Debt Financing & Equity Capital Raising Advisory in Russia 

Our capital raising advisory focuses both on debt financing & equity raising in Russia. We help to select appropriate financing instruments, develop business plans and financial models. We provide assistance in identifying investors and financial institutions, and advice and support on debt restructuring.
We first conduct a detailed evaluation of the company in question to develop a robust discounted cash flow valuation analysis. We then prepare funding requirements and capital structure analysis to justify the size of the equity and/or debt required. 
The combination of the valuation analysis and financial plan will determine the indicative percentage shareholding that the new investors will receive for their investment or the level of debt which is possible to attract.  
We provide the range of services:
  • setup of integrated financial planning
  • development of structured financing concepts
  • identification of appropriate debt financing partners
  • preparation or improvement of pitches and presentations for financing partners
  • drawing up long/short lists of appropriate debt financing partners
  • initial discussions with debt financing partners
  • support for contract negotiations
  • transaction structuring
  • support and advice throughout the whole process
We prepare an investor teaser, a prospectus or information memorandum and an investor presentation. If necessary we also assist in the preparation of a data room. 
We propose a list of potential investors and advise on prioritization and tactics for approaching them. We assist in preparing and conducting investor meeting roadshows. We then facilitate exchange of confidentiality agreements and transmission of preliminary information materials to potential investors. After submission of indicative bids we advise on short-listing and facilitate site visits, data room access and due diligence meetings for short-listed investors. We assist in the final negotiations, structuring and transaction documentation in conjunction with the client’s lawyers and other advisors.
