GlassRatner begins any financing engagement with a thorough review of its client’s financing needs and objectives. This ensures that the financing is consistent with key aspects of the client’s business such as strategy shifts, immediate working capital needs, imminent capital expenditure requirements, upcoming redemptions of shareholders or other capital providers, and seasonal surges or declines in cash flows. The purpose of this review—which can also involve frank and open discussion with our client—is to ensure that the client’s balance sheet is properly structured to support its business.
GlassRatner has experience and the broad range of contacts necessary for arranging all types of financing for its clients, including:
- Senior debt (including asset-based revolver, term and cash flow loans)
- Subordinated debt
- Debtor-in-possession financing
- Bankruptcy exit financing
- Second lien financing
- Mezzanine debt
- Equity capital
- Sale/leaseback financing
Our successful financing engagements have helped our clients expand their businesses; finance an acquisition; replace lenders who want to move on; or transition ownership through stock buy backs or other leveraged transactions. Due to our extensive Bankruptcy and Restructuring Practice, we are also often called on to arrange financing for companies to enter or exit bankruptcy.
As a practical matter, most of our financing clients retain us to: a) convey a challenging “financing story” to the marketplace and/or b) ensure that the client ends up with a financing source that is a good “fit” with our client and its needs. We bring both the creativity and contacts to the client to fulfill both of these needs.
