Corporate Growth and Acquisition Services

I want to...

Acquire Another Business

Acquisition can play a significant part of a growth strategy but it’s also a complex, demanding decision for a business to undertake.

With Barclays, you can have confidence knowing you’ll be working with industry and product specialists who have in-depth understanding of the acquisition process. We have experience in successfully delivering a range of acquisitions, from franchisee purchases and mid-corporate acquisitions to larger MBOs and M&A activity.

Specialised service

Whether you’re expanding in your own sector or purchasing a business in another, our specialist Relationship Directors and product specialist teams will work closely with you to formulate your acquisition strategy. We will support you in assessing the target business, exploring your funding options, and identifying optimum risk management plans.

In the UK we have regional debt finance specialists in place and cover the full spectrum of corporate activity, including international M&A. Acquiring another business is a time-critical decision and we will help you to turn around and execute your plans quickly. In addition, you can take advantage of our close working relationships with key external consultants, such as accountants and solicitors, to ensure you have access to the relevant support at this important time.

Continued support

Following your successful acquisition, your Relationship Director will continue to work closely with you to ensure the right financial services are in place to support the new business, such as the migration of accounts and the set-up of new banking facilities. Together with your external consultants, we will continue to support your financing requirements and post-acquisition business plans to help you maximise new opportunities.
