Debt Advisory

CreditSME provides small and medium sized business with a debt advisory service that can cover a broad range of services relating to the debt capital structure of the business. Broadly, this service includes setting and implementing a strategy to achieve the optimal capital structure and best loan terms for a business.

More specifically, the service may include running a competitive process with a number of banks for a new loan or refinancing, reviewing and negoitating terms with prospective convertible note investors or arranging a larger loan facility with a number of private lenders.

Our debt advisory service is typically for businesses seeking loans of between $2m and $100m. We offer a very competitive fee structure that can be tailored to your objectives including success based pricing.

Typical advisory assignments

New loan facility

For new loan facilities, CreditSME will typically:

  • Determine the most appropriate debt structure for the business;
  • Run a competitive process with a group of the most suitable lenders;
  • Assist in the lender diligence process;
  • Negotiate final terms with the selected lender; and
  • Manage the process all the way through to completion.


The process for a refinancing will generally follow the same process as a new loan.

This includes forming a view on the best pricing that is likely to be achievable and then running a competitive process with a group of selected lenders to achieve these targeted loan terms.


Other assignments include:

  • Reviewing and negotiating convertible loan terms or other structured loan products;
  • Arranging debt capital with non-bank lenders including for complex or difficult situations; and
  • Assisting with negotiations with an existing lender.
