At New World we offer professional advice on:

Our focus is very clearly on project managing each transaction effectively and driving it to a completion within a realistic timescale.

Company Sales

We have an excellent track record in the sale of private companies for owners, managers and financial institutions.

Our objective is to optimise the combination of price, deal structure and form of consideration within an agreed timescale, whilst minimising the disruption caused by the process to the business.

We strongly recommend owners who are contemplating a sale of their business within the next two years to talk to us now.

The planning and timing of an exit and the preparation of a business for sale can optimise the disposal process and maximise shareholder value.

Together with the client we will identify and agree a short-list of credible trade buyers and private equity investors most likely to be interested and able to acquire the business.

By creating the optimum level of competitive tension, leading the negotiations and proactively managing the sale process through to completion, we aim to deliver the best possible deal for our client in the most tax efficient manner.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Working closely with our clients and leveraging our sector contacts, we are able to generate a consistent flow of attractive merger and acquisition opportunities.

Once we have produced and agreed a short-list of relevant targets with our client we initiate contact and a confidential dialogue with them.

We prepare a valuation of the target objectively and professionally, taking into account the financial and commercial benefits to be gained and recommend the most suitable structure and funding for the transaction.

Together with the client we then endeavour to negotiate the most advantageous possible purchase price and if agreed with the target, obtain a period of exclusivity within which to confirm our valuation and understanding of the target.

We will subsequently, proactively project manage the transaction to legal completion and as appropriate liaise with our client’s other professional advisers.

Management Buy-Outs and Buy-Ins

Management buy-outs (MBOs) and buy-ins (MBIs) present an elevated level of complexity and are both time-consuming and potentially risky for management teams.

We mitigate these factors by ensuring management are introduced to the most suitable financial sponsors and assist in the negotiation of the most advantageous equity deal for the management team.

We have an excellent network of contacts within the private equity community and with the leading providers of debt finance.

We will assist management in the preparation and presentation of their business plan and aim to minimise the disruption caused to the business during the course of the process.

Equity Release Transactions

Where the sale of the entire company is not appropriate or relevant shareholders may wish to release some liquidity from the capital value they have created in the company they own.

In the recapitalisation of a company the existing capital and funding structure is re-shaped still, however, leaving some or all of the existing owners of the company as shareholders.

The most common form of company recapitalisation is achieved via a partial equity release which allows certain shareholders, both management or institutional investors, to de-risk or exit their investment entirely and to be replaced by other investors.

This type of solution is most relevant where:

  • Institutional investors wish to de-risk their overall investment or exit entirely.
  • Certain members of the management team wish to exit or retire.
  • The ongoing management team wish to increase their equity in the company.

Development Capital Fundraising

Current limitations in the banking market means that businesses with real development potential are often limited in their ability to grow due to a lack of funding.

We specialised in accessing long term funding capital to facilitate growth and focus on raising between £1 million and £3 million with an emphasis on both long term and flexible structures.

We have an excellent network of contacts within the private equity community and with the leading providers of debt finance.

We will assist management in the preparation and presentation of their business plan and again aim to minimise the disruption caused to the business during the course of the process.
