North Inlet Advisors
No matter what’s on the horizon for our clients, we draw on our depth of experience to provide expert guidance.
Engaged, Independent Advice
North Inlet Advisors provides investment banking services to public and private companies presented with growth opportunities and challenges. Our team is built around experienced senior advisors, allowing us to offer a level of insightful and personalized service that’s rare in our industry. Our clients value us as long-term strategic partners rather than short-term transaction processors. Everything we do, and every decision we make, is in the best interests of the clients we serve – as if their companies were our own.
This approach takes independent thinking, creative problem solving and the ability to bring order to highly complex situations. It also requires an honest desire to serve. North Inlet Advisors delivers authentic service and tailored investment banking solutions in a space that is high in client need but underserved by the traditional investment banking model.
Corporate Development & Buy-Side Advisory
Corporate development support is the primary focus of our firm and we have a successful track record of providing clients
with holistic buy-side investment banking services to accelerate their growth trajectories. Our clients are interested in
expanding through acquisition, joint venture or partnerships. At North Inlet, we augment a company’s existing resources with
a team solely dedicated to pursuing our clients’ acquisition growth strategies.
• Corporate and M&A strategy evaluation and development
• Target identification, outreach and relationship development
• Process coordination and leadership
• Integration planning
We provide a seamless, consistent process of guidance and direction to ensure there are no gaps along the way.
Restructuring AdvisoryNorth Inlet provides out of court and bankruptcy restructuring advice to a broad range of stakeholders, including lenders, bondholders, joint venture partners, minority shareholders, boards of directors, sponsors, hedge funds and buy side investors. Firm principals have three decades of distressed experience as advisors, investors and principals in situations ranging from middle market companies with simple capital structures to some of the largest and most complex restructuring matters in corporate history.
Our services include:
- Situation assessments / business plan reviews
- Capital structure optimization
- Development of strategic alternatives
- Short term cash flow reviews and liquidity planning
- Distressed capital raising
- Structuring and negotiating assistance for forbearance agreements, complex amendments, tenders and exchanges, and balance sheet restructurings
- Distressed M&A and valuation services
- Monitoring and oversight
Discrete Sell-Side Advisory
Strategies are dynamic, and the next step toward growth may be a divestiture or change in ownership. While we don’t explicitly pursue stand-alone sell-side assignments, these engagements can evolve from North Inlet’s advisory relationships and our team’s buy-side and sell-side M&A experience. We specialize in carve-outs and negotiated transactions, not broad auctions.
We provide problem solving advice for clients facing non-vanilla, complex financial situations. We dig deep to understand the critical issues, identify feasible alternatives, assess the financial impact of different structures, and negotiate the most attractive solution.
