For one of our customers, we have arranged £150m of funding to support investment into retail stores, depots, software and other business infrastructure.

£12m Development Finance

£8.5m Hire Purchase Finance
Machine leasing enabling our client to invest in state of the art machinery to support new aerospace & car part manufacturing contracts.
£6m International Invoice Finance
As is a common theme for our customers, bank appetite to support your business can change quickly, and traditional banks in particular have a hard time reacting fast to meet their clients demands.
Our customer had successfully grown their business from £40m to £70m turnover yet could not get the desired level of funding from their bank to support growth into international markets.
We were able to move this facility to a more flexible lender, who has also agreed to fund the new ledger from the newly formed dutch arm of the group. The new facility provided additional capital to support the new business launch too.
£4.5m Development Finance
We provided a uniquely structured lease facility as part of a £15m development of a state of the art food distribution centre.
Our client used existing facilities and cash to fund part of the project but our lease facility gave clear tax advantages and helped to substantially ease any cashflow pressure.
Subsea Services Group
£3m Bespoke Software Finance
A bespoke funding solution split between loan and lease finance facilities.
The client was in turnaround stage and we were still able to create a solution that delivered funding for 100% of the projects cost. The client received vital funding to upgrade it's ERP software, allowing it to operate far more efficiently.
Foreign Exchange Consultancy
£1m Growth Capital
Our client came to us seeking external funding for the first time in 12 years to fuel ambitious growth plans. We were able to advise them through the equity vs debt debate and successfully raise £1m of growth capital to support a groundbreaking software development project.
