Strategic growth and access to capital in the Hunter

Event date: 29 July 2015

A fascinating discussion on opportunities for Hunter businesses to realise strategic growth and increase their access to capital, the importance of strategic planning and the role it plays in unlocking capital for businesses and their principals.

In a post-GFC environment, there's no denying that achieving business growth is harder. That said, opportunities still exist for both the strategic growth of business and gaining access to capital from new and traditional channels. In this Hunter Live session we looked at the importance of strategic planning and the role it plays in unlocking capital for businesses and their principals.

Mark Hickey (partner, Sparke Helmore) and Darren Turner (partner, PwC) were joined by our panellists:

  • Jeff Phillips, CEO of Varley Group, who brought insights on the role both long- and short-term planning has played in a volatile market
  • Matt Fensom, Managing Director of Enviropacific Services, who shared his experiences in the move to accepting private equity investment into your business
  • John Murphy, Managing Director of Adexum Capital, who discussed the key drivers for private equity firms to invest in a mid-market company in the current economic environment
  • David Denny, Partner – Corporate Finance of PwC, who shared his experience around debt and equity raisings and what he is currently seeing in the market.
