Company debt refinancing changes the debt structure to improve debt capacity and reduce debt service cost.
Bridge financing provides an interim financing solution or a temporary increase in current financing.
The impetus for refinancing be include management buyouts, which can facilitate succession, an interim bridge financing solution, a business facing operating stress or needing financing for a rush emergency or opportunity situation, a restructure, or the need to replace an existing debt financing. The amount, flexibility of its repayment terms and conditions, pricing, and security are frequently the critical issues.
Lenders' criteria, appetite, and pricing can vary widely, particularly between banks, non-bank, and private debt lenders. Each Lender applies their own unique approach to evaluating refinancing, and there are many specialized lenders that focus on particular aspects such as the business assets, the business case, cash flow, enterprise value and the stage of the business (growth, mature, early-stage).
