Debt Advisory

FDP has advised companies in obtaining asset based loans (ABL), cash flow loans and leveraged loans from traditional banks and private credit companies. We have the skills, knowledge and relationships to assist companies in a variety of industries and situations in obtaining credit. From FDP's restructuring experience, we know what it takes to get loans through credit committee approvals, specific institutions for different lending situations, sizes and industries, and have built the professional reputation to get deals closed. FDP has experience securing varying classes and tranches of debt, including senior secured, junior secured, mezzanine, unitranche and convertible debt. FDP has experience in the following situations:

  • Growth financing
  • Acquisition financing
  • Distressed refinancing 
  • Debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing
