Corporate Finance

Converting your business aspirations into reality often involves a lot of background work, protracted negotiation, additional funding, and objective specialist advice. We will take time to understand your ultimate goals and objectives as well as your strategic plan, to provide you with a range of advisory and financial services that will support and guide your venture through to successful completion of a business sale or acquisition.

Whether you want to raise finance or buy or sell a company, we can value your business based on its asset base, realistic financial forecasts and key factors affecting your industry sector to make sure that we can establish an accurate figure and present it in a clear way that is easy to understand.

A well-planned strategic business acquisition can add instant value to your organisation, but there are often many complex hurdles to overcome before you can toast your success. At Rowleys, we have experts on hand who can carry out the due diligence necessary to reassure you that your target acquisition is financially, legally and fiscally sound.

We will carry out in depth research into the company’s reputation and background, financial systems, controls and records and analysis of the taxation position, to establish whether the business is all that it appears to be. We can also highlight any areas of concern that might warrant further investigate before you make a business critical decision.

Identifying and communicating your business’s strengths is key to its future success and development, but it is also essential to focus on the current financial wellbeing. Cashflow forecasting and financial modelling is critical to making strategic decisions and should form the basis of your business plan, to demonstrate sensible projection methods and credible growth plans.

Your strategic business plan not only helps you to plan for the future, but can also demonstrate to potential funders, investors and financiers how realistic you are, as well as how ambitious. Developing accurate, achievable statistics in a well thought out and professional method, can only help to boost your credibility and the appetite of others to work with you.

With significant changes to our economic climate, there is a backlog of investment in infrastructure and pressures on funding and liquidity, but we can help you to assess the commercial feasibility of your proposals, accurately forecast the benefits, structure negotiations in the most cost-efficient way and quantify the level of risk involved in completing the venture. When properly combined, your vision together with our financial expertise, commercial acumen and strategic planning will put you in the best position to identify and secure a robust funding solution.

Even though full bank security is not always available, many businesses are often surprised to learn just how keen the banks are to lend to a compelling strategic acquisition. We have developed strong, reliable contacts with all the mainstream high street and business banks who are aware of our expertise in this area, having worked in conjunction with them on many corporate finance assignments. We are therefore ideally placed to introduce you to a lender with whom you will have the best chance of success and we can support you in preparing your strategic justification proposal.

Having been involved with corporate deals at all levels, from commercial advice at the planning stages right through to complete new group restructures, we can tailor our services to your specific needs and use our specialist expertise to help you close a deal that is right for you.
