Our role

Direct Lending has provided a bilateral funding package to facilitate Blixt’s acquisition of Duncan & Toplis, an East Midlands based accountancy business.

Duncan & Toplis represents Direct Lending’s second transaction this year in the professional services sector alongside Blixt. The financing package includes significant additional capital to support future acquisitions in the highly fragmented accountancy sector.

Through designing a bespoke funding structure complete with future capacity, the business is equipped to grow and capitalise on the market opportunity and we look forward to supporting their journey.
