Equity Release and Development Capital

For many successful businesses there comes a point where external funding is required in order to deliver the commercial and personal objectives of the company and its owners. This may include development capital to unlock new commercial growth opportunities, working capital to provide greater trading flexibility or a broader restructuring of an inefficient capital base. External investment may also be raised to allow shareholders to release value tied up in their equity stakes, de-risking their personal position and potentially incentivising other management as part of longer term succession planning.

The options for funding are diverse and constantly changing and through our relationships with funding providers we are able to identify and propose creative and bespoke funding solutions designed to fit your business. From secured and unsecured debt funding from banks or asset based lenders to equity from venture capital funds, regional development agencies or private investors we work with clients to ensure the solution meets the short and longer term requirements of the business.

The introduction of external investors not only delivers the funds required by existing shareholders but can also introduce fresh ideas and strategic challenge along with increased financial and commercial rigour. We look further than the immediate cash benefit to ensure that our clients partner with external funders with complementary skills, vision and objectives who can add incremental value to your business.

The solution may often lie with a combination of funding types and we can help to manage the process of presenting the business, approaching lenders and investors and securing funds.
