Fresh capital, if necessary.
There are many ways to obtain urgently needed fresh capital. The most serious and promising strategy is based on a mix of gaining new financing partners and funds, reducing debt and raising own potential (optimizing working capital, sale-and-leaseback, etc.).
In any case, you will need a Corporate Finance Manager at your side who is perfectly prepared to enter into decisive discussions with potential equity investors and/or outside creditors, who will take over the process management for the implementation of structured financing or who will take over the negotiation of syndicate, acquisition credit and security agreements for you. This also includes well-founded knowledge of the pitfalls lurking in connection with restructuring reports or the creation of information memoranda.
However, the following realization is the most important: If you need fresh capital in difficult times, you should come up with fresh ideas with regard to your own ability to service debt. Or know someone who can. We're that “someone”.
Ideal refinancing strategy.
First of all: There is no such thing as an “ideal refinancing strategy”. Instead, it has to be examined in detail how a specific company is structured in terms of profitability, cash flow, debt ratio and interest burden. On this basis, it is necessary, for example, to examine whether a refinancing mix (e.g. a combination of promissory notes and bonds) is the best solution. With such a mix, the financing is spread across several backs, which usually leads to a reduction of the annual interest burden. Depending on the industry, company size and market potential, however, it can also make sense to attract a potent anchor investor, such as a silent partner, who secures the refinancing. Or the owners believe in the turnaround and/or growth concept and make new money available, which in turn can motivate banks or other stakeholders to increase or extend loans. So, you can see: There are plenty of strategies and instruments, but your confidence in the expertise and network of your Corporate Finance Management partner is decisive.
