Allied Glass

Two £12m Fundraisings (2007 and 2008) | £75m Secondary Management Buy-Out

Allied Glass

Allied Glass, based in Leeds and Knottingley, is a leading manufacturer and supplier of high value glass containers to spirits and food manufacturers, specialising in the production of complex bottles. The company supplies some of the world's leading beverage companies including Diageo, Whyte & Mackay, De Vere and William Grant & Sons, and for brands such as Grant's Scotch Whisky, Johnnie Walker Whisky, MacCallan Malt Whisky and Napolina Oil.

The PPCF team first advised the company on raising £12m of funding to recommission a moth-balled furnace. The re-introduction of this furnace increased capacity and provided a platform for future growth.  The following year PPCF advised on a further debt raising to refinance institutional loan notes.

PPCF then acted as lead advisor on the secondary MBO, structuring the deal and raising both debt (Lloyds Banking Group and HSBC) and equity (Equistone) for Newco.
