Small and Midsize Enterprises (SME) have the same financial and strategic imperatives as larger companies and often are faced with additional challenges due to size. They may need to raise capital to fund internal growth or to finance acquisitions. They may want to achieve liquidity for shareholders or bring in equity to reduce debt.
We have extensive experience helping clients to raise capital in virtually any market condition. We draw on that experience to assist our clients with the unique challenges of selling equity, as well as structuring and raising debt and subordinated / mezzanine debt. Our extensive network of banks, hedge funds, private equity, venture capital, mezzanine, strategic and other institutional financing institutions, and investors will benefit clients in the sectors we serve. We help our clients identify the most suitable and balanced short to long term business strategy and then work with them to execute such to a successful and sustainable long term balanced profitability.
Besides our 30+ years of experience in the financial markets we have a breadth of operational and industrial experience that provides clients with unique problem-solving perspective. We offer straightforward, realistic in-depth assessments, evaluate competitive positioning, uncover pitfalls and opportunities, identify synergies within and outside organizations, and evaluate build-versusbuy options. We help our clients to identify, understand, prioritize, and act on business strategic and financial issues most vital to their long-term success.
RLP’s strategic advisory assignments typically involve the business and financial issues most critical to the long-term competitiveness of the clients.
Upon request, RLP will work with the client to determine the best way to effect increases in shareholder value, including assistance in Portfolio Optimization, Corporate Restructuring, implementation of efficiency enhancement programs; structuring strategic alliances; assistance in integration of acquired or merged businesses; implementation and realization of co-operation deals; and Marketing and Strategic Planning in anticipation of transactions.
