Creative Private Equity Financing Structures

Euro Credit has identified a network of independent, third-party private equity consultants that have a demonstrated ability to builds bespoke private equity investment structures that go beyond the standard investment models in the industry.  Under the umbrella of their separate businesses, those consultants have factored investors’ goals and needs to structure private equity investments as:
A management buyout or recapitalization. Euro Credit’s services help an investor to bring the capital that management needs to complete a particular business strategy. The consultants in our network can then assist management teams to enable them to assume full ownership and control of the company and either to buy out existing investors or to refinance current debt. Independent consultants prefer this structure when some but not all company owners seek to exit the company to achieve diversity in their own portfolios, or where those owners seek to reduce but not eliminate their management involvement.
Add-on acquisitions. In certain situations, a company may be better able to add new lines of business or to expand an existing business by acquiring other companies. Our financing services give independent private equity consultants the resources and wherewithal to work in partnership with management to identify potential acquisition targets. From the perspective of an independent private equity consultant, the ideal target provides excess returns with reduced costs or improved business opportunities and with synergies and stronger presences in an industry or markets.
Consolidations and roll-ups. The private equity industry has long recognized that fragmented industries can achieve real economies of scale when several smaller entities are consolidated under a single operational umbrella. Euro Credit gives its clients access to liquidity that they can use to fund a consolidation or roll-up, and to third-party private equity specialists with knowledge and experience in multiple industry sectors to provide guidance and support to execute these transactions.
Operational turnarounds. One of the most challenging decisions that an investor can make is to dedicate the hidden liquidity in a portfolio to a company that seeks to salvage a flagging line of business or the entire company itself. Underperforming businesses and financially or operationally distressed companies can find themselves with few options but to restructure their businesses either in or out of court. The standalone private equity specialists we work with a focus on identifying businesses with sound fundamentals that are receptive to new ideas and strategies. Clients can then use the cash resources from our lending and financing services to turn those businesses around with the fewest disruptions or dislocations.
Divesting non-core or non-strategic assets can add capital and resources to seed new and more profitable business offerings. The third-party private equity advisors in our referral network have structured divestitures as aggregated transactions with infusions of liquid capital that our clients have procured through our lending services for further business development and expansion.
Public to private transactions. A strategy adopted by management teams at many micro-cap companies is to take the company private with open offers to buy out existing shareholders. Our clients have turned to us for the financing of these transactions where outside private equity consultants have determined that the cost of public ownership (which, even for a small company, can be in a range of $1 to $2 million) exceeds the benefits that such small firms derive from it.
Growth and development capital. The private equity specialists in Euro Credit’s network have largely adopted our partnership philosophy to draw growth or development capital from private equity resources.
