Raising capital is a real challenge for SMEs. The application process of debt and equity funders can be very demanding and inevitably there is a heavy focus on financials. Debt funding is very much about affordability and debt service. In contrast, raising equity is more complex, as it will be critical to find the right investor(s) buying into the business at a sensible valuation. We regularly help SMEs in this process, so get in touch if you need support.
We will focus on all matters financial in your Business Plan. For instance, we often augment existing Business Plans with a detailed set of Financial Forecasts, so the numbers stack up. We can also add financial commentary to your plan if required.
Our contacts and research capabilities will enable to identify suitable Funders. We will tailor our search around your requirements. We will present our findings to you and will agree a list of Funders to approach.
We support Management Teams in approaching, corresponding and negotiating with potential Funders.
We are often asked for input on the legal documentations and add value by ensuring that any references to financial or numerical matters are dealt with properly in the documents. We can also oversee the financial due diligence process and ensure the right level of information is provided in a timely manner.
