At Proventure, we can assist with the following:
- Companies looking to fulfil business expansion plans
- Performing mergers and acquisitions
- Securing backing for MBI’s/MBO’s
The current reluctance of banking institutions to invest in businesses means that that a broad network of contacts has become critical to the success of a refinancing project. We have strong direct connections with a number of venture capital institutions, commercial banks, asset lenders, private equity, business angels and providers of specialist financial instruments. These connections continue to enable us to successfully actively advise and project-manage companies through sometimes difficult negotiations.
To ensure the integrity of our service to our clients, we act only on behalf of client businesses seeking finance. We do not advise or seek any fees from investors who, in conjunction with their professional advisers, must make their own decision regarding the suitability of any project for investment.
This is part of the holistic approach Proventure takes to working with businesses. We strive to understand your particular business needs – your future plans and the challenges you face. We will work with you, using our extensive market knowledge to help acquire the funding required.
We deal with a number of refinancing models that include:
- Existing shareholders and directors funds (“owner financing”)
- Overdraft financing
- Trade credit
- Equity finance
- Business angel financing
- Venture capital
- Factoring and invoice discounting
- Hire purchase and leasing
- Merchant banks (medium to longer term loans)
While each of the above has its own nuances, we approach each of them with the same thoroughness and rigour to provide you with open, clear and honest advice. We tailor our recommendation to your skill sets and aspirations while working to provide a complete service.
One of the routes to re-financing is through management buy-ins. Our experience in this area has allowed us to develop a process, which has proved successful and popular with clients. From helping to identify viable opportunities, through to securing funding and advice on the appointment of appropriate solicitors and reporting accountants, we can manage a deal from inception to completion. This allows us to offer a complete service that matches clients’ skill sets with any business opportunities that may be available.
One of our USP’s is the ability to fill any gaps in existing or proposed management structures through the recruitment, search and selection side of our business.
We are happy to chat through your requirements and options in more detail, to determine what you are trying to achieve – it is only then that we can ascertain what will be right for you.
