Raising acquisition capital

We source capital from one or more of banks, venture capital, private equity and private investor groups depending on the situation. As soon as the acquisition has been identified, and terms agreed, the capital raising process can begin.

We can assist the client in the development of a detailed financial model and forecasts of the combined business if required.

We source capital to support your acquisition strategy.

We then prepare an Information Memorandum, in conjunction with management and its other advisors which provides a detailed overview of the company and the target acquisition, highlighting the key investment characteristics and growth potential of the combined business.

We prepare a list of perhaps 30 to 40 potential investors which have appropriate funding characteristics including their investment type (debt, equity or a combination of the two), investment criteria, the size of typical investments and the approval process.

We then approach these potential investors on our client's behalf and send them a short summary of the company and its key investment characteristics. Interested parties are then required to sign a Confidentiality Agreement before being sent the full Information Memorandum.

AHV will co-ordinate follow up meetings and information exchanges and will advise on and negotiate valuations, transaction structures, term sheets and manage the execution of the capital raising until completion.
