Corporate Finance

From handshake to handover, our corporate finance team knows what’s needed at every intricate stage of your unique corporate deal. Plus, our membership of Baker Tilly International puts major global credentials in our back pocket. 

But what does it really mean, this term “corporate finance”? What will you get by working with MHA MacIntyre Hudson’s business experts? Here’s how we work.

We partner with you

We feel like we say this a lot, but it’s true: when you work with MHA MacIntyre Hudson, you get a true partner who’s there with you for the long haul. Your partner will investigate options for funding and help guide and advise you on what works best for you. They’ll find potential partners for a joint venture to help your growth, and take care of all the paperwork to get the sale of your business done compliantly, and in the most tax efficient way.

We walk with you, step by step

It’s a partnership in action as well as name. Let’s say you are looking for an injection of capital to give your business a new lease of life: we’ll work to gain a detailed understanding of your corporate objectives, and help you to prepare a robust business plan and financial projections to present to potential funders. We have strong relationships with both high street and niche providers of debt and equity funding, and we’ll talk with you about the pros and cons of each. While we’ll always recommend an option with sound reasoning, we’re ultimately there to help you make the decision that works for you. And, when the decision is made, we’ll take care of the detail so you can focus on your next phase.

We help you maximise your potential

Yes, your business growth is what we care about – whether that growth comes through funding we help you acquire, through a merger or acquisition, or through a straight-out sale. We’re with you every step of the way, communicating regularly, keeping on top of the details, providing updates, and being completely transparent. Your trust in us is what will make this partnership work. 

So pick up the phone or get in touch, and let’s talk about how we can partner on your corporate finance needs.
