Raising equity for an internet gaming company

Client backed by private equity

The Money Gaming Corporation was a Camden-based internet gaming company run by a dynamic entrepreneur who founded it and obtained an initial round of private equity funding.

The company required a sophisticated set of projections covering the next three years and comprising cashflow, profit & loss account and balance sheet. Persuading investors of the potential of your business can be frustrating if you don’t have the numbers to back it up.

Integrated projections prepared by us

The client called in our Client Finance Director, whose spreadsheet model formed the basis of the finances in a presentation made to City institutions by the TMGC board. The first iteration was prepared in less than a week and then discussed with the client and fine-tuned speedily into a final version.

User-friendly format

Our work included integration of equity injections, marketing spend, player numbers and retention rates, and used graphs and tables to demonstrate various sensitivities and key issues.

TMGC’s chief executive, commented:

“We were delighted with the dedication and level of expertise which FD Solutions bought to the table. The assignment was carried out in a speedy and professional manner and the FD Solutions team is a great asset to our business – we look forward to working with them again very soon.”

Continued involvement

We maintained an ongoing working relationship with TMGC, liaising with its directors and external advisers on issues including VAT, offshore tax status, and its ambitious expansion plans. The company didn’t have a full-time FD, giving us the perfect opportunity to provide a broad range of advisory services to this exciting business venture.
