Commercial Banking and Working Capital

We can assist with private placements of bonds and credit agreements that can be used to support capital expansion, equipment acquisition, or other capital-intensive initiatives.

  • Traditional term loans and private placements of bonds often offer lower costs and more efficient disclosures than a public offering.

  • Lines of credit are available to meet working capital and interim financing needs.
  • Medium-term financing with amortization up to 20 years is available.
  • Debt financings can potentially be taxable or tax exempt; tax exempt debt can be both qualified or non bank qualified.
  • Debt can be structured as variable or fixed rate and interest rate swaps are available to help manage interest rate risk.
  • Liquidity and credit enhancement support is available for variable rate debt in the form of letters of credit.
