Our professional scope of services
Our services for private capital raising transactions typically involve:
Developing the Financial Model:
This analysis is a comprehensive assessment of the business. It includes sales and profitability, material and labor costs, current debt structure, current capitalization and future needs. It is the basic information needed by the private capital markets to evaluate investment potential and to set terms and pricing.
Designing the Capital Structure:
Our daily activity in the private debt and equity markets provides us with a broad knowledge of institutional lender criteria, availability of funds and pricing. We use this information to determine the amount and type of capital that is required to meet the needs of our clients.
Preparing a Placement Memorandum:
The placement memorandum paints an accurate picture of a business, its financial needs, the competitive environment and future opportunities. It then delivers a compelling rationale for investing in the firm, highlighting the potential for superior long-term return on investment.
Targeting Institutional Investors and Lenders:
Finding capital markets that want to finance a particular industry is the most direct route to closing a transaction. Our network allows us to connect our clients with markets that are ready, willing and able to provide the capital required.
Creating the Issuer Presentation:
Cowen will take the lead in helping you create an effective presentation that maintains interest and addresses the issues that lenders and investors find most important.
Private investor and lender placements are typically exempt from public disclosure. So how do you find out if you are getting appropriate/attractive terms and pricing for your company? Cowen benchmarks the proposals received against our library of transactions that contains the terms and pricing of private capital placements from around the world.
