Corporate Finance


Our experienced team of advisers make buying a business as easy as possible.

Today more than ever a business can’t afford to stand still. While there are a number of ways to grow, acquisition is still the fastest ways to increase the value, turnover and profitability of your business.

The only problem is with so many moving parts at play during any transaction, it’s estimated that more than 90% of corporate acquisitions still don’t end up going quite to plan.

This is where can help.

At Rowleys, our hugely experienced team know what is required to successfully run an acquisition from offering strategic advice on what type of acquisition may fit, to support on the terms of final completion.

Our experienced team can complete the financial due diligence process. We will work with you on what is important from a financial and operational perspective and agree a detailed scope for the due diligence exercise. We are agile in our approach and have experience of performing agreed upon procedures that are very specific to a transaction.

We will work with you to take account of the findings of the due diligence process and assist you in establishing how that may impact the transaction, the price or the integration process.

Although every deal is different, we can draw on the combined expertise of our team and our external network to work out the best way to structure, progress and ultimately complete your transaction. And if additional advice is required to get your deal over the line, we will introduce you to our network of trusted contacts in the legal, private equity and banking sectors.

Alternatively, if you are looking to take over a business via a management buy-in (MBI), management buyout (MBO) or vendor initiated management buyout (VIMBO) we can also help.

We will make sure you find the more realistic and achievable way to take control of the business, guide you through the process and, if required, find the right person to provide any additional finance you might need.

If you are looking to buy or takeover a business and would like to discuss how best to set things in motion, please call us on 0116 282 7000 or email us at

Our experienced team of advisers will help with your fundraising.

Working high growth businesses we are experienced in assisting our clients raise finance. Innovative entrepreneurial businesses are often looking at new ideas, new acquisitions and big strategic changes to their approach. Often new funds or new equity investors are required in order to enable this growth to happen without added strain on the rest of the business.

New funding is often required to make changes to the business and can arise through bank lending, grants, asset finance, there are many options available to you and your business.

In today’s economic climate, this has become even more challenging, and while the organisation providing the funding can provide some guidance, it can be a big advantage having an experienced trusted adviser who can help you put your case forward.

One of the options available to businesses to provide funding is through an equity structured deal. The private equity market continues to be buoyant and we know many local and national investors who may want to support the business growth and ultimately share in the outcome. It is important to note also that minority shareholdings of equity investors are becoming more common and this should always be one of the options considered by ambitious high growth businesses.

At Rowleys we are a one stop shop for anything that you may need to support your future growth and we work hard on having an extensive network of external advisers and brokers, working collaboratively in order to aid you gaining the most appropriate finance.

We will work alongside you, not just identifying options but also support you in preparing financial forecasts to test those options based on some industry specific sensitivities.

If you’d like to discuss how we can support you with fundraising, please email us at or call us on 0116 282 7000.
