Capital raising

Capital raising

Crest generates value for its clients through advisory and capital raising services across acquisitions and disposals, debt advisory, equity fund raising and corporate restructuring.

We offer assistance to predominantly privately held businesses in the capital and debt markets for expansion, acquisition and development finance. We draw on our network of funders from private equity houses, high net worth individuals, the investor community, banks and development finance institutions.

Our services include:

  • advising on the most suitable sources of funding for a project;
  • advice on converting a business plan into a bankable document;
  • assessment of the optimum funding structure;
  • introduction to the most appropriate funders based on the nature of the project and underlying risks;
  • arranging funding, typically comprising:
                • preparation of draft term sheets;
                • completion of a viability and risk report for use by the business in its negotiations with funders;
                • assistance with negotiations of the terms and conditions; and
                • advice on all legal documentation and funding instruments.

We will work with you in order to understand the drivers behind your business and the need for new or replacement capital. This could arise from a need to refinance the business due to an inefficient and costly capital structure, to new capital for an expansion project, be it through M&A activity or capacity expansion and all in between. Throughout, we will consider your short, medium and long term business needs, as well as accounting, regulatory, tax and other issues.
