Done Deal: Chapel Down Group plc
Winery and Vineyards
Financing Event: Growth
PNC Deal Leader: Stuart Baty
We met PNC through our industry trade association, as they have been building quite a reputation for leading the way in our world. PNC’s enthusiasm for the business is completely genuine. They were totally committed to getting the deal done and had an instinctive understanding for our business. Despite Covid, we were determined to simultaneously announce our annual results, our crowdfunding initiative and the PNC facility. PNC supported us all the way and worked tremendously hard to get their thorough and extensive groundwork completed to deliver a great deal with perfect timing. These are exciting times for Chapel Down. With more vineyards and a new winery in planning, our production capabilities are in synch with our tremendous sales growth. PNC’s facility delivers the flexibility and the long-term commitment we need to underpin our brand in continuing to go from strength to strength.
