Private placements include raising growth and expansion stage capital or acquisition financing for companies in any industry. The types of capital we raise include equity, mezzanine and senior debt. Uses of capital are typically for corporate purposes, and depending on the size and financial performance of the company, can also include shareholder liquidity.
Many private companies are deciding that the costs, liabilities, regulatory hurdles and scrutiny of "going public" in today's market environment are unappealing and are instead seeking to explore alternative opportunities to raise capital privately. We are very active in working with these companies to accomplish private financings under attractive terms for their companies and their owners.
Additionally, many small-cap public companies are evaluating the ongoing costs and benefits of staying public and are considering "going private" transactions. We will engage with these public companies and their management teams to help structure and finance these "going private" transactions. We also assist management teams who are seeking to execute management buyouts (MBOs) by identifying and sourcing a financial sponsor for their transaction and negotiating optimal price and terms.
