When to Maximize Secured Debt Financing?
Maximizing secured debt financing should be considered: to undertake a growth initiative when the shareholders of the business either do not have the financial capacity to further invest equity into the business; or, to undertake a transaction such as an acquisition or management buyout which may require the maximum borrowing capacity of the business to execute the transaction.
What is Subdebt Financing and when should you consider it?
Subdebt is high yielding debt that is subordinated to the senior secured debt of a business but ranks ahead of the shareholders’ equity. Subdebt lenders rely upon the ability of a business to generate sufficient cash flows to service both the senior secured debt and their subdebt.
