Capital Raising

Capital Raising

SDCL’s Investment Banking Group is focussed on advising and assisting corporate and financial clients in raising capital through private placements of equity, and debt securities.

We work with selected companies and financial institutions to assist them in raising capital from a broad range of institutional investors. Typical transactions include private placements of common equity, convertible preferred stock, mezzanine debt or convertible debt for uses of proceeds ranging from growth capital to acquisition financings to recapitalizations. In conjunction with financial institutions we work to secure capital commitments for investment activities in private equity and infrastructure. Clients include private companies and financial institutions raising capital through traditional private placements.

SDCL is particularly qualified to add value to our clients in the private placement process. Our investor relationships cover the full spectrum of the private capital markets, including venture capital funds, pension funds, insurers, hedge funds, mutual funds, strategic investors, university and foundation endowments, fund of funds, investment trusts, sovereign wealth funds and family offices.
