Dreyfus Corporation has added a team of active, fully-dedicated debt financing specialists to privately-owned and sponsor-backed companies to secure the debt capital and structured debt financing for organic growth, strategic acquisitions, dividend recapitalizations, and refinancings of existing debt facilities. Our debt advisory services go beyond the packaged debt solutions that traditional commercial and investment banks might provide.
Our specialists begin each client engagement with a thorough due diligence analysis of the client's existing debt in the greater context of the client's overall financial picture. Where a closely-held company or family-owned business has taken on debt to finance operations, we formulate options to replace that debt with alternate financial structures that enhance the company's net profits. We provide debt solutions that focus on growing the company without increasing risks of facing either a voluntary or involuntary restructuring.
Our consultants and advisors work closely with clients to optimize their debt structures. We perceive debt financings as mechanisms that create partnerships and we endeavor to secure the best long-term institutional partners that not only provide debt financing business, but that also add valuable management and operational advice to grow existing business and to add new opportunities. Our team leverages the talents and expertise of our in-house debt financing specialists and our international affiliations with a multitude of financing resources to ensure that our debt financing strategies and recommendations serve the client’s needs without imposing undue burdens.
Our financing resources include institutional lenders throughout the global credit industry, including commercial banks, private equity resources, government investment arms, business development companies (BDCs), insurance companies, and family offices. We use proprietary research and analysis tools and technology to access real-time market intelligence on current market terms, lending trends, and structural alternatives, and we use that data to negotiate favorable debt solutions for our clients.
