For over thirty years our capital advisory group has helped numerous corporate, governmental and NGO clients with capital structuring and restructuring. We specialize in difficult-to-fund opportunities where conventional financing is simply not an option. Moreover, our international reach affords us access to the most state-of-the-art financing techniques and mechanisms available worldwide.
Bank and Financial Institution Referrals
We often receive referrals from banks and other financial institutions that have clients with non-performing or distressed loans, but are clients that the bank still feels are viable, long-term.
Equity Capital Structuring
We use our extensive knowledge of equity capital structures to advise clients on the full range of equity investment possibilities including: angel investors, crowdfunding, private placements, convertible debt, venture capital investors, etc.
Debt Capital Structuring
While debt financing is the most common and accessible means of financing, it is not without its limitations. Banks and other conventional lenders are typically only able to meet 60% – 70% of the borrower’s capital requirements.
One of the most overlooked yet effective means of raising capital is through strategic investments. Strategic investments are made when one company takes an economic interest in another company, in exchange for a financial investment.
Used extensively internationally as a technique to expedite payment between buyers and sellers, trade financing uses bank instruments such as documentary letters of credits, bank guarantees and standby letters of credit.
In situations where more creative financing structures are required, we explore innovative yet proven techniques such as accounts receivable financing (factoring), inventory/ purchase order financing, forfaiting (as opposed to forfeiting), equipment leasing, etc.
