Financing growth by internationalisation, strategic acquisitions or investments in CAPEX often exceed a company’s own financial resources, especially in instances when those are urgently needed. In order to maintain entrepreneurial flexibility and achieve business expansion in a cost-effective manner the use of debt, equity and hybrid financing techniques may be optimal financing solutions for a company. This occurs when the cost and flexibility of the financing structure is linked to the company’s cash-flow based value and growth potential. Optimal acquisition finance structures are adapted to the client situation and may call for nonstandard corporate finance techniques and funding sources.
Besides growth finance GRA:FIN offers the following services:
- Refinancing, restructuring of capital
- Distressed Assets Management
- Compounding of the debt to the reasonable satisfaction of the creditor
Based on a clear understanding of the financial structure, we can investigate various solutions. Part of the solution could be recapitalisation, renegotiating loans, closing or selling business units, looking for collaboration in the chain or a (temporary) scaling down of operations. The consequences of each option will be identified and weighed against the possibilities, wishes and expectations of the organisation. Once a decision has been taken, the business needs to act quickly to achieve the desired results. We look for potential buyers, conduct negotiations with banks or investors and try to convince stakeholders of the feasibility of the plans based on thorough financial analyses.
Our Financial Restructuring service has its roots in our Merger and Acquisition practice, such as providing support to management teams for business relaunches. In these situations, it was often found that there was a huge untapped potential in organisations.
