Capital Formation

We recognize the daily challenges that client’s face and remain ready to tackle them head on. As a financial advisor to our clients, we provide the management team with our expertise on communicating and navigating the capital markets to best benefit their needs. When we consider taking a client engagement, we make certain to understand our clients’ current valuation as a standalone and also relevant to their industry peers. At that point, we can engage our investor networks to best position the client in the capital markets to maximize shareholder value.

Capitalization Planning

There are a number of steps required as part of any major capitalization plan to attract investors including:

  • Converting a company’s basic revenue and expense assumptions into pro forma financial projections that conform to Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) standards;
  • Determining the optimal capitalization mix of equity, debt, leasing or any other financing methods to lower the ultimate cost of capital;
  • Assessing the company's minimum or maximum capitalization needs, thereby reducing the need to give up too much equity too soon and increasing the probability of capital attainment;
  • Evaluating what affects a capitalization plan has on previously issued securities;
  • Analyzing Internal Rates of Return (IRR) on a series of deal structure scenarios;
  • Building an interactive financial model as a management planning tool to make qualified decisions for future capitalization planning.

We can guide you through each of these steps so that you can communicate and deliver the appropriate information for investors.

Consultation on Corporate Funding

Determining the appropriate type of financing for a company is not only critical to the planning process, but also highly dependent on the availability of capital whether in the form of equity, debt or a combination of both. We are consistently communicating with financing sources as part of our business practice and can advise and guide you toward the most viable avenues for funding.

Every company should have a short-term and long-term capital plan and should be analyzing their future financing options – ideally at times when they don’t need it so that they are prepared for any unexpected circumstances. We can help you analyze the financial metrics of your business and develop financial models so that you can greatly enhance your ability to see into the future capital needs of your company. In addition, we can guide you to find and analyze the various alternatives that are available to you to obtain the funding you need.

Evaluation of Financial Alternatives

Strategic alternatives are out of the scope of your normal business activity. So, whether you are considering new lines of business, acquisitions, a sale, merger or a consolidation of your business, we can bring objective financial and operational advice to these critical decisions.

Introduction to Capital Sources

When it comes to funding for your company, expectations have to be based on the realities of the marketplace. When we capital plan with you, it is with a view toward where you can go to get it – and so that expectations have a much higher probability of becoming a reality. Oftentimes, a viable financing solution on paper is something that may not be available based on the financial structure of your company or the timing of when you need it. We have a deep base of investment banking, investment and commercial banking contacts through which we can determine the most appropriate partner for your needs.
