We are experts in M&A, Management Advisory and Debt Advisory across all sectors and deal sizes.

Many of our transactions involve private equity in one form or another. We advise on all aspects of PE deals and all parties, including management teams, PE investors and vendors to PE. We also work regularly with trade buyers and other sources of capital.

Whether you’re a vendor or buyer, the transaction is one of the key moments in the life of any business. We know that years of work can come to fruition – or be lost – in a matter of weeks.

How you approach the market is vital. Early involvement, whether preparing a company for sale or identifying and appraising a target will get the process off to a good start.

At Wyvern Partners, our experienced advisors have been through this many times. More than just experienced negotiators, they can help you plan and anticipate – keeping process on track, anticipating and avoiding problems.

We base our fees on success and have a proven track record of delivery.

To find out how we could help you, contact Anthony Gahan or Jonathan Smith.

Debt markets are specialist and rapidly changing. Our intimate knowledge of this area – and the players within it – means we can quickly identify funding options for you, target suitable providers and help negotiate terms.

Whether you need financing for an acquisition, to fund growth or to refinance existing arrangements, Wyvern Partners Debt Advisory service can help.

You may want stapled financing to help facilitate the sale of your business: We know that ensuring bidders have ready access to tailored financing can secure higher valuations, speed the sale process and minimise disruption to the business.

Our service:

Successful fund raising means much more than maximising debt quantum or minimising margins or fees. Our team are experts in helping you:

  • source the right debt product from the right provider (whether a bank or non-bank fund/institution) and
  • optimise financial-covenant headroom and operational flexibility to ensure the needs of lenders are properly balanced with those of management and shareholders.

Involving us early means we can help you secure funding in a timely and cost effective way.
