If there is a good transaction or a good company that needs financing, Catella is ready. Catella can provide assistance throughout, from analysis of acquisitions, formation of companies, finding financing solutions for both equity and borrowed capital, to ultimately achieving diversification of ownership by introducing the company on the stock exchange.
Catella offers advisory within:
- mergers & acquisitions
- capital raisings
- debt & financing
- strategic direction
Catella assists companies with solutions that involve channelling capital from those that have a surplus to those that need capitalisation. Property is almost always involved. Financing may include equity or debt capital, i.e. shareholder equity in the first case and borrowing in the second. It may be that a company needs advice on how a property transaction should be financed, that a property company requires capitalisation through the stock market or debt markets, or both. Catella conducts an analysis of the optimal capital structure based on the company's needs, wishes and requirements. In the case of large transactions, several investors or several lenders may come together in a syndicate.
Equity may consist of ordinary shares with different voting rights, preference shares with preferential rights to dividends and shareholder loans that become equity upon conversion to shares. The number of shareholders can range from one individual, or a small number in a joint venture, to hundreds or even thousands for a public listing.
If it is credit that's required, we can make use of the banking system or bond and money markets. We have excellent contacts in the banking sector.
