Acquisition loans

Acquisition loans

When you face a challenging acquisition, we can support you with structuring and arranging complex debt financing solutions. We offer the following types of financing:

  • Medium to long-term bank loans
  • Short-term bridge loans for subsequent refinancing on the capital and/or credit markets

For larger financing volumes, we can act as the arranger, underwriter, and agent for syndicated acquisition loans. 

Leveraged buyout loans

Leveraged buyout loans

Buyout financing is a popular form of financing when buyers wish to invest only a limited amount of their own capital.

Examples:

  • Succession arrangements
  • Company purchases

We can support you with management buyouts (MBOs), management buyins (MBIs), and leveraged buyouts (LBOs), and arrange the debt capital you require.

For larger financing volumes, we can act as the arranger, underwriter, and agent for syndicated buyout loans.

Syndicated loans

Syndicated loans

Syndicated loan financing is used to raise a large amount of debt capital via the banking market. Syndicated loans are employed in various situations from 50 million Swiss francs upwards.

Examples:

  • Medium-term operational finance for ongoing business activities
  • Investment and expansion financing
  • Acquisition and LBO financing
  • Project financing for infrastructure projects in Switzerland

We can arrange the syndicated loan, take care of loan administration, and as a central point of contact, coordinate tasks between you as the borrower and the financial institutions involved as lenders.
