Corporate Finance Deal Announcement: Expamet

29th May 2014

We are delighted to announce the completion of the MBO of Expamet.  The MBO team was led by Nigel Dickinson.  Funding was provided by GE Capital, the management team and a private overseas investor.

The deal was successfully led by Laurence Whitehead, Craig Chamberlain and Brad Agnew.  Further support was also provided by our tax team, led by Rachel Salter.  We assisted management in the negotiation and the structure of the debt and equity packages and assisted in securing the required funding.  The successful completion of this deal in the current tough economic climate demonstrates the strength of the management team and their product offerings.  Our team’s track record and experience was paramount in being able to assist the team in sourcing and securing funding in a difficult market and we are delighted with the outcome for all parties involved.

We wish Nigel and the team every success for the future and look forward to working with them further over the coming months and years.
