ATM Parts is a leading global supplier of parts for ATMS, including its patented security device that combats skimming from payment terminals. Mainet’s services include ATM installation and brand management solutions.
BGF’s £3m equity investment will enable the group to fund working capital, invest in additional staff and step up its international operations.
What RSM did
RSM was appointment by Cennox to lead the fundraising process and secured five equity offers before negotiating the deal with BGF.
'We were still in turnaround mode when we decided to raise growth capital, which presented some challenges, but RSM insight and expertise were invaluable in shaping the opportunity for investors. This, combined with their knowledge of the private equity community, meant that we only presented to the right investors and received five great offers.'
