How are you going to fund your next wave of growth? Should you use debt or equity …and if so, how much of each and who do you get it from, how much and when?
The types and sources of financing are usually stage dependent, and based on the eight basic factors that influence capital structure. Planning for the capital needs of your company usually gives you increased odds of getting the capital you want at competitive costs before you need it.
We lead the process and help management determine the viable financing options and better understand how to fund growth, working capital, turnarounds and acquisitions.
The Financing Accelerator™ is our proven service for developing and implementing funding alternatives. The section below titled "Approach" provides details. Much of the process is based on our practical experience and research as published in the Handbook of Financing Growth.

Once the proper capital structure is determined, we drive the process of implementing the necessary changes. Among specific activities, this usually includes:
In addition to overall capitalization projects, we advise on (and implement) specific initiatives such as company valuation, financing a management buyout, or financing specific asset acquisitions.
