Acquisition Finance

Our banking team assists its corporate colleagues with the funding and security arrangements associated with share and asset based transactions. The teams work together on an integrated basis to ensure we provide a cost-effective and timely service for our clients.

The current economic climate has resulted in the traditional funding structures for corporate transactions being revisited. A successful outcome can often now depend on the ability of advisers to assist in finding suitable alternatives to meet the needs of lenders and borrowers alike.

Our team has significant experience in this field and prides itself on being solutions driven. We can assist clients with all aspects of equity and secured debt fundraising for use in corporate transactions and have comprehensive knowledge of the revised expectations and requirements of institutional investors in the current economic cycle.

We have recently acted 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.
