Our global network of institutional investors allows us to fairly price and distribute our offerings with speed and discretion, avoiding "lowest common denominator" terms.

Our product offering includes:

  • PIPEs

  • Registered Directs

  • Private on Privates

  • Debt Capital Markets


 

PIPEs:

Private Investments in Public Equity transactions are our core competency and our team has experience in structuring and placing PIPE transactions from issuers across the industry spectrum listed on various exchanges. Our intuitive knowledge of the myriad of nuances regarding the financial conventions of this financing technique, coupled with our long-standing relationships with premier institutional investors allows us to quickly execute a seamless transaction.

We have experience in structuring PIPE transactions for issuers whose securities are listed in following countries (all denominated in the local currency):

  • United States

  • Canada

  • United Kingdom

  • Germany

  • Australia

  • New Zealand

With the time and cost advantage PIPE transactions have relative to registered secondary offerings, public companies are increasingly accessing the capital markets for their growth capital in this fashion. Once the domain of unscrupulous brokers and desperate issuers, some of the largest strategic and growth financings in recent years have utilized this technique.

 

Registered Directs

Registered Direct offerings are an even speedier way for US listed public companies with an existing shelf registration to raise capital via a private placement.


Private on Privates

Our corporate finance team also works with private companies to raise capital in the form of private offerings of their securities. The time to market is typically much longer for these types of transactions and the securities are typically placed with large strategic or venture capital investors.


Debt Capital Markets

When a client's financing objectives cannot be adequately addressed by an offering of equity or equity linked solutions, our corporate finance team is able to advise on the structuring and execution of complex non-equity capital transactions that precisely matches the client's funding objectives and maintains the integrity of their capital structure. This is accomplished by analyzing all debt market alternatives (including terms and conditions, structures, transaction feasibility and market capacity), understanding optimal levels of leverage and potential intercreditor arrangements, and negotiation of term sheets and documentation.

  • Bank / Fund Debt (Senior, Junior Second Lien, Mezzanine, Bridging, Acquisition Finance and PIK

  • Securitization involving all asset classes

  • Asset-Backed Finance (Property, Aircraft, Shipping, Rail, Commodity)
