CORPORATE FINANCE SERVICES
LGB provides mid-market M&A advisory, debt finance and equity capital raising services. We focus on companies and transactions with valuations of more than £50 million and provide the following services:
While we arrange one-off debt facilities for companies, our debt financing business is focused on the arranging of ongoing credit facilities in the form of secured loan note programmes. These feature common documentation enabling repeat issuance of loan notes to finance growing companies and simplify the capital structure.
Clients that have established loan note programmes include manufacturing and service companies with specific capital investment requirements and leasing and other financial companies that use second loan note programmes to fund books of financial assets.
LGB has access to diverse sources of equity capital including venture capital, private equity, family offices and trusts, and HNW individuals. A significant portion of equity capital raised is placed in-house.
Our equity capital raising business is focused on the provision of development capital for quoted companies and well-established private companies in the UK and USA.
"We’ve worked with LGB for over two years now and we’ve found LGB to be a talented and thoughtful corporate finance partner. We’ve raised both EIS-compliant equity funding and, latterly as we have grown, structured loan-note funding. The LGB team has provided us, as a corporate client, with consistent, supportive counsel and access to an engaged and active investor group."
Mikael Shields, CEO, Acamar Films and Producer of ‘Bing’ for the BBC
"We are delighted with the flexibility offered by the £10 million secured loan note programme. The programme has allowed Sema Lease reduce its reliance on banks and institutional funders and diversify into a new source of stable financing."

"This transaction was particularly complicated and throughout LGB was positive and supportive. I would use them again without hesitation."
