Independent Corporate Finance Firm


Spayne Lindsay & Co. is an independent corporate finance firm providing high quality, bespoke advisory services to corporate clients, financial investors and entrepreneurs. Our advice includes buy-side and sell-side mergers, acquisitions and disposal projects, management buy-ins and buy-outs, co-investments, debt and equity fundraisings and refinancing.

Consumer Sector Specialists


We are committed consumer sector specialists, offering leading expertise and insights across food & beverage, retail and consumer brands and restaurants and leisure. This means we know the buyers of businesses, their current attitude to transactions, how they behave in auctions and understand the nuances and complexities in the full range of consumer business enabling us to deliver strong results for all our clients.

Future Focused


The best advice is shaped not simply by what is happening in a market now, but also by what is going to happen in the future. We strive to be more insightful about future trends in consumer behaviour; more up-to-date in our knowledge of important technological breakthroughs; more in tune with markets, new definitions of old markets and new channels to the customer, and to be in contact with high growth companies as well as emerging management talent.

Highly Experienced


Since being established in 2004 Spayne Lindsay & Co. has advised on over 90 completed transactions with a combined value of c.$10 billion. Our significant experience and execution capabilities allow us to deliver best outcomes and exceed our clients’ expectations.

End-to-End Execution


We adopt a very ‘hands-on’ and committed approach to deal execution preferring to take a partnership approach to all our assignments. This sees us work closely with our clients through all stages of transactions from initial preparation and planning to agreeing the final legal documentation. Uniquely, we remain heavily involved throughout the negotiation and legal documentation phases working alongside our clients until the transaction is complete ensuring they achieve their strategic goals.

International Reach


Spayne Lindsay & Co. has a strong track record of completed international transactions. Our extensive global reach is supported by our international advisory network of partner firms developed over several decades of working in the international consumer sector. This proprietary network gives us outstanding access to consumer companies and investors across the globe.
