Perhaps an outright sale is not the best solution for your business. Horizon Capital Corporate Finance will endeavor to find the right solution.
We assist in the delicate negotiations between sellers and buyers to ensure that a fair price and appropriate financing structure are achieved.
We assist at sale agreement stage to ensure that the sale and shareholders’ agreements are structured appropriately to maximise tax benefits and to minimise potential risks. We ensure that the sale agreement is structured effectively in terms of gearing, so that the company’s assets and cash flows can be used to fund and secure the cost of acquiring the business.
We assist in the raising and drawdown of the borrowing facility, smoothing out any snags that occur along the way. We work closely with the purchaser during this phase, advising on credit, risk and other issues that may arise.
