Capital Raising

‘Capital isn't scarce; vision is’ – Sam Walton

Lloyd Meridian Legal understands that raising sufficient capital is essential for some businesses to be effectively leveraged or for a business to gain market traction in order to grow and expand.  When clients seek to raise capital they need a team that will navigate through the process smoothly and deliver on its objectives.  We have experience leading and being a key component of that team.

Private and public investment

Lloyd Meridian Legal acts on issues of new equity or the sale of existing equity by corporate issuers, through avenues such as Initial Public Offerings (IPOs), private placements and rights issues.  Our lawyers work closely with clients and their advisory teams (including corporate advisors, stockbrokers, commercial and investment banks, equipment lessors and other lending institutions) to develop innovative structures to contribute to a successful capital raising. 

Lloyd Meridian Legal has a good understanding of the markets and compliance obligations enforced by the two primary regulators, the Australian Stock Exchange and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.  We also have access to business introduction and matching services to raise equity pursuant to ASIC Class Order 02/273 thereby maximising the benefits under the exceptions to the fundraising provisions requiring a prospectus.

Government grants and assistance

We also consider other fundraising options for our clients where appropriate, including assisting them in obtaining government support through various grants and other schemes on offer.
