Corporate Finance is all about the long-term strategy of a business and looking at ways it may get there. It may be an early stage business looking for some funding for development or an established business looking to acquire a competitor to become dominant in their market or simply a business whose owner wishes to retire.
Whatever your need, our Corporate Finance team has extensive experience of working with management teams, owner managers and large corporates to achieve their desired outcome with the minimum of disruption to the business.
We support clients on a wide range of transactions, large and small, across many sectors.
At the heart of everything we do are our clients’ needs and ensuring that we deliver the highest level of service. We are seen by many clients as their trusted advisor, a sounding board off which to bounce strategic ideas. We believe this (and our creative and pragmatic approach) is the key to a successful transaction.
Whether you would like to sell, acquire, lead a management buy-out or refinance, Brown Butler are here to offer quality advice at every stage to help you achieve your goals.
We offer advice in the following areas:

- Vendor Initiated Buy Out (VIMBO)
Whatever route you choose, Brown Butler has the expertise and experience to successfully guide you through the whole process. From negotiating a deal and raising finance to helping guide you through the due diligence process and through to completion.
Mergers and Acquisitions
We have extensive experience of developing a full acquisition strategy with our clients to fit with their strategic growth plans. From initial research and “mapping” of the particular market and making approaches to potential targets, to making and negotiating an offer and managing the process to completion.
Brown Butler specialises in working with owner managed businesses of all sizes. This will inevitably involve some form of partial or total exit from a business at some point. We have a vast amount of experience in helping business owners achieve their desired outcome. We run a very bespoke process, tailored to fit each business and its market.
Financial Due Diligence
Brown Butler undertakes financial due diligence for a variety of reasons. It may be that an institution has instructed us as an independent third party to test the financial integrity of the information they have received. Or perhaps a client who is looking at a strategic acquisition would like us to “kick the can” of the target to ensure its financial stability and strategic fit.
Development Capital and Refinancing
Your business may be in early stage growth/development and require investment to aid this process. Or it may be a well-established business looking to better manage its working capital or anything in-between. Brown Butler has the expertise and market knowledge to help you source and capitalize on finance opportunities.
