Acquisition Finance

Our Acquisition Finance Team specialises in advising in relation to the funding and security arrangements associated with share and asset-based transactions. Working closely with our Corporate Team we work together on an integrated basis to ensure we provide a cost-effective and timely service for our clients.

We act for borrowers, high street banks and other institutional lenders.

Our advice includes advising on facility documentation, security arrangements, priority arrangements involving multiple creditors as well as advising in relation to the underlying acquisition itself. We have particular expertise in the healthcare and education sectors and are used to dealing with clients based in multiple jurisdictions.

Examples of our experience include:

  • Acting for both Santander and Lloyds TSB in respect of funding arrangements of up to £7m for the acquisition of businesses in the healthcare and education sectors.
  • Acting for The Property Franchise Group plc in relation to a £12.5m facility from Barclays to support its acquisition of Hunters Property plc, which took effect on 19 March 2021.

Acting for Just Develop It Limited in relation to a £15m facility from a specialist lender, in part to fund taking a majority position in a technology company, which completed in November 2020.
