Time for Thoughtful Transactions

How can firms find value in today’s market? Learn about Pricoa’s patient, tailored approach for structuring and financing strategic transactions in an evolving market.

With continued macro-economic uncertainty in the UK driving low M&A volumes, the landscape for financing is inevitably experiencing a sharper focus on strategic transactions. In an environment less conducive for realisations, companies and owners are increasingly faced with the question: How can we create value? Thoughtful transactions offer opportunities for business owners to position their companies in a way that generates tangible returns, potentially offsetting the impact of higher borrowing costs. Whether considering an acquisition, entering a new market, resetting the capital structure with a new financing partner or re-balancing an asset in a portfolio, these opportunities can enable firms to position themselves for long-term growth and value creation.

Pricoa Private Capital continues to partner with business owners and fundamentally sound companies to structure and execute thoughtful financing solutions. Pricoa’s ability to provide flexible capital solutions across the credit spectrum can help firms navigate the complexities of the prevailing market conditions while simultaneously creating value.

Patient capital offers flexibility in uncertain markets. Pricoa offers several strategic options including junior capital solutions that are interest-only with no amortisation prior to maturity, as well as preferred and common equity investments. This element of ‘patience’ affords a company time to process a strategic transaction and navigate uncertain economic conditions, noting that in a high interest rate environment, the cash burden of flexible junior capital relative to senior debt is narrow. Furthermore, Pricoa’s ability to provide revolver and senior term debt alongside junior capital for a seamless, “one-stop” solution helps deliver value for our counterparties, improving speed and certainty of execution.

It’s important for firms to optimize a company’s capital structure to support both short-term and long-term business plans. Thoughtfully balancing risk (added leverage) with reward (faster growth, accomplishing other business or ownership goals) can provide greater opportunity for firms to maximise return on investment, especially in times of uncertainty.
