Corporate Finance

Starting, rescuing or growing a business requires capital.

Whatever your goals, whether your business is new or well-established, finding that finance can be a challenge. In fact, one of the most common reasons businesses fail is badly-structured or inadequate financing.

If your business needs finance, Deans can help you connect with lenders and funding providers and get the financial support you need. Our contacts can open new doors and help conversations run more smoothly.

We’ll begin with a feasibility study of your project, asking the questions any lender would ask so you can make sure your business case holds up. Next, we’ll suggest which sources and types of finance could work best for you. Bank loans are not the only option – you might consider using an overdraft, personal capital, mortgages, venture capital, or equity capital, to name but a few.

When conversations with lenders or investors begin, we’ll make sure you’re armed with a watertight business plan, detailed forecasts and prospectuses that will make it easy for them to say, “Yes.” If you need it, we’ll even present those proposals with you, fielding questions and helping you make the best possible case.

If you decide to raise finance by disposing of assets, or by merging with another firm, we can provide specialist advice on that process, too.

Our corporate financing service includes…

  • Feasibility studies
  • Review of finance sources
  • Preparation of business plans, forecasts and prospectuses
  • Support in meetings with lenders and investors
  • Advice on disposals, mergers and acquisitions
