The firm has experience raising capital across the entire balance sheet, including senior debt, subordinated debt and equity. We approach capital raising transactions much the same way as a sell-side M&A assignment since the company is effectively "selling" itself. We employ a competitive process to extract not only the best valuation for the client, but the best terms and conditions.
In terms of raising equity, our preference is to work with established companies seeking growth equity as opposed to start-up companies requiring early stage venture capital. From a size standpoint, dollar amounts much below $3.5 million are considered too small for equity and mezzanine financings. With respect to senior debt, dollar amounts much below $12.5 million are considered too small.
