The Deal: Sector Experts

The management buy-out backed by Rutland Partners LLP consolidates PNC’s 10 years of experience & funding in the sector.


The Achievement: Perfect Timing

The facility, which incorporates PNC’s Junior Secured Fund, Steel City Capital Funding, supported the buy-out and provides liquidity to fuel the working capital and growth of the company. This comes at a perfect time, with the business set to capitalise on its recent, significant investment in new equipment. 

This is our fifth transaction with PNC and the second active one involving Steel City. As ever, they have provided a great product and delivered their trademark responsiveness and proactivity throughout the deal process.
