Osborne Clarke's Leveraged Finance team has assisted Santander with financing LDC's minority investment in Headland, a London-based agency specialising in financial and corporate reputation, public affairs and campaigning.
The leading mid-market private equity firm will support Headland’s ambitious organic growth strategy, helping the company further broaden and deepen its consultancy capabilities and fulfil its objective to advise a broader range of clients on complex communications matters.
Headland has an ambitious organic growth strategy, building on 20% revenue growth during the pandemic.
Laurie Keel said: "It was a pleasure to work alongside Neil and the Santander team on the financing package for the LDC / Headland investment. The features of this deal - high growth, UK, TMC sector – meant that we were able to demonstrate particular strengths while assisting a smooth and efficient process, which provides the platform for the Santander team to work with both LDC and Management as part of the company's next phase of exciting growth."
