BUILDING A BUSINESS PLAN
Every opportunity is unique and every capital partner's requirements differ.
We seek to identify strategies and create solutions that optimise the investment opportunity for the appropriate capital base:
Long-term, lower-risk core/core+ capital strategies
Opportunistic and special situations investing
Financial strategies - preferred equity/mezzanine finance, joint-ventures, growth-focused minority investments
Our fundamental principle is one of an active asset-manager - turning underwritten business plans into deliverable investments through a "cradle to grave" approach.
We work with our partners to:
Identify and diligence opportunities - develop actionable business plans.
Execute transactions - negotiate with; counterparties; third-party finance providers; management teams and; brands.
Exit the investment - development of the sale "story" and next-buyer investment case; management of the sale process; negotiation with counterparties.
Strategy is underpinned by our focus on operational delivery:
Manage the investment - management oversight (including governance and board representation); creating and managing operational teams; identification and execution of operational asset-management initiatives; capital investment analysis and oversight.
Optimise the investment structure - hold v sell analysis; strategic bolt-ons and opportunistic divestments; corporate structure and tax planning considerations.
