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% 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.”
