Welcome to the January edition of our Corporate Finance Newsletter 

First of all we’d like to wish you a happy new year and a prosperous 2020. This month’s edition has a focus on equity investment into owner managed businesses given the reported $60bn of dry powder waiting to be invested by private equity, venture capital and private family funds.

We start with an article about proposed changes to legislation in the US put forward by Democratic presidential candidate, Elizabeth Warren which would very much clip the wings of the “masters of the universe” and ask whether such plans could end up being taken seriously in the UK too.

This is followed by an article discussing the merits to business owners of an equity release transaction, and whether this route to exit could be a more attractive option than a one-off deal where you sell 100% of your business. We also ask what may be next for UK M&A before finishing with several snippets covering topical events in the world of M&A which you may have missed over the Christmas and New Year period.
