A Rational Approach To Financing Private Equity Investments
Just as no two private equity investment opportunities are alike, Euro Credit knows that no single lending and financing option will fit every private equity investment. Rather than freeing up investment cash with a prefabricated investment plan and structure, Euro Credit takes a rational but creative approach that matches the financing and liquidity structure to the private equity investment.
Our internal underwriting and administration processes offer unparalleled flexibility with this approach without sacrificing any speed of execution. Once we make a commitment to extending financing for a private equity investment, we offer an industry-best guarantee that we will deliver on that commitment.
When a potential client approaches Euro Credit with specific financing and liquidity requirements for a private equity opportunity, we analyze all available resources to support that request with the lowest financing barriers and virtually no restrictions on how the funding may ultimately be used. We appreciate that a private equity investment in a client’s portfolio should do more than provide a comfortable operating cushion and we create the conditions to make that investment possible.
The third-party private equity advisors in our network can add their expertise to verify that an investment accommodates fluctuations in company performance and in external forces that might drive the company away from its strategic goals. They provide in-depth assessments of investment proposals that confirm the company's estimates of its financing needs.
Euro Credit's financing and lending services coupled with our partnership philosophy give clients and their independent advisors the power to structure private equity investments in a variety of different ways that do more than just load the target company with debt. Depending on the company's needs and an advisor’s analysis of its operations, the investment might be structured, for example, to shift control, to recapitalize debt with management-backed initiatives, to participate in industry consolidations, or to be part of consolidated accounting with minority equity investments.
Euro Credit maintains affiliations with private equity investment specialists in all major international financial markets. Our clients can utilize this network for rapid responses to requests with full confidentiality in any industry. The consolidated experience of the independent specialists and the financing and lending resources that we can bring into any private equity arena give our clients an unprecedented to access cash that can be used to close private equity investments within thirty days or less after terms sheets are agreed upon.
Business owners who have devoted their lives to building and growing a company are often loath to cede control in it, even if transferring control provides maximum liquidity and the best private equity opportunity. At every stage of a transaction, we emphasize a partnership financing and investment approach that gives owners the chance to retain a meaningful equity interest and management role in the company, or that gives key employees or family members a real opportunity to continue their participation in a growing business.A partnership philosophy also helps business owners to identify lines of business that may be ripe for divestiture, which allows management to focus on its core competency that adds true value to the company. Euro Credit’s financing and lending services open avenues for private equity companies to complete divestitures without disrupting existing core operations or any part of the company’s management or workforce.
