Our corporate finance team specialises in advising companies looking to sell or make acquisitions, raise funds or IPO by way of a Standard or NEX listing.
We can advise you through the sale, listing or fundraising process from start to finish, assisting with business plans and financial models, valuation of your company or key assets and preparing documentation for a listing or fundraise.
Our team members are all chartered accountants and trained auditors so, unlike many firms, we have worked on both sides of transactions, giving us a clearer perspective of what is required to work successfully with other advisers and completing deals smoothly and efficiently. We also have the advantage of a wide range of expertise (from corporate and personal tax to VAT and company secretarial), all in one office, offering maximum convenience and cost-effectiveness for you.
Our expert team can help you prepare a strategic business plan to meet your objectives, and produce robust financial forecasting models.
We act as a corporate adviser on Standard (LSE) and NEX listings. We will prepare the necessary documents for you, including the prospectus or admission document, and liaise with your other professional advisers and regulatory authority. Once listed, we provide the necessary advice to ensure you continue to comply with the ongoing obligations.
We prepare Information Memoranda for presentation to external funders, providing advice on compliance with financial services regulations and assistance with EIS/SEIS clearances and applications.
For various reasons, businesses need to understand the value they hold, whether in their assets or the value of their own shares. We undertake valuations for sales and acquisitions, shareholder disputes, financial reporting purposes and tax planning. Our team is experienced in dealing with a variety of valuation issues, including valuation of businesses, shares, intangibles and share options. Our knowledge of valuation strategies, combined with our experience, ensures a cost-effective and professional service.
We can also assist with the pricing of share issues where the business is preparing for an IPO or sale, and the valuation of target companies during acquisitions. We can provide valuations where there is a shareholder or matrimonial dispute, damages claims or insured losses. We use a variety of methodologies, techniques and judgement to arrive at an appropriate valuation.
