Financing alternatives and consultation
There are multiple ways to finance a business. Such methods range from strict asset-based approaches to general unsecured debt. One accepted tool is to obtain mezzanine debt which occurs when a hybrid debt issue is subordinated to another debt issue from the same issuer. Mezzanine debt has embedded equity instruments attached, often known as warrants, which increase the value of the subordinated debt and allow greater flexibility. It is important to work with a professional adviser that understands the needs of the business and its owners and has the resources to draw upon and work with appropriate parties and institutions.
