Raising Development Capital

For companies looking to raise finance for expansion, Cole Associates' objective is to raise the finance on the best terms possible for the client, namely the lowest weighted average cost of capital, including the minimum possible ownership dilution where a venture capitalist is involved.

  Cole Associates' role comprises:

Assistance in the preparation of the Business Plan and financial projections, setting out the strategy for the business, and determining the full funding requirement.
Advice on the most appropriate funding structure (i.e. the mix of debt, venture capital, finance leases, grants etc).
Introducing the funding opportunity to a selection of the appropriate funders.
Assisting the client in presenting their proposals to the funders.
Negotiating with the funders, to obtain the funds on the most advantageous terms possible.
Liaising with the preferred funders throughout the remaining stages of the investment/lending process, including due diligence and legal agreements, through to credit approval and completion.
