The Capital Agenda puts your capital needs at the heart of our strategy and focuses on the issues that matter most to you:

The Capital Agenda

  • Raising capital

    A company’s ability to raise capital quickly and effectively is integral to its growth potential and financial well-being, and this is true in good times and bad. Whatever the motivation for raising capital, companies can access new funds more effectively if they plan ahead. They should know how and where they could access capital, if they need it.

    They should focus on:

    • Fundraising equity and debt: IPO readiness, right issues, private equity, private placement and capital markets
    • Optimising funding structures
    • Asset divestment
    • Infrastructure projects
    • Cost- and tax-efficient structures.

  • Investing capital

    Investors in your organisation want to know why: why this transaction? why at this price? why now? Complicating matters, differing stakeholders increasingly bring differing expectations of investments and returns.

    The focus should be on:

    • Acquisition and alliances
    • Delivery of synergies and effective integration
    • Planning and structuring transactions to optimise stakeholder return
    • Focused due diligence to mitigate risk and drive value
    • Asset valuations
    • Cost- and tax-efficient structures.

  • Optimising capital

    Today’s economic climate is forcing businesses to candidly assess their financial fitness. Companies today must conduct more than just a review of operations – they also need to carry out an objective assessment of their business strategies.

    The focus should be on:

    • Optimising asset portfolio
    • Delivery of synergies and effective integration
    • Improving working capital and releasing cash
    • Optimising capital structure
    • Optimising tax and corporate structure
    • Implementing the global TAS brand messaging.

    See how we can help.

  • Preserving capital

    Every business needs to continuously assess the potential impact of evolving market conditions on the performance of its operations and capital base. Even in a recovering market, companies believing themselves in a stable position find their situation can change. To preserve capital companies must continuously scour their strategies, markets and balance sheets to reassess strengths and weaknesses.

    They should focus on:

    • Stress and distress e.g., liquidity issues and turnaround plan
    • Customer and supplier analysis
    • Preserving tax assets and minimising costs
    • Refinancing and restructuring debt, equity and other obligations
    • Dealing with stakeholder relationships and pressure
    • Dispute resolution.
