LSVT REFINANCING – CHANGING AN INHIBITOR TO AN ENABLER

Background

Syndicate facility signed in 2012 with expensive margins and LSVT-style covenants – the refinancing targeted to:
 
- Remove restrictive covenants
- Reduce cost of funding
- Lock into the current low long-dated interest levels
- Facilitate a value-enhancing development programme
- Obtain approval to form new group structure
 
JCRA took the board through the impact and process for restructuring, and provided regular updates throughout.
 
Our role in the process was to advise on the funding strategy, the negotiations with lenders and investors and supporting the decision making process of the Board.
