Capital Solutions

  • Vision

    We help clients identify strategies to accelerate their value creation and maximise value for all stakeholders.

     

    The route may include organic growth, operational improvements, acquisitions, divestitures, or a combination of these.

     

    Being exceptionally client-centric, we analyse a client’s objectives, validate their plans, and we advise them on how to optimise outcomes.

  • Debt

    We analyse risk and return metrics to optimise debt funding to enable clients to achieve their strategic objectives.

     

    Our debt advisory work includes raising growth capital, financing acquisitions, refinancing existing facilities, asset-backed lending, mezzanine finance and commercial mortgages.

  • Equity

    We work with clients to evaluate the degree to which equity financing will be desirable to achieve ambitions over other sources of funding.

     

    We carefully model future cash flows to determine a realistic valuation that limits dilution and attracts a suitable investor.  We look at a prospective transaction from an investor’s perspective to address potential issues early.

  • Strategic Advisory

    On the strength of our relationships, we advise on strategy, identifying key valuation milestones, enhancing the predictability of cash flow and establishing an optimal track record.

  • Growth

    We often work with a client on a retained basis over a period which can be several years in length, advising on key strategic issues. These issues include new market entry, geographic expansions and gaining market share.

  • M&A Buy Side

    We leverage our strategic review of all potential targets to identify the optimal value enhancing opportunities. We bring to bear tactical know-how to deliver tangible results.

  • M&A Sell Side

    We develop a bespoke plan for monetising our client’s business.

     

    We isolate key value drivers, prepare the business for sale, target the most appropriate investors and execute on a realistic schedule while preserving absolute confidentiality.

  • Valuations

    We view valuations as more of an art than a science.

     

    Any asset or business is influenced by a unique mix of quantitative and qualitative factors.

     

    We tailor each valuation assignment to reflect the specific strengths and weaknesses, macroeconomic factors and regulatory and technology change into consideration.

  • Exit

    The sale of a business may arise for a variety of reasons including: succession of a family-owned business; disposal of an ‘orphan’ subsidiary to focus operations; industry consolidation in a drive for scale economics; financial distress; liquidity requirement of shareholders; or an aggressive approach from a strategic buyer, to name a few.

     

    A professional sales process will optimise outcomes.
