CORPORATE FINANCE & RESTRUCTURING

We provide an array of capabilities to support investment decision making, backed by deep expertise across diverse industry sectors. Our clients include private equity funds, hedge funds, sovereign wealth funds, investment banks, commercial banks, arrangers, strategic investors, and insurers.

Mergers & Acquisitions

We have created value in hundreds of M&A transactions across a range of industries. Our services include conducting industry and market scans; designing acquisition and divestiture strategies; developing robust, analytically driven due diligence; and assisting with transaction negotiations. We focus on assessing future transaction market/competitive potential, value chain drivers, business designs, and management; finding and profiling potential partners/buyers; devising optimal transaction structures; and facilitating the decision-making process.

Structured Finance

We have participated in the valuation, structuring, and execution of many large securitization, reinsurance, and other structured finance transactions on both the buy and sell side. Our support includes asset valuation and analysis of asset-backed securities; structuring and development of securities, including risk assessment at various levels; and provision of risk assessment analysis to underwriters as part of the due diligence process.

Project Finance

We have a long track record of helping investors value, intermediate, and place major infrastructure and other business development projects. Across industries such as transportation, communication, and energy, we have developed market demand forecasting for large infrastructure projects; quantified risk and priced, structured, and negotiated public-private development and investment options; and assessed alternative bid or transaction structures from market and financing perspectives.

Restructuring

We act as a trusted advisor to companies and investors as they take on the challenges of strategic, operational, and financial restructuring. In the process, we place a particularly high priority on developing sustainable restructuring concepts that address both the market and competitive environment as well as specific factors for success. We act as a coordinator for restructuring processes, as an objective expert, and a neutral third party who provides quantitatively supported advice to address the interests of management, shareholders, lenders, and other stakeholders. With more than three decades of experience in strategic, operational, and financial restructuring, we offer a complete management solution and "one-stop-shop" approach to turning around companies.

Post-Merger Integration

We have developed a holistic approach to ensure companies capture the full value of transactions. This approach includes effective alignment and culture change, improving operations management and performance, customer retention, supplier/vendor integration, and intelligent rationalization – backed by detailed, step-by-step implementation support.
