The ability of a business to obtain the most appropriate financing requires a professionally prepared proposal that provides the capital source with the necessary information in a professional and organized format, a network of capital providers covering an wide variety of specialties, as well as experience negotiating with capital providers and legal counsel.
We work with the senior management of clients to discern the most appropriate financing structure for a business or project. We do this by preparing financial models and forecasts as well as sensitivity testing . Financing structures could involve senior debt, mezzanine capital, asset based lending or leasing. Larger transactions could also involve arranging a financing syndicate.
An accurate understanding of a business requires the building of a financial model which replicates the performance of a business under various scenarios. Models incorporate multi-variable analysis and can include changes in revenue, sales margins, balance sheet structures, financing and financing costs, inventory, raw material costs, accounts payable and receivable changes, working capital, capex, foreign exchange rate, labour rate changes, hedging strategies and other key variables.
We have relationships with network of capital providers including chartered banks as well as an array of specialty lenders for all types of financing requirements including real estate, project financing, equipment, MBO's, aviation, leasing, operating capital, cash flow lenders, international trade finance, agriculture and off-shore financing. Our experience and success in the market has built a large network and credibility within the financing community.
We negotiate with capital providers to obtain reasonable conditions, covenants and pricing. We also review financing term sheets and work with bank and customer legal counsel to draft final credit agreements as well as mutually agreeable inter-lender and standstill agreements. When required we also advise on JV agreements/ Partnership Agreements.
Business planning is a broad term for everything from the "big picture" to the smallest operational details of business. Our experience in having analyzed and financed hundreds of companies provides us with a considerable experience in many fields. We deliver standalone consulting service for a variety of corporate initiatives from capital expenditure decisions, divestitures, acquisitions and restructurings.
We can advise businesses requiring a financial restructuring to meet requirements of shareholders or creditors. 25 years of experience with these situations provides the ability to quickly identify restructuring options and how to negotiate with the multiple stakeholder groups.
