Debt Advisory

PricewaterhouseCoopers helps companies and other borrowers with all aspects of debt and equity. Businesses that need to raise debt finance, refinance, or obtain waivers and amendments to existing finance arrangements, are facing an unpredictable response from their lenders, even when their banking relationships have historically been strong.

The banking sector is undergoing a period of rapid change; PricewaterhouseCoopers deeply understands the creditor market, especially in stressed situations, and we can use our knowledge to provide independent advice to help companies raise or retain financing on the most appropriate terms.

The Debt Advisory group works with companies and their sponsors throughout the credit spectrum, from investment grade to those with stressed balance sheets. We also have experience across the full range of debt markets including banking, capital markets, asset-based lending, securitisation and project debt.

PwC also offers comprehensive and integrated advice on related tax, legal and regulatory issues. Our advice is independent and unbiased by ties to specific financing sources or products.

All mandates are led by senior, experienced corporate finance professionals. As one of the world's largest advisory practices, we have strength and depth in dealing with the issues faced in financial reorganisations, and have advised and assisted on some of the most complex transactions in recent times.

Debt advisory provides strategic advice on:

  • Conducting competitive tenders for the provision of financing solutions, including the negotiation of terms sheets and financing documentation, for both debt and equity
  • Negotiating amendments to existing financing terms, including covenant amendments and waivers, and debt rescheduling
  • Negotiating restructurings, including debt for equity swaps
  • Managing the rating agency process
  • Managing stakeholder relationships
