“MHA Henderson Loggie were recommended by LINC, the business angel network, as a key to unlocking finance and they certainly proved their worth in that regard. MHA Henderson Loggie’s corporate finance team, led by Greig Rowand, quickly showed their high calibre of advice and the commitment that continued throughout the financing of this particularly challenging marine renewable project! HL provided thoroughly professional guidance for readying our company to present to investors by assisting in the production of an appropriate business plan, financial forecasts and an investor teaser document. They managed the corporate venturing process with equal diligence and presented us to several organisations who showed interest in the business plan, 2 of which eventually invested in our company. We were supported every step of the way with a personal touch that I feel has bound our businesses together for the future and will allow our company to grow rapidly, in so doing, achieving commercial success”.
