Fundraising & capital markets

We regularly advise businesses that are seeking capital investment and funding. This may mean raising debt finance or raising equity finance from third party investors. We are well versed in and have experience in all aspects of fund raising.

Whatever the rationale is for the fundraising, whether it is to fund a particular opportunistic acquisition or to help with the business’s working capital requirements, at Spearing Waite we understand the overriding commercial need to drive finance and fundraising transactions forward, usually within tight timescales.

Our lawyers have advised a number of corporates and a range of sponsors, nominated advisors and brokers, with particular emphasis on assisting companies applying for admission to AIM. We work in a collaborative fashion with financial advisors, nominated advisors, sponsors and other professional advisors to achieve our clients’ objectives.

In particular we can help with the following:

  • IPOs
  • Secondary fundraisings, including rights issues, open offers and placings
  • Share capital reorganisations
  • Market rules and regulatory issues
  • Preparing relevant documentation, including Information Memoranda, shareholder circulars and prospectuses
  • Due diligence
  • Verification
  • Investment planning and structuring
  • Restructuring and refinancing
  • Preparing for AGMs and other general meetings
