We are delighted to have recently advised Flush Energy Limited on its first acquisition, as the start-up business seeks growth opportunities in the biomass sector.
Flush Energy has secured a multi-million pound funding package comprising private equity investment as well as debt finance to assist with its ambitious growth plans, following its acquisition of the business and assets of 3F Pellets Limited (in Administration), a manufacturer and supplier of wood-based pellet products including biomass heating pellets (“acquisition”).
Flush Energy is now focussed on returning the Lincolnshire-based plant to production and targeting further acquisition opportunities.
Andrew Jackson’s corporate partner, Philip Ashworth, led a multi-disciplinary team comprising Nicole Waldron (corporate), Samuel Peake (property), Nick Wilson (employment) and Fiona Phillips (tax), which advised Flush Energy on the acquisition from joint administrators, Andy Pear and Milan Vuceljic of Moorfields Advisory.
Our team also advised Flush Energy on the private equity investment and debt finance package.
Grant Lodge, CEO of Flush Energy, said: “We are delighted to have concluded the acquisition of the Lincoln pellet plant and are making swift progress with getting it back into production and yielding RHI income. We look forward to continuing to work with Philip Ashworth and his excellent team at Andrew Jackson Solicitors, who we expect to be a key part of our team, helping us with our growth plans in the coming years.”
Philip added: – “We are absolutely delighted to have assisted the team at Flush Energy on its first acquisition. It has been a complex transaction involving various regulatory issues, raising private equity and debt funding. Flush Energy is now well placed to grow the business, which offers a solid customer base from a fantastic location.
“It has been a pleasure to act for Grant and his team and we are confident that they will make significant in-roads into the biomass sector over the coming months.”
