A Subsea UK event in Aberdeen next week is aimed at helping companies finance their growth ambitions.
The one-day Financing for Growth conference at the Sandman Signature Aberdeen Hotel, next Thursday, will feature experts from leading banks, private equity firms, corporate finance advisers, law firms and economic agencies.
These include Pinsent Masons, Simmons Energy, RSM, UK Export Finance, Santander, Scottish Enterprise, EV Private Equity and BGF.
The event, which is open to all small and medium-sized enterprises, will include presentations on: preparing for success with an investor or buyer, leading with finance, finance solutions to fuel growth ambitions, and finance options and how to access them.
Subsea UK chief executive Neil Gordon said: “One of Subsea UK’s key aims is to help our member companies grow, whether that is in the UK or internationally.
“Recently, we have had feedback that companies are struggling to access the funds and the support they need to support their long-term growth ambitions.
“This event is our direct response to this challenge and we have put together a programme of speakers who, with their breadth of knowledge and experience, will be able to provide expert advice and guidance on a range of financing solutions and support.”
Alan Dick, senior vice-president, industry and technology, Simmons Energy, said: “We are starting to see significant opportunities for investment and M&A (mergers and acquisitions) activity.”
