Our skills and experience enable us to fund a variety of scenarios; from growth to acquisitions (including management buy outs), refinancing and restructures. Whatever the loan purpose, our aim is to become a long-term funding partner to the businesses that we support.
Acquisitions & Growth
We can structure bespoke facilities within the tight timescales that event driven transactions like acquisitions, MBOs, and EOTs demand. We also provide funding for organic growth.
Refinance & Working Capital
We can structure flexible solutions to refinance existing debt facilities and provide additional working capital where required.
We also have specialist expertise in funding businesses backed by lower mid-market private equity investors and for businesses in the healthcare and leisure sectors.
To serve the needs of the lower mid-market sector we have established a team of credit and origination specialists dedicated to private equity transactions.
A critical sector of the economy with heightened prominence since the Covid pandemic, we focus on supporting businesses that have a minimum of 2-3 assets with funding for growth, acquisitions and refinancing purposes.
Often seen as an out of favour sector, we assess businesses in the leisure industry on their individual merits. We support restaurants, pubs and hotels with funding for growth, acquisitions, working capital and refinancing.
