Through our combined 60 years experience we have developed a deep understanding of how banks and non banks view the debt capacity of a business.
We have deployed our Debt Advisory experience to benefit a number of our clients, advising and working with their accountants and lawyers to model the optimal debt profile for acquisition funding, which includes:
- Building out the business case for earnings normalisations acceptable to lenders,
- Stress testing forecasts,
- Covenant testing,
- Amortisation settings,
- Due diligence advisory, and
- Detailed negotiation of loan documentation and security documentation.
We have also provided Debt Advisory services for restructuring the debt profile and covenant regime for distressed businesses, which includes leading the negotiations with their banks over extended engagements to allow management to focus on the business.
"Soon after listing in 2017 we needed funding for 2 transformational acquisitions. EMK Thomas lead and secured bank funding when others told us we would need to look at more expensive options. Tom’s knowledge of our business and his ability to leverage this to get what we need has helped our business grow, and we now consider him as part of our extended team."
Business and Corporate Finance
"Our Development Group has sourced its financing needs almost exclusively through the services and resources of Jonathan Koziaris and EMK Thomas Capital and Advisory. The services offered and the expertise and professionalism with which they were delivered was excellent and the results were well above our initial expectations. Jonathan and his organisation approached our brief with honesty, transparency and vigour and satisfied our financing needs in a timely manner. We continue to use their services and do not expect that this will change anytime in the future."
Property Development and Construction
"Tom from EMK Thomas came on as our Debt advisor in January 2018 and we have retained his services ever since. His expert knowledge of how banks work has been of enormous benefit in helping us secure funding when we needed it. EMK Thomas is always available when we need them and we consider Tom a trusted adviser to me and my CFO. "
