NewPoint was retained as exclusive financial advisor to improve its capital structure to match the cyclical nature of its cash flows. NewPoint’s role included an assessment of the situation, development of an appropriate financial strategy, raising of the capital and playing a key role in all negotiations and documentation leading to close.
Given the cyclical nature of the company’s operations and the substantial operating leverage it utilized, NewPoint implemented a solution that provided for the use of longer-term patient capital that was collateralized against the fixed asset base. This solution immediately relieved the company of its liquidity issues and provided the catalyst for the execution of a growth strategy.
