Debt Financing Options

The debt advisory team at Dreyfus Corporation develops financing solutions for enterprises that are in situations that do not readily lend themselves to traditional capitalizations, including:

01
Entities that require non-typical capital structures;
01
Industry sectors that are unique or are difficult to finance (e.g. medicinal cannabis);
01
Businesses with complex capital structures that may involve, for example,
01
Multiple classes of stock and fractured management;
01
Companies that need rapid turnaround for near-immediate access to liquidity;
01
Businesses with unfavorable credit backgrounds or poor financial reports;
01
Companies that are shorthanded or understaffed, and that are struggling to raise financing to add new management;
01
Entities that need multiple coordinated layers of financing.

We propose and develop unique solutions for each situation. Those solutions might include one or more of:

01
First-lien or senior secured loans;
01
Second- or split-lien lending facilities;
01
Mezzanine debt, with short-term exit strategies to retire that debt upon the closing of subsequent debt or equity financings;
01
Hybrid unitranche financing that combines senior and subordinated debt and into one amount with a loan facility that includes a blended interest rate;
01
Asset-based loans (ABLs) and collateralized security loans (CSLs);
01
Bridge and pre-arranged stapled financings.
