We have a high regard for detail. In fact, we have a serious appetite for detail and complexity because this is where we find opportunities and solutions for our clients. Combine that detail and complexity with excellent corporate strategy, and our clients invariably enjoy a competitive advantage in a transaction, project or market.
Structured Lending We work with clients to structure assets to more effectively capitalise projects and businesses. Some of these corporate finance transactions are highly structured utilising asset or contract backed securities; some through a consolidation of assets or receivables on a collaterialised basis; some through partial guaranteed structures; and some through discounting accounts receivable and future flow transactions. Acquisition and Leveraged Financing Whether it is to finance a transformational transaction, or to fund a bolt-on acquisition, we can manage the entire process from source to completion on substantial and complex domestic and cross-border projects. It can involve sophisticated inter-creditor and security sharing arrangements, with the ability to help devise and implement the corporate strategy across experts, for example, in taxation, international competition, regulatory, intellectual property and real estate. The key is the provision of the right balance and level of debt finance to marry the equity investment, and we advise on finance at the senior, mezzanine and subordinated levels.
Project Finance Carteret Capital works closely with clients to build a project finance structure that complements overall cash flow objectives and corporate strategy. Often viewed as a highly complex form of debt finance, we have the experience and know-how to build the finance structure around detailed financial modelling, securitisation options and any limited or non-recourse requirements. In any project finance transaction it is also vitally important to measure all parties' objectives (and there may be a number of parties), and we work hard in this regard.
Discounted Finance Discounting can take a myriad of forms, and we advise, manage and source purchasers of future payments across various sectors, industries and jurisdictions. Our experience in the football sector, for example, has seen us work on a substantial number of discounted corporate finance transactions for league central distributions, media and TV payments, deferred transfer fees and other receivables.
Debt Restructure Almost every organisation will, at some stage, benefit from a restructuring of the debt finance it has acquired over an extended period of time. We are able to manage the entire process to generate better value (and returns) for the business, and we can combine it with our work on equity investment to provide the optimal balance between debt and equity.
Special Situations This can be an extremely detailed and complex form of financing, and we advise and source funding in an area of corporate finance that, in certain industries and sectors, is historically difficult to place. We can source finance based on arbitrages arising from restructuring or reorganisation; against payouts on recapitalisation, merger, sale or liquidation; against litigation; and in respect of public or government-backed break-ups or malfunction.
M&A We act for clients on both the buy-side and sell-side, with an enviable Rolodex of prospective equity investors. Moreover, our service extends across the whole gamut of M&A advisory, and incorporates our leading-edge work in quantitative analysis in various sectors and industries. We advise on valuation (including unique and bespoke valuation of intangible assets), levels and methods of integration, and provide post-acquisition corporate finance and advisory services.
Capital Markets We have a leading capital markets advisory practice, derived from a strong background in investment banking and international trading on both primary and secondary markets. From acquisition support financing and pre-IPO capital raises, through IPOs, rights issues, and post-acquisition equity provision. It can often be combined with debt placement and trading, with convertible and exchangeable securities, and with complementary private equity investment. We also advise on hedging and stabilisation of equity and equity-related products and derivatives.
