Our Debt Advisory practice provides advice to corporate and private equity clients both in conjunction with M&A advice and in circumstances where standalone debt advice is required.
Areas of specialisation include:
- Acquisition financing
- Renegotiation of existing debt facilities
- Capital structure advice
- Credit ratings advice
Gleacher Shacklock’s debt advisory mandates frequently require a combination of strategic and tactical advice as well as transaction support. Our aim is to minimise execution risk and optimise financing terms, based on a deep knowledge of the debt markets and the long term experience of the team’s professionals.
We cover all major debt markets and are product indifferent. We deal frequently with all major banks and institutions, including relationships with key transaction staff and senior management. We have access to non-standard sources of capital and have experience in most European jurisdictions.
We provide independent advice to companies and shareholders in relation to rights issues, share placements, initial public offerings and other interactions with the equity markets. As well as standalone transactions, we often advise on complex situations, potentially involving multiple forms of equity financing in conjunction with other financing sources.
We are able to single-mindedly focus on our client’s objectives and ensure that equity transactions are considered in the context of a company’s wider strategic priorities.
Our team has substantial equity capital market experience, having advised on some of the largest and most complex transactions in recent times. Our services are complementary to distribution banks and we work alongside equity syndicates and in most major global jurisdictions.
