Raising capital can help growing companies rapidly accelerate their growth.
Growth capital can take many forms and can be provided on a financial or strategic basis, or both. Capitalizing on our extensive experience, we provide access to our vast relationships with potential growth capital partners, including investment banks, family offices, and others, and provide the resources to ensure that your company maximizes it ability to access these potential partners.
Growth capital is an equity or equity derivative investment (consisting of convertible, exercisable or exchangeable securities), generally representing a minority interest, in companies seeking to expand or restructure operations, enter new markets, expand product or service offerings, or finance a significant acquisition without a change of control of the business.
Our role on growth capital transactions is generally comprised of four parts:
On capital transactions, due diligence serves three purposes: to find and fix any materials that may cause issues later in the process, for us to get to know the company thoroughly so we can speak intelligently about the company to potential partners, and to ensure validity of the company’s information
Stress testing involves assisting the company with preparing their financial projections (if needed) and manipulating variables and assumptions in the projection model to determine possible outcomes
