M&A and Capital Raising

Our merchant banking division, Venture Capital Partners, helps high growth and mature companies with mergers, acquisitions and private placements (equity and debt), both from a sell-side and buy-side advisory perspective.

Our global investor relationships give us an in-depth knowledge of what acquirers and investors look for, meaning that we are able to provide impartial and objective advice on the full range of strategic options available to our clients.

We tailor our advice on a case-by-case basis. After a period of consultation we aim to agree on the appropriate strategy, working closely with our clients to enhance the attractiveness of their business to potential investors. We advise on the business plan, management presentation and financial projections; the valuation and how it can be maximized; the optimum capital structure and terms of investment, and we then approach a targeted list of family office, institutional and industry investors globally.

Our discreet, proven, step-by-step process is managed to ensure that our clients can remain focused on running their businesses while we concentrate on building competitive tension and leading the legal and due diligence negotiations with investors to achieve the best terms for our clients.
