As the Autumn season is upon us, we want to give our colleagues a platform and some well-deserved focus. In the coming weeks we’ll offer some highlighted cases directly from B&Y Associates; please do reach out directly – building business relationships is a key element of what we do.
We were delighted to welcome Zack earlier in the Summer. Zack brings experience from working with a similar organisation to ours and amongst loads of other skills he brings the value of youth!
“Joining the B&Y family has delivered on every expectation I had. Working alongside Nick and his colleagues has provided me with the opportunity to support a wider variety of businesses. Having built my career around early-stage start-ups, I see the important role B&Y plays in supporting businesses during current market changes. More and more investors are looking to diversify and back more established businesses. This supports the existing economy and employment that have been affected by world crises such as the COVID pandemic and the war in Ukraine. During my short time with the team, two out of three assignments have reach investment offer stage and we hope will cross the line soon. It’s fascinating to work at different ends of the investment spectrum – growth and restructuring.
Both clients are food businesses – I like the sector but should be clear that I am more a generalist when it comes to investment solutions. I’m always around for a chat and look forward to hearing from you.”
Zack Louw, Associate.
Specialist Vegan Pet Care and Food
Our client is facing a critical moment in the expansion of current product lines and new customer acquisition. Investment will allow for greater marketing efforts as well as streamline operations to support growth. Our client is currently discussing offers including sweat equity for a key executive hire to support financial modelling and the overall investment campaign.
Leader in South & Southeast Asian Food Manufacturing
The pandemic saw many legacy businesses struggle and collapse as they tried to weather the economic storm. Our client was fortunate to have been able to weather the storm and now seeks to regain its place as the leader in its sector. We have successfully sourced the right private investors that will help shape the way forward with new retail partners and internal restructuring.
