“We are delighted with the assistance and guidance provided by the finnCap Debt Advisory team to support this hugely important acquisition. The key for us was to find a strategic lending partner in the UK; therefore, the team’s intimate knowledge of the UK debt market and network of lending partners proved essential in achieving this successful outcome.”
“Given the financial strength of iomart, lender appetite levels in participating in the debt facility were high. However, this was the first time that a bank club was established and our incumbent lender was potentially being replaced. Therefore, we needed support in ensuring we ran a diligent and professional process and this is exactly what the finnCap Debt Advisory team delivered. I was delighted with the outcome in terms of the new lenders and banking arrangements, which underpins our growth plans for the business.”
“We are delighted with the support of the finnCap Debt Advisory team in securing our maiden debt facility with a new banking partner. To date, the Group has been supported by its shareholders and its own cash generation in delivering the Board’s vision. The new debt facility represents an important evolution of our capital structure, creating more flexible funding options as we consider further strategic acquisitions, in line with our ongoing growth strategy.”
“This deal represents a fantastic opportunity for our investors to support an established and well managed business with an excellent reputation in the facilities management sector. We are delighted with the debt financing package arranged by finnCap, which was a critical element to the completion of the transaction. We were extremely pleased with how the process was managed by the finnCap Debt Advisory Team, which provided us with optionality to select the most appropriate banking partner for CMS.”
The conclusion of the debt refinancing, with the support of finnCap Debt Advisory, is a significant and positive step for Iofina and is the culmination of many months of hard work. The favourable terms of this refinance demonstrate how far Iofina has progressed in recent years, given that the Company has significantly reduced debt, lowered debt interest rates, and secured a strong lending bank partner. With the Company’s balance sheet significantly strengthened by the 7-year term loan in place coupled with the revolving line of credit for future growth, Iofina is focused on operational developments and expanding its production and chemicals product portfolio.
I am delighted that we have secured a new loan facility an that our three existing funders continue to support the business during this challenging period, demonstrating their confidence in Morses Club and our growth and digital diversification strategy.
finnCap provided us with the knowledge of market and debt structure expertise that we didn’t have in house and we very much look forward to working together on future acquisitions.
We are pleased to have secured this debt facility with Bank of Ireland, Barclays and Citi supported by finnCap. This facility not only supports our recent acquisition but further strengthens our balance sheet providing additional growth capital.
“The Cavendish Team, led by Alistair and Mike, did a fantastic job managing the process, providing valuable advice and identifying Arbuthnot as the right partner for the business. It was a pleasure working together and we are pleased to have achieved a brilliant outcome for the company.”
“finnCap did a simply outstanding job for us. They are highly skilled in this area. The debt facility provided the Company with a crucial launchpad for the IPO less than 12 months later.”
