Creative Parking / Rockpool Investments
Cavendish Corporate Finance, the specialist sell-side M&A firm, has advised on the minority sale of Creative Parking Solutions (“Creative”) to Rockpool Investments, a London-based private equity firm.
Creative has grown to become one of the UK’s leading providers of technology-led car park solutions. The business is backed by premium technology, has grown at an exceptional rate in recent years and now represents a strong platform for growth going forward.
The Cavendish team was led by John Farrugia and Jon Edirmanasinghe.
“This deal represents a fantastic opportunity for our investors to support an established and well managed business with an excellent reputation in the facilities management sector. We are delighted with the debt financing package arranged by finnCap, which was a critical element to the completion of the transaction. We were extremely pleased with how the process was managed by the finnCap Debt Advisory Team, which provided us with optionality to select the most appropriate banking partner for CMS.”
The conclusion of the debt refinancing, with the support of finnCap Debt Advisory, is a significant and positive step for Iofina and is the culmination of many months of hard work. The favourable terms of this refinance demonstrate how far Iofina has progressed in recent years, given that the Company has significantly reduced debt, lowered debt interest rates, and secured a strong lending bank partner. With the Company’s balance sheet significantly strengthened by the 7-year term loan in place coupled with the revolving line of credit for future growth, Iofina is focused on operational developments and expanding its production and chemicals product portfolio.
I would thoroughly recommend Andrew and Rebecca and the Cavendish team to anyone looking to maximise the proceeds from a disposal or asset sale. The Cavendish team are both consummate professionals, focused on delivery and pragmatic and flexible in their approach to helping their clients achieve their objectives. I would not hesitate to recommend them and would hope to work with them on future projects. They provide great value.
I am delighted that we have secured a new loan facility an that our three existing funders continue to support the business during this challenging period, demonstrating their confidence in Morses Club and our growth and digital diversification strategy.
I was delighted with the service that Cavendish offered and their real attention to detail. The deal was not without its complexities and it was reassuring to have Paul and his team assisting me throughout the negotiations.
Cavendish handled the transaction with elegance and efficiency. They were proactive, everything kept to time and we completed as planned, less than six weeks after agreeing the heads of terms.
We have thoroughly enjoyed working with the Cavendish team. Caroline, Andrew and Eimear offered us unstinting support and valuable advice throughout the transaction. They were instrumental in helping us achieve this result.
The team at Cavendish demonstrated their international reach and their tenacity to stick with the deal until it closed. They found the ideal owner… We are very excited at the new opportunities that we can now develop.
Cavendish Corporate Finance has been integral to the establishment of the New College of the Humanities, providing both valuable advice and managing a successful fundraising process that has enabled us to have a stellar founding shareholding group that provides not just capital but also experienced investors who will help NCH succeed and flourish.
Cavendish brought to the table extensive contacts in the venture capital industry and an understanding of how to present our investment case in the best light. All our business had been lacking was funding to achieve scale and with the capital secured from Balderton we are now empowered to bring about lasting change in the insurance industry and create significant value for all our shareholders along the way. We are delighted with the deal and with the invaluable help that Cavendish provided in obtaining it.
