About the Group

When the Group’s financial position started to deteriorate, Duff & Phelps was engaged to undertake a financial review of the business. Duff & Phelps worked with the Group’s management team to secure a restructure of the Group’s bank debt on favorable terms and restructured its indebtedness with its principle supplier, which had accumulated significant legacy arrears. As a result, the Group secured an investment of c£1m to normalise its trade creditor position and fund the initial stages of its ambitious growth plans.
