Transport & Logistics

Investec Growth & Acquisition Finance (GAF) has provided an Asset Based Revolving and Cashflow debt package to support EmergeVest’s £75m buyout of CM Downton (Haulage Contractors) Limited (“Downton”), one of the UK’s leading logistics groups

Our role

Investec worked swiftly with management and EmergeVest to create a bespoke, optimised structure. This combined an asset based evergreen receivables revolver alongside a cashflow term debt structure supporting the acquisition, while also catering for working capital and planned growth.

Businesses such as Downton suit Investec’s capability to lend against both balance sheet assets and cashflows. We are actively seeking new opportunities to support similar supply chain, logistics and warehousing businesses.
