PPCF advised the Company on structuring, funding and delivering the MBO. The deal provided the founding shareholders with an opportunity to realise their investment and the incumbent executive management team to significantly increase their equity participation. The MBO was funded by Palatine Private Equity and HSBC and was structured to provide additional funds to allow Lucion to accelerate its buy and build growth strategy.
