Special situations team advises client on acquiring assets out of Administration

Advising a private equity portfolio business


by Ian Barton May 27th 2020

Our Special Situations team combines the diverse skills of both corporate finance and financial advisory, providing bespoke and integrated M&A support across stressed, distressed as well as insolvent transactions. Our goal is to assist in improving performance and maximising value to stakeholders. 

The team – including Simon Bonney partner in our Restructuring and Insolvency team and Ian Barton, partner in our Corporate Finance team - have recently advised a private equity portfolio business on the acquisition of certain assets out of the administration of a larger IT services business. We were introduced to the client from a longstanding relationship with a private equity firm who were aware of our blend of both corporate finance and restructuring capabilities.
 
Ian Barton led the deal with the client, with Simon Bonney providing insight in to buying from an administrator to ensure that our clients offer was structured to protect them in relation to TUPE risk and other liabilities, as well as being appealing to the administrator.
  
Our Special Situations teams are currently jointly engaged in talking to many of our contacts around promoting this type of advisory work. If you would like to talk to our team about how we can help your clients when buying out of distress, please get in touch with any member of the team listed on this page.
