Financing options analysis to facilitate the strategy revision

  • Horticoop is a horticulture cooperative. With a history of more than 100 years, Horticoop is widely regarded as a reliable trading partner in vegetable growing, floriculture and floristry. The cooperative has over 400 members, all of whom operate a professional horticultural business;
  • In June 2021, Avaxa was engaged by Horticoop to conduct a financing options analysis;
  • Horticoop was in the process of revising its strategy, by transitioning towards an acquisition focused investment fund. Having sufficient committed acquisition financing at its disposal was fundamental for the envisaged strategy revision;
  • Avaxa performed an extensive financing options analysis on potential sources of funding for the (aforementioned) new strategy. Main topics of the analysis included determining the required level of funding, a debt capacity analysis and determining the most optimal financing structure to facilitate the new strategy;
  • The financing options analysis facilitated internal discussions amongst the various stakeholders on the feasibility of the revised strategy, ultimately resulting in the decision to implement the new strategy;
  • In December 2021, Avaxa was engaged to assist Horticoop in raising the envisaged financing package.
