The funding needs for middle market companies are unique. Proactively working with you to map your capital and financing needs, Assay’s funding specialists will help you achieve the appropriate funds and financial partner for your business. In addition, we help you manage risk through our unique PRIME℠ process (Prioritise, Resource, Implement, Measure & Evaluate) to achieve the transformation required to realise your road map.
We find those that leave funding too late get the worst terms and often dislike their funding relationship.
As specialists, we advise on:
- financing and fundraising for growth
- acquisition funding
- recapitalisations and liquidity
- corporate and financial strategy
We work through our corporate financing and investment banking teams:
- Assay Corporate Finance for Australia, Europe and UK
- Assay Capital Services for Canada and USA
As businesses grow they reach a point in their lifecycle when the operating cash flow is insufficient to fund growth. For example entering new markets, expanding facilities, purchasing new equipment or pursuing sales and marketing opportunities. Our funding specialists work with you to evaluate the growth capital options, such as senior debt mezzanine financing or equity capital.
This funding helps create a more scalable business through acquisition of competitors, access to complementary products or services and expanding into new markets (domestic or international). In addition to managing the acquisition process, Assay can also provide the right funding to acquire, as well as support, the integration and growth created.
For many entrepreneurs their most valuable asset is their business. The income generated by your company could provide for your family, yet much of your wealth is locked inside the business. Unlocking it is the key to diversifying your wealth through a partial sale of equity, or a special dividend paid for by future company earnings. Recapitalisation allows shareholders to retire, or can provide liquidity for family members not involved in the business. Assay will design and implement the right liquidity strategy for each shareholder to help you achieve your business and personal goals.
