Private Equity Portfolio Analysis

Challenge

A private equity client required working capital funding for a portfolio of companies. The client specialised in near-distressed or recovering assets which meant that OpCo financing capacity was limited. In-depth, uniform and aggregated financial information from the portfolio companies was also not readily available.

Solution

  • CPRA undertook credit analysis of the client portfolio and developed a consistent cashflow model for all the companies to generate an aggregated financial model and therefore view of the potential debt capacity at the portfolio level.
  • Working with Calimere Point Advisors, this credit work formed the foundation to the marketable fund raising capacity and structure for the client.
  • A credit information memorandum and presentation was also developed by CPRA which was signed off by the client and used as part of the marketing process

Result

This work enabled the client to successfully raise funding for its cashflow needs during a highly uncertain market period.
