29th September 2020, 3:57 pm
The debt advisory team at Zeus Capital has advised on £1bn of debt facilities, completing 21 transactions in the two years since its inception.
Since starting in September 2018, the three-strong Zeus Capital Debt Advisory team has provided debt advisory services across a broad range of transaction types, including acquisition financings, re-financings, covenant amendments, balance sheet restructurings and lender education processes.
The team has been particularly active during the lockdown period caused by COVID-19, completing five transactions since March, primarily assisting companies to raise liquidity lines as well as assisting in restructuring their banking facilities.
In total, more than 95 per cent of the firm’s debt advisory transactions had private equity involvement, working with some of the UK’s most high-profile houses. Clients include Mayfair Equity Partners, Vitruvian Partners, Graphite Capital Partners, Phoenix Equity Partners and ECI.
With offices in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh, Zeus Capital provides a full range of advisory services, covering M&A, private equity, debt advisory, restructuring, private placements and private client services. These services are underpinned by research analysts with expertise across a wide array of industry sectors and markets.
Jonathan Broome, head of debt advisory at Zeus Capital, said: “When we started the debt advisory team in 2018, we knew there was a real opportunity to add value to Zeus Capital’s client base, and strengthen its high-quality service offering. It has been a real pleasure to be able to support more than 20 ambitious management teams over the last two years, working on some significant transactions.
“We have a strong pipeline of activity for the remainder of 2020 and beyond, and our focus will continue to be on maintaining our track record of completing a deal a month going forward.”
