We work with companies of all sizes across a range of sectors in considering the financing implications of various business strategies and objectives, including growth, business capacity, merger and acquisitions, regulatory implications and new initiatives/special projects and bids. This involves a detailed dialogue with senior management in order to understand the reasoning behind the strategy and the outcomes sought in following them. We frequently take this understanding forward through financial modelling in order to develop a clear framework for comparison of different inputs, assumptions and scenarios and in order to consider different financing options to underpin the strategy.
We offer clients a rigorous test of their plans within a qualitative and quantitative framework, as well as a practical and innovative approach in seeking to deliver them from a financing perspective.
Debt & Derivatives Renegotiation & Restructuring
With a fast changing world and increasing duration of financial liabilities, companies often need to renegotiate their debt and derivative instruments to reflect specific requirements, whether driven by risk management, accounting, cost pressures or financial strategy. This can be take the form of bi-lateral negotiations or more formal process involving multiple counterparties. In many cases, choosing the right option is not simple or obvious and may involve financial and other analysis before the options are clear. We understand that any decision making in a complex area like this demands absolute clarity and transparency around the associated costs and risks which we are able to provide.
Centrus supports its clients by taking a holistic approach to considering and advising on the options and approach. This is essential where change impacts both different creditor groups and/or financial liabilities and clarity of the inter-related issues is imperative. By using technology to support our advisory teams, the quantification of the cost and risk management aspects of different options forms a key plank of our independent approach to advising on such situations. In addition, our relationships with derivative market counterparties and debt providers offers us the insight of current appetite and pricing, allowing us to help our clients craft proposals to suit market preferences and demand.
Clients often enter into restructuring of derivative instruments as part of a wider renegotiation of existing borrowings. Our holistic approach allows us to join up and advise on all elements of such an exercise with a view to delivering the optimal outcome for our clients.
