Corporate Finance

What is Inspired Corporate Finance?

We provide Corporate Finance and Transaction Advisory Services to a wide range of clients, from smaller owner managed businesses to private equity houses to larger Corporates.

As the deal-making environment becomes ever-more complex, you need an advisor you can trust who has an in-depth understanding of delivering successful deals. We work with our clients to create, realise, and protect value when advising on mergers, acquisitions, and disposals through all stages of the deal cycle.

There has never been a better time to sell your business.  After a historic year for mergers and acquisitions (M&A), the UK and Irish M&A appetite for 2022 remains strong as companies reshape post-pandemic fuelled by the easy availability of cheap financing and strong private equity interest.

Mergers & Acquisitions

  • Selling a business or raising finance, including books of business and disposal of non-core businesses: All disposals, whether partial or full, require careful and experienced handling to ensure maximum value for the company shareholders. The key to achieving this is our ability to identify the most relevant potential acquirers and maximise competitive tension between different potential purchasers.
  • Buying a business: An acquisition is a major strategic step.  At Inspired, we tailor every transaction to the needs of each client, putting significant time into defining acquisition strategy, sourcing suitable targets, valuing target companies, and structuring transactions.

Management Buy Outs/ Buy Ins

  • Management Buy Outs / Buy Ins: We advise on transaction-led debt funding requirements.  We have strong relationships with the major UK and Irish Banks.  Our independent status allows us to negotiate with the banking institutions and specialist lenders to secure the best terms and structure for our clients without any conflicts of interest.

Private Equity Advisory/ Debt & Capital Advisory

  • Supporting businesses in attracting private equity investment: for firms looking for private capital, Inspired Corporate Finance is perfectly positioned to identify various sources, from traditional lenders and venture capitalists to strategic investors or other providers. We have strong relationships with all the key Private Equity funds within the UK and Ireland.

Financial Due Diligence

Buy Side Financial Due Diligence:

Using the latest data analytics technologies combined with years of experience across every sector, we can help you progress your deal confidently. We can provide comfort and peace of mind to corporate and financial buyers by analysing and validating financial, commercial, and operational assumptions through detailed due diligence.

Vender Due Diligence:

When a business is up for sale, the completion of financial due diligence to understand the financial health of the business is essential.  Inspired provides both comfort to the buyers and sellers with an independent view of the business.

Vender due diligence is a detailed and comprehensive report on the financial health of the company that is being sold.  This report aims to address the major risks and issues that may be relevant to any potential purchaser.  It allows the vendor greater control over the sales process and timing off the sale.  We work alongside company management throughout the process which in turn reduces the opportunity for price chipping, helping to secure a higher price for the business.

Strategic Advisory/ Financial Modelling

  • Business and asset valuations: Our valuation professionals perform high-quality valuations of companies and individual assets that recognise the need for transparent and robust valuations which satisfy corporate, regulatory, and accounting requirements. Our experienced professionals bring excellence in accounting, taxation, and financial due diligence, providing integrated solutions that help clients make better quality decisions around value.

Transaction Tax

Inspired Tax Incentives can help you navigate through the various tax issues that arise across the full deal life cycle to ensure they are incorporated into your valuation considerations.

Buy Side Tax Due Diligence:

At Inspired, we can help you identify and manage both historical and future tax exposures.  Additionally, we can provide support developing an optimal acquisition structure which is aligned to the commercial objectives of the transaction.

Sell Side Tax Due Diligence:

Inspired Tax Incentives specialise in assessing the exit readiness of a business and provide detailed pre transaction structuring advice to facilitate an exit whilst protecting value for the shareholders.  This service helps you to identify and resolve any tax issues early in the process to limit any potential price chipping from purchasers.  We also help to articulate any potential tax risks and tax assets to potential purchasers.
