Corporate break-out & equity escape

Industry – Road haulage

We supported a seasoned industry CEO on leaving a highly reputable private equity sponsor, having taken the business from loss-making to significantly profitable over three years our client wanted to work for himself. We found, negotiated and funded a management buy-in for a seasoned niche haulier, which our client now owns 100%. We will continue to support him on a buy-and-build strategy to take the brand national.

The next generation

Industry – Hazardous Waste

We enabled second line leadership to buy-out the 20yr incumbent owner. Having built and delivered industry leading growth and profitability, the vendor got a great price on exit and knew that his business (which felt like a family member) would be looked after. Management have now been liberated and fully rewarded to take the business onto its next phase of development.

Equity escape

Industry - financial services 

With high-net-worth shareholders having taken majority control of our clients business, we led a refinance and capital restructure that allowed incumbent management to regain control. Our deal allowed management to widen the equity incentives offered to the remaining Board members, ensuring that key staff were retained and incentivised.
