The Client Problem-Solving Approach

  • Life cycle financing
  • Financial restructuring
  • Risk management
  • Valuation as a tool of relationship management
  • The value-drivers

Case study: Autolinks

What are the value-drivers for this Finnish company? From a corporate finance perspective, what would you advise the client?

Capital Structure and Risk Management

  • Is the client leaving money on the table?
  • How can cost-of-capital and capital-structure analysis help?
  • Does the company’s capital structure match its business risk?
  • How can the form of debt match the company’s financial risks?
  • Financing with derivatives
  • A roadmap for corporate funding choices
Case study: Liberty Travel

Liberty Travel needs seasonal financing, and is considering several alternative loan structures as well as how to hedge their risks. What makes most sense for the client and the bank?

Part 2

Using the Bank’s Resources to Solve Client Problems

Financing Resources

  • Exploiting debt-capacity opportunities
  • What debt financing techniques are available in today's banking and capital markets?
  • How can clients use syndicated loans, asset-backed securities, mezzanine finance, private equity and other forms of financing for growth?
  • When does a leveraged recapitalization make sense?
Case study: Spacemakers of Kuwait

Spacemakers, a client of your bank, needs additional financing. The CEO has invited you to discuss availability and pricing. What makes most sense for the client and the bank?

Acquisition opportunities

  • How can valuation analysis help a customer identify M&A and LBO opportunities?
  • Leveraged and merger synergies
  • Financing the acquisition
  • Exit choices
  • Alternative financing techniques – applying the bank’s resources

Case study: Financing the Cap des Biches Acquisition

A client of the bank is soliciting proposals to arrange the financing of an international acquisition. Groups will work on structuring a financing package. In doing so, they will consider what the bank has to offer, costs to the client and profitability to the bank, risk management aspects, and ancillary business stemming from the deal.
