Goodman Corporate Finance are delighted to be part of the winning team that took home the ‘SME Deal of the Year’ award at the Insider Dealmakers Awards.
The recognition was given for a £13m two-stage refinancing and acquisition by Hills Numberplates of Faab Fabricauto.
Hills Group is the world’s third largest number plate manufacturer and has more than 80 years’ experience providing products to national and international clients including Honda, Fiat, Ford and Toyota. The group currently employs more than 200 staff and produces more than 19 million plates each year.
Anthony Melvin, leading the Goodman ABL team, brokered the deal with RBS Invoice Finance after another company had been unable to arrange the necessary funds with a different high street bank.
Paul Goodman, Managing Director of Goodman Corporate Finance, said: “We have access to a number of potential funders but immediately saw that this would be an excellent deal to put to RBS Invoice Finance. We’ve worked together in the past and knew they would be a good fit for the Hills Group.”
Colin Muir, Head of Client Relations, RBS Invoice Finance, added: “Goodman approached us as they knew that one of our aims is to support thriving businesses looking to grow, particularly supporting the manufacturing sector
This level of understanding and partnership between broker and funder is fundamental to the success of bringing projects such as these to fruition, and we’re delighted to have worked with Goodman to support the Hills Group.Colin Muir, Head of Client Relations at RBS Invoice Finance
