Topic Round Table

How to fund an acquisition, with Matt Katz, Buzzacott

A key part of any acquisition strategy is how to fund it. This breakfast will tour you through the finance options for buying multiple businesses and how to use them.

There has been a proliferation of lending options since banks retreated from the SME market after the financial crisis. And there is now a very broad spectrum of equity finance available for acquisitions, each with different terms, approaches and ways of adding value. But which are best suited to your growth strategy, and how should they be used to fund strategic acquisitions?

This roundtable will together founders and CEOs to share their challenges and opportunities related to acquisitions to swap tips and advice. We will be joined by Matt Katz, who heads up the Corporate Finance team at Buzzacott and has a wealth of experience advising owner-managed businesses on acquisitions, disposals, management buyouts and fundraising from banks, private equity firms and high-net-worth individuals. Matt is also responsible for developing the existing Buzzacott valuations business.

Matt will share insight on all aspects of acquisitions, from strategy to funding to exit, based on his work with members of The Supper Club and other high growth entrepreneurs.

The breakfast will seek to explore but will not be limited to:

  • The evolution of the funding landscape over the past decade
  • How and why to use different debt and equity funding options
  • Building an acquisition strategy that is attractive to investors
  • How best to use corporate finance advisers
