Business Investment opportunities
Here at BFS we regularly receive requests from SMEs for help in raising finance for expansion of the business or to fund the development of new products or entry into new business areas. In some cases a business loan may not be appropriate, particularly where this puts a strain on cash flow. In such cases, because of our many contacts, we at BFS can look at taking clients down the Equity Investment route. This may be through our own Business Angel contacts or via one of the Crowd Funding platforms that we work closely with and who specialise in Equity Funding.
The following is a list of some of our client companies who require finance in the form of loans, investment or some form of debt finance to provide them with working capital and the means to grow the business. Please click on the appropriate section to display a web brief on any particular client. If you require further information or a copy of a particular business plan please call BFS on 0800 093 5240.
Finance for growth of an entertainments business - BFS Ref.: SP/524 NEW
Our clients have developed an exciting new family ‘go to’ entertainment venue. Since opening in April 2016 the business has become one of the most popular entertainment venues in Leicester with many 5 star ratings across Trip Advisor, Google and Facebook. The problem that they are faced with is that the current venue is too small to meet demand. They are therefore seeking £250k of additional funding, by way of equity and/or structured loan facilities in order to expand their current offering through locating to exciting new premises in the heart of Leicester.

An IFA Firm looking to expand by acquisition - BFS Ref.: WT/495 NEW
This investment opportunity relates to an IFA Firm that is looking to expend by acquisition. The owner has already researched potential targets and has identified a small practice in the Midlands that would be available to acquire at an attractive price early in 2019. He is now seeking new equity or loan monies to enable them to look at this acquisition opportunity. A total of £675,000 is required. The proposal is that this would be split between £275,000 as an equity investment and the balance as a 3-year loan on agreed terms, although proportions are negotiable. The business already has significant repeat income and the new acquisition would strengthen this situation.
Our client is particularly keen to find an investor prepared to participate in running the business with a view to taking over entirely when our client retires on 3-5 years time. For more details of the plans for this business - Click Here
