Acquisition and Leveraged finance

Fast and efficient advice in turbulent markets

Share

The acquisition and leveraged finance market has developed quickly in recent years, with financial structures requiring more unusual design with ever more pressures on borrowers and lenders to achieve the necessary return on their investment. 

Through knowledge of financial products and the market in which our clients work we help them develop such structures, understanding the constraints and aspirations that impact the decision making process.

We help our clients on a wide variety of acquisition financings of both public and private companies, leveraged buy-outs and buy-ins, recapitalisations and other corporate lending transactions and regularly act for both lenders and borrowers (both corporate sponsor and fund), advisory and investment banks.

With the need to restructure deals more readily, act quickly and efficiently in often turbulent markets, we provide full service for senior unitranche, second-lien, mezzanine and PIK debt, bridge-to-bond financings, bank/bond financings, high-yield debt, securitisation take-outs and debt buy-backs.
