Debt and capital advisory

The changing financial environment has caused funding solutions for companies to become increasingly complex and time consuming. The more challenging environment requires new funding solutions to match changing business models and strategies. Deloitte has designed specific services for companies at every stage of the debt cycle in order to deliver the optimum funding structure to meet their particular needs.

Our services include:

  • Conflict free independent advice - We are independent of capital; therefore our advice remains truly independent and aligned in assisting our client to reach their objectives throughout the process.
  • Financial expertise - We have a detailed knowledge of the Irish banking market and an up to date insight into the workings of the main institutions including NAM.  Through the Deloitte network we have access to market leading expertise and execution resources.

Our team provides specialist finance raising and commercial contract negotiation advice to private and public sector clients. We operate across three sectors: Energy and Resources, Central Government, and Local Government.

We act as financial adviser to the private and public sector on debt raisings and where large volumes of long term finance are required for investment grade, and near investment grade, projects across sectors.

Our service areas include:

Determining value is a key part of most financial transactions, requiring the right blend of technical competence, experience and professional judgement.

Our valuation specialists are part of a global network of practitioners with access to experience and market information around the world and offer advice to both public and private companies.

We also assist management with its financial reporting requirements under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). In particular, the requirements of IFRS3 Business Combinations mean public companies undertaking acquisitions are now obliged to allocate the purchase consideration between tangible assets, intangible assets and goodwill.

Our team assists in a variety of context:

  • Mergers, acquisitions and disposals
  • Expert determination and dispute
  • Business reorganisation and restructuring
  • Tax planning and compliance
  • Financial and regulatory reporting (including purchase price allocation and impairment studies)
