Working with both private and public companies, our custom financing solutions include and often combine common equity, convertible preferred equity, redeemable preferred equity, or convertible debt.
We seek to work with companies about to commence commercial operations through to profitability with secured debt or debt-like financing. We can tailor terms and structure to reflect a company’s stage of growth.
Our team can work with companies on either passive royalty financings (company receives a passive third-party and typically non-dilutive royalty) or synthetic royalty financings (company creates royalty on its own product). Royalty financings can include traditional royalty purchases, structured royalty acquisitions (including annual or cumulative caps), or royalty-backed debt.
We can work directly with companies to help bring new products or therapies to the market. Our structures can help companies achieve their financial, accounting, and strategic aims all while retaining control of the development of their assets.
We have worked directly with healthcare funds to help fund the exit of assets at the end of fund life, acquire earnouts, or help fund incremental investments post-LP commitment period. We can transact at the fund or asset level.
