MBO completed after successful introductions
Hilton-Baird Financial Solutions has helped an experienced Director to complete a management buyout after facilitating the provision of the additional funding required to complete the transaction.
Although our client had substantial funds to invest, he needed to raise additional capital to finance the gap between his investment and the consideration agreed for the acquisition of the target business.
After exploring a number of potential avenues prior to approaching us, we were able to assist our client in securing the £600,000 required through an invoice finance facility and CBILS loan.
A variety of suitable lenders
A supplier of industrial tools and fasteners, the business our client now owns became available when the two incumbent directors were looking to retire.
With 20 years’ experience in the industrial distribution sector, including nine at Director level, our client was keen to capitalise on the opportunity and was open to a number of different options with regards to financing the acquisition.
After reviewing the company’s financials, we introduced a variety of suitable lenders who were able to structure comprehensive facilities at great value, including commercial mortgage and sale and leaseback options too.
Having considered each of the options available in the context of the company’s asset profile, our client opted for a single funder which was capable of delivering the required balance using two different facilities.
These consisted of a £250,000 loan through the government-backed CBILS scheme, and a £350,000 confidential invoice discounting facility which released cash against the target company’s sales ledger and will continue to provide ongoing cash flow support to the business.
If you’re looking for finance to complete any transaction, whether that’s a management buyout, buy-in or a combination of both, we’d be pleased to help. Contact our team on 0800 9774833 or request a call back here.
