Constant Capital’s restructuring practice focuses on companies undergoing a period of unexpected financial or operational turbulence. Our firm advises companies with underperforming assets and those experiencing financial distress. We also secure the capital needed to refinance or recapitalize companies. Much of our work in this area involves helping companies in areas such as turnarounds, capital raising, distressed M&A and restructuring. Our clients have included business owners, major investor/ shareholders, companies, bank lenders, and other secured and unsecured lenders.

Constant Capital’s financing professionals examine various strategies to restructure the company’s debt and equity while our merger and acquisition professionals are often called upon to analyse the potential sale of the company or its operating assets.

Our restructuring professionals provide solutions that maximize value for all constituencies, and we develop tailored restructuring plans suitable for many financial or operating challenges. Our solution-based restructuring services may include:

  • Advising lenders to over-leveraged companies on the evaluation of financial and strategic alternatives, and effecting a refinancing or sale transaction.
  • Advising companies in financial distress on lender negotiations, the determination of an appropriate capital structure, and restructuring the balance sheet through access to new financing sources, including debt or equity capital
  • Advising companies on short-term liquidity management, and repairing and recreating solid working relationships with existing lenders and creditors
  • Advising distressed companies on strategic alternatives and valuation
  • Advising on the formulation of and the execution of an exit strategy for major shareholders, or the divestiture of division/s of an entire business.
  • Advising potential acquirers in evaluating troubled target companies or targeted assets of troubled companies
  • Advising companies on a reorganization or new business plans
  • Providing access to interim management and restructuring professionals

Constant Capital works with business owners and companies to develop and implement recapitalization strategies that address specific business objectives. We carefully assess various options for reorganizing capital structure and the balance sheet to generate liquidity, refinance expensive or restrictive debt, support growth opportunities and increase shareholder value, or gain greater operational flexibility.

Our in-depth knowledge of the African and international capital markets, combined with our intimate relationships with private equity, senior debt sources and mezzanine investors, ensures that our clients find appropriate investors and receive the best possible pricing and terms.
