Transaction and Crisis Management

Transaction Services: Corporate Finance

Our corporate finance services include:

 

Debt Funding Support

Through our deal experience we have established relationships with the banking and wider investment community which provides our clients with access and introductions to many providers of finance, from generic debt to private equity providers, from local and regional to international capital providers.

We work closely with our clients to identify and secure the appropriate financial structures and sources of capital for expansion and development projects.

We also provide independent advice including comparative financial evaluations and if appropriate we also negotiate with financiers for favorable terms.  Instruments may include equities, bonds, syndicated loans, commercial mortgages and other bank funding instruments, leases, securitizations and quasi debt instruments.

 

Public Equity Funding

Our Corporate Finance team has provided detailed commercial and financial advice on Initial Public Offerings and Rights Issues to a broad range of companies. We assist clients who are considering raising equity from local, regional or international capital markets and advise on markets, exchanges, regulatory authorities and issues and managing other advisers. Typically we become extensively involved in:

  • Preparation of prospectus and information memoranda;
  • Providing forecast reviews and investment options;
  • Arranging introductions to financial investors/underwriters;
  • Liaising with regulatory authorities;
  • Providing advice on structure, price, timing and financial modeling; and
  • Overall project management. 

 

Private Equity Funding

To execute deals quickly, private equity providers need immediate access to experienced resources who can efficiently and comprehensively finance the investment opportunity.  However, their lean business models mean that they need to work with professional advisers who have a deep understanding of their aims and strategies.

We are one of the leading private equity advisers and have strong relationships with the major private equity investors.

We have the industry knowledge and capability to advise on every aspect of private equity transactions from deal origination to structuring to exit planning and execution.
