Accelerated M&A

Protecting value when cash is constrained and time is limited

If your company is running short of cash with only a few weeks to implement a solution, we can run an accelerated merger and acquisition process to seek urgent investment. 

What we offer

We might advise a company with an urgent and critical cash requirement to undertake a funding, investment or sale transaction within one to six weeks. An existing stakeholder, a special situations investor or an alternative funder may participate when other funding options have been exhausted.

The limited time available accelerates the M&A processes, which aim for a proposed transaction that would avoid the need for a formal insolvency procedure. We will work with you to source relevant potential investors, providing them with necessarily limited information on which to base any offer. It will be a fast-moving exercise where decisions are made quickly. Success will require clear evidence of a viable business, a strong team and a route through to investment returns.

Sometimes market appetite for such equity is absent and potential investors will proceed only on the basis of a business and asset transaction. In the event that no other solution was available, the business and assets sale would be executed by an administrator, probably in a pre-packaged or pre-pack administration. The net proceeds would in due course be distributed amongst the company’s creditors in accordance with the statutory order of priorities.

Whatever the form of the eventual transaction, our focus is on maximising value for the company’s stakeholders.
