A Premier League club embarked in a considerable investment plan aimed at retaining its Premier League status and achieving a long-term value creation program. We advised on how best to finance the Club in the short and long term and arranged funding for two rounds of investments from sophisticated investment funds, optimising the structure and the cost of finance. BGB Weston has developed a strong expertise in understanding the needs of clients active in this sector and are well placed to advise on a range of financing solutions, including asset finance through recourse or non-recourse factoring solutions for transfer funding of players, revolving or fixed-term facilities as well as equity raising.
One of the top clubs in the Portuguese’s “Primeira Liga” sought our support on their plans for debt-consolidation, collateralised loan, and liquidity improvement. In little more than 3 months we assessed their situation, strategized possibilities, and arranged funding for 100 million euros on a five-year direct lending facility secured by the TV Rights in a separate MediaCo.
