Restructuring M&A

Preserving equity value. Relieving financial pressure. Using bespoke processes. Experienced deal leaders.

We support sales or acquisitions of businesses at varying points in the corporate life cycle ranging from accelerated M&A, driven by a liquidity event, through to situations which require a considered approach to tackle complex issues as part of the transaction circumstances. At the heart of all our work is our passion to invest in relationships in order to develop effective strategies to generate and preserve value for our clients.

Using our national team of specialists we cut through the complexity to get to the heart of key issues in order to generate and preserve value for stakeholders and achieve the optimal outcome, allowing you to focus on the key business issues and do what you do best.

We work with businesses of all shapes and sizes to understand their strategic ambitions, and unlock complexity, in order to deliver a value driven solution at a pace to suit your timetable. We are experienced in dealing with challenging situations involving a broad range of stakeholders including equity, debt, management, pension schemes, customers, suppliers, and employees, and have a proven track record of delivering outcomes where others have failed.

Bespoke services backed by data and insights

We create bespoke processes to preserve value with flexible timeframes based on the needs of individual businesses.

We also use our specialist data-sharing platform to manage transactions and maximise speed, while still providing the quality of information expected from a full sale process. We leverage our expansive network of investors and debt providers to ensure we find the optimal solution for each situation.

Where timescales are more acute, we specialise in Accelerated M&A (AMA) where our processes are designed to be run in periods as short as ten days and provide an alternative solution to an administration.
