This approach ultimately enables our clients to lower their cost-of-capital by negotiating the most favorable terms and pricing.
Companies that are distressed or with declining operations quickly find it challenging to secure new capital. Many companies, including ones that are mildly profitable, suffer from a lack of free cash flow due to value-destroying capital structures or limited access to the most appropriate sources of capital. A few examples would be mismatching cash-flows to assets, raising long-term debt for short-term situations, entering financial covenants that are misaligned with your company’s strategy, or simply the inability to negotiate with creditors and suppliers. Many companies also do not have the time or labor to focus all of their energy on finance and financial management issues.
Our advantage not only includes access to many sources of capital, ranging from large financial institutions to small private capital investors, but also the ability to shoulder all of the burden when it comes to finance and financial management functions. This approach allows you and your team to focus on your company's turnaround & growth. We also possess the ability to properly comprehend your unique situation, understand your company’s business model and industry, and most importantly on structuring the right deal that optimizes your company’s performance. We make sure to structure and arrange deals that are most appropriately aligned with your company’s strategic goals.
Our firm is a huge proponent on capital structure theory and the importance in designing the optimal mix between debt / equity and everything in between that maximizes your company’s value. Therefore it is vital to engage an adviser such as SalemBridge who knows how to navigate the capital markets, and all the financial jargon in between to ensure your company obtains the most optimal deal in the most least-dilutive format.
