Rygor Group Ltd. (Rygor) a multi-franchise commercial vehicle Dealer group (which includes Mercedes-Benz Trucks and Vans) has been acquired in a management buyout, with backing from Shawbrook, via an eight-figure funding package.
With sites located from the South-West of England, throughout the M5 and M4 corridors and up to the North-West, Rygor is the UK’s largest Mercedes Benz commercial franchise partner and has been operating since 1961. The MBO team required a comprehensive funding solution to support its strategy to purchase the business from the outgoing shareholders.
Shawbrook was selected based on the team’s understanding of the market and its ability to provide a flexible, tailored solution for the client. This included a structured, hybrid facility to enable the transaction and support the ongoing working capital requirements.
The funding provides the Group with the required day-one finance to complete the MBO, including refinancing existing debts, and on-going working capital funding for the business. The solution encompasses cash flow finance, and asset-based funding against property and receivable security.
