Certain BGA Affiliates (Headwaters MB and de Visscher & Co) have a proven track record assessing and satisfying the capital requirements of growing businesses. They assist clients in evaluating capitalization alternatives, and structuring and obtaining the capital funding required to support numerous goals. These can include obtaining capital for internal growth, expansion of domestic or international business operations, research and development, strategic acquisitions, restructurings or buyouts, and/or the creation of liquidity for certain shareholders. BGA’s focus is driven to help reduce a company’s weighted average cost of capital, while also providing capital adequacy for growth and operating requirements, as well as shareholder liquidity needs. Through these BGA Affiliates, clients receive assistance identifying funding sources, and in evaluating funding alternatives to determine optimal structure, cost, and terms.
