What makes us different?
LB Capital is an Oil and Gas Corporate Finance Boutique that provides cutting edge strategic advisory services primarily on M&A (mergers and acquisitions) and divestiture transactions. We serve corporate clients and governments, as well as a range of institutional and private investors, including sovereign wealth funds.
We were founded on the belief that a private and independent advisory firm that offers pure advice, untainted by the conflicts inherent in multi-product investment banks, offers superior value to sophisticated and result-oriented sector clients. With no lending and trading conflicts, LB Capital’s fundamental focus, our comparative advantage, is in valuing our long-term client relationships by delivering high-impact advisory services based on specialist experience, uncompromising integrity and continuity of personnel. Based on long-standing relationships with senior executives in the sector, and free from the conflicts that can restrict bulge-bracket advice, we believe in truly independent advice in the boardroom.
In addition to independence, our distinct advantage is our singular sector specialisation in Oil & Gas that makes us better positioned to recruit and train the most talented amongst sector-competent M&A advisers, from Analyst and Associate staff to Managing Director levels. Since inception, our model has evolved in response to the industry’s increasing demand for a more thoughtful and sophisticated approach to portfolio optimization, capital re-deployment, and careful investing. As a result, our track record of delivering value for clients and our unique combination of skills has quickly developed a stream of a plethora of mandates from sophisticated clients looking to achieve superior results in the current market conditions.
A single-minded commitment to Energy and Resources has enabled us to deliver the highest level of support, service and value-added advice to projects and clients that require more detailed attention that is unattainable by universal investment banks. We advise on:
• Corporate and Asset Level Acquisitions
• Asset divestitures
• Exit strategies and company sales
• Joint Venture structuring and execution
• Oil & Gas farm-outs and farm-ins
Our particular strength is in the field of divestment advisory services for oil and gas companies by combining hands-on E&P sector experience with sophisticated transaction expertise. Our comprehensive divestiture services include the following:
• Evaluations of upstream and midstream assets and presentation of underlying asset value
• Identification of buyers for assets and communicating the strategic rationale for transactions to them
• Transaction guidance
• Portfolio strategy and selection
• Preparation of properties
• Marketing and negotiations
Consequently, a majority of our work is cross border, with a particular focus on the UK North Sea, the Middle East and North and West Africa.
