Private Placement


Financial Adviser

QMPF advised the University of York on its successful £120m private placement. The deal attracted strong interest from investors and was heavily oversubscribed, reflecting both the University’s recent successes and future prospects. The placement delivered long term funding at an all-in rate of around 3% and will be used to support further investment in campus and refinance some of its existing bank and EIB loans.

Jeremy Lindley, Finance Director at York, said "QMPF advised the University throughout the process of securing our recent private placement. They provided valuable assistance in reviewing our forecasts, our existing covenant requirements and considering appropriate financing options given the University’s ongoing capital programme. We were impressed with the team’s knowledge and insight which was particularly helpful during the evaluation of bids received. We would be happy to work with QMPF in the future.”
