Corporate Finance

As an Investment Bank, our role is to evaluate your company's financial needs and to help you raise the type of capital that best fits those needs. The term “Corporate Finance” is associated with transactions in which capital is raised in order to create, develop, or grow businesses – i.e. with transactions in which capital is raised for the corporation. In the Public and Private Markets, these may include:

  • Raising seed, start-up, development or expansion capital
  • Mergers, demergers, acquisitions or the sale of private companies
  • Mergers, demergers and takeovers of public companies, including public-to-private deals
  • Management buy-out, buy-in or similar of companies, divisions or subsidiaries – typically backed by private equity
  • Equity issues by companies, including the flotation of companies on a recognized stock exchange in order to raise capital for development and/or to restructure ownership
  • Raising capital via the issue of other forms of equity, debt and related securities for the refinancing and restructuring of businesses
  • Financing joint ventures, project finance, infrastructure finance, public-private partnerships and privatizations
  • Secondary equity issues, whether by means of private placing or further issues on a stock market, especially where linked to one of the transactions listed above
  • Raising debt and restructuring debt, especially when linked to the types of transactions listed above

Sourcing and managing capital are often key challenges faced by business owners. Your company should be driven by its business strategy, and should not be constrained by its existing capital. In the current rapidly changing and increasingly complex capital markets environment, it is critical to have a trusted advisor with the experience and proven ability to engineer a financing solution.
