. New finance can help you take advantage of new opportunities and increase the growth potential of your business. Whether for start-up, development capital, working capital or term funding, we can find a solution that suits your personal and strategic objectives.

Tax planning / structuring

A key part of the process is understanding your tax obligations both for the business and personally and getting it wrong or leaving it too late can have a devastating impact on the value to receive for your business. Our dedicated tax team can help you navigate the most effective structure to maximise the value of your deal.
