Latest Kreston Reeves Corporate Finance deals

July 1, 2024

London: The Kreston Reeves Corporate Finance team have recently played a pivotal role in two significant financial developments for major infrastructure and cleantech companies.

The firm’s Corporate Finance team has successfully advised a global infrastructure services provider on securing a £5 million funding facility from HSBC. This facility is the first of its kind provided by HSBC in the UK. The London-based infrastructure company is known for its rapid growth and involvement in some of the largest construction projects worldwide, including data centres, utilities, and aviation projects across Europe.

The advisory team was led by Corporate Finance Director Craig Dallender, Corporate Finance Manager Sakshi Gupta, and Corporate Finance Assistant Managers Mark Cheung and Victoria Sunley. Corporate Tax Senior Manager Mohammed Mujtaba provided tax advice.

Craig Dallender commented, “We are delighted to work alongside this infrastructure services company and HSBC on this innovative funding facility. It will further contribute to the growth and development of this market-leading infrastructure developer. Kreston Reeves has a strong Corporate Finance team that can bring forward new and novel funding facilities for UK businesses.”

The infrastructure company’s Chief Financial Officer added, “As a company, we never stay still. We embrace change and thrive on new challenges, constantly looking to break into new sectors, new countries, and new opportunities. This funding facility from HSBC will help support that, and we thank Craig and the Kreston Reeves team for their support in securing this new facility.”

In another significant development, Kreston Reeves acted as Reporting Accountants for Time To ACT plc on its admission to the Aquis Stock Exchange (AQSE). Time To ACT plc, which was admitted on 29 May 2024, is the first admission of the year. The Middlesbrough-based company focuses on cleantech, renewables, and energy transition opportunities, with two main operating divisions: Diffusion Alloys and GreenSpur.

Diffusion Alloys supplies diffusion coatings that protect metal components in high-temperature and corrosive environments, such as hydrogen and nuclear energy generation. GreenSpur has developed innovative electrical generator designs for the wind industry that eliminate the need for Rare Earth magnets and copper coils without any loss in performance.

The Kreston Reeves team, led by Craig Dallender, Sakshi Gupta, and Senior Manager Jeremy Marshall, guided Time To ACT plc through the listing process.

Craig Dallender expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “We are thrilled to have worked alongside the TTA team on its admission to the Aquis Stock Exchange. It is an exciting step in its continued growth journey. Kreston Reeves has a strong reputation and track record in acting as Reporting Accountants to companies wishing to list on the Aquis exchange and shows the strengths we have to help businesses grow through listings, fundraising, and mergers and acquisitions.”

Chris Heminway, Executive Chairman at Time To ACT plc, remarked, “Listing on the AQSE Growth Market marks a significant milestone for the company, and I would like to thank the Kreston Reeves team for their assistance in making this day a reality. Time To ACT is committed to fostering innovation in this sector and developing engineering-led solutions for a cleaner, greener world. Being listed on the AQSE Growth Market will play an important role in helping us to deliver on this commitment.”

These achievements underscore Kreston Reeves’ expertise and dedication to supporting businesses through innovative funding solutions and strategic market listings.
