Buy and Build is an increasingly popular route to growing a business
An investor or company seeks to grow the overall value of their business or investment through a series of additional acquisitions. We have a strong track record of helping mid-sized firms grow rapidly through funding these strategies.
Funding the strategy
Executed well, a buy and build strategy can create substantial value and these results can be achieved much more rapidly than they can via the organic route. Seeking external debt to fund these strategies comes with many benefits and things to consider:
- TRANSACTION SIZE
Given the typical transaction size, few businesses can finance multiple acquisitions from retained cash on their balance sheet.
- DEBT VS EQUITY
Lowering the weighted average cost of capital could improve equity returns. You can also benefit from the tax deductibility of the interest charge.
- EXPERT LENDER
Working with an expert lender that specialises in structuring and delivering these types of complex facilities can ensure deals are properly structured, stress-tested and optimized.
