Speak to us for an independent insight into what is on offer and what would work from a banking perspective before
you even meet with the banks. An efficient way to ensure you get a fair deal.
Whether you need bank funding for growth, support when times are more challenging or just the peace of mind that the deal fits, we can advise you on:
Raising new debt
Advice on the most appropriate structure to meet your business needs, bank appetite and the information you will require to proceed.
Renewing existing debt facilities
Advice as to whether your current arrangements wholly meet your needs and other options you may have. Reviewing pricing, terms and conditions (including financial covenants and security).
Monitoring debt facilities
Guidance to help you effectively monitor your facilities to ensure continued bank support.
Advice on efficiencies and cost savings in areas such as Service Charges, Payments and International support.
As a result of our advice should you require us to manage any of the above on your behalf to ensure you secure the best deal then let us know. We are experienced in identifying specific funding options, producing business plans, forecasts and sensitivities, negotiating competitive terms, covenant criteria and security requirements.
What our clients have to say....
“Thank you Delphine for all your efforts and long late hours spent working with us to successfully achieve funding for the purchase of our target asset. Your knowledge of the commercial financing market was instrumental in achieving the most appropriate funding partner. Your diligence, knowledge and relationships with active lending institutions aided in securing competitive long term financing.
We feel your dedication and active process management made the difference in pushing the lender along to fast track the underwriting process; your anticipation and responsive attention in foreseeing the details required by the lenders greatly shortened the process. We are happy to recommend you to anyone seeking commercial financing; they will greatly benefit from your experience and guidance.
We will be sure to contact you regarding future purchases and re-financings.”
Owen Kelly and Gerry Murphy, Directors, Bruhenny Grange Hotel Ltd
“We were given clear and precise commercial advice and introductions to finance organisations that have been invaluable.
Simmons Gainsford were accessible and responsive for advice and put forward
innovative approaches so we achieved the best deal.“
Amanda Fisher, Managing Director, NCC Skills Ltd
“Getting funding is one thing. Getting the right funding needs the right professionals on your team. Delphine’s knowledge of how the banking industry works achieved both of our two, perhaps seemingly diverse, objectives. Funding the buy-out of a senior shareholder and providing cash flow for a period of strong business growth.
Looking back, I realise we could not have done it without her.
She will be an integral part of our team to achieve our future business expansion plans.”
Managing Director, IFSE Group
"Delphine built a financial model that brought together our historic and forecast data to support an MBO. She understood the requirements and issues immediately and met a tight deadline to ensure the deal team received a professional model that was credible, flexible and easily audited. Her work made a significant contribution to the due diligence process to give the MBO funders confidence in the transaction.
Delphine was a pleasure to work with and her expertise in building a financial model that reflected the specifics of our business and its cash flows was an invaluable part of the successful MBO. As a result, I would be more than happy to recommend her"
Rob Clarke, CEO Mode Print Solutions Ltd
