Wagamama FD in refinancing windfall

The noodle-bar chain attracted investments of £17m from Hutton Collins, the boutique investment bank, and banking facilities of £47m from Royal Bank of Scotland, The Independent reported.

Four directors, including finance director Steve Hill, landed a £4m windfall as a result of the deal, which leaves Wagaman with £13m of capital expenditure and overdraft facilities.

Hill owns 15% of the company under the new deal.

It is estimated the chain could double its current 25 stores across the UK with the money.
