How it works:

We are specialists in crafting and financing “win-win” deals to allow the owners of private companies to exit. We have access to finance from a private equity fund, plus a wide range of commercial funders and we also have a network of High Net Worth investors for the right deals.

In the current economic climate, virtually all private businesses are bought in two phases: An initial payment normally paid within 3 days of legal completion and then a portion of the agreed sale price on a deferred basis, typically between 12-36 months.


The reasons why there is a deferred portion are:

1. Our panel of funders and investors will not allow us to pay all of the value up front because of the risks associated with private businesses, especially in these difficult times.

2. With no disrespect meant, a deferred portion keeps vendors honest - when a vendor knows they must be honest about future value, their interests are aligned with us as a buyer. We focus on ensuring as much of the cash you have built up in your business is returned to you at the point of completion.  Do not take out cash from the business early - ask us why.

We couldn’t be further from the stereotype of "corporate executives" just crunching numbers.  We love to gain a real understanding of your business and won’t consider taking it on if we don’t think we’re working with the same values.  

Above all else we are committed to ethical, win win deal making. We like to provide elegant solutions for owners of small and medium sized businesses to exit the business with great value, rather than just close the doors.
