Ambition Delivered | finnCap October Update 2021

Oct 04, 2021 / News


Delivering for clients across borders

Sizeable equity raisings, debt financing deals, and M&A activity in both public and private markets has driven how we’ve delivered our clients’ ambitions.

Notable deals such as the sale of Pimlico Plumbers, or the sale of Nuapay to an Australian-listed payments technology company for €108 million, were characterised by our team’s broad international reach.

Over the first half of this financial year we also advised Poolbeg Pharma with its IPO; advised Access Intelligence on its acquisition of an Australian firm, raising £50m to fund the deal; advised ANGLE on its £20m Placing; and our Debt Advisory team worked buy-side on behalf of Cortland to finance its acquisition of Qdime, while the finnCap Cavendish team advised Qdime on its sale.

Since our 2021 year end update we've strived to go further on delivering our clients' ambitions and have directly benefitted from our strategy: of product diversification beyond ECM as well as leveraging deep sector expertise especially in the Technology, Life Sciences and Consumer sectors.

But this only tells half the story. The M&A market has been very active and finnCap teams in Private M&A and PLC Strategic Advisory have worked on both the buy-side and sell-side to deliver exceptional outcomes, globally.

Just recently, for example, you couldn't open a national news page without hearing about the landmark sale of Pimlico Plumbers to US buyer Neighborly, backed by international private equity house KKR. Our teams also secured a major US buyer for Qdime, advised Redcentric Plc on its acquisition of US-based Piksel Industry Solutions, and advised Access Intelligence on its acquisition of Australia-based Isentia, raising £50m for our client to fund the deal.

Our international access goes further still. finnCap Cavendish is a member of Oaklins, the world’s most experienced mid-market M&A advisor. Oaklins has over 900 professionals and dedicated industry teams with deep sector expertise in more than 45 countries, and has closed 1,700 transactions in the past five years. It's a fantastic asset to our private and public clients alike.
