CAPITAL & FINANCING

Jakstadt & Partner advises companies and entrepreneurs on issues related to raising capital and the structuring of finance.

When developing investment strategies for financing Jakstadt & Partner coordinates the relations between the company, the tax adviser, accountant and the bank. We therefore provide the client with advice for obtaining bank loans during the negotiation phase, taking particular account of conditions, security requirements and security options.

For many companies borrowed funds are not enough. Raising equity is growing in importance. Equity-aided financing may be necessary if the scope for borrowing through the established banks is exhausted. An enhanced equity structure may be necessary owing to the rating demands imposed by established banks in connection with Basel II.
Increasingly raising equity is in the interest of companies, as may well be the case for innovative new technology companies during the start-up phase, for expanding distribution networks, expanding production or financing a change of generation. As lending entities are frequently based outside Germany it is increasingly necessary to take account of international factors.

Jakstadt & Partner advises its corporate clients on all issues related to non-banking equity provision, including all requirements imposed under civil law, participating interests in companies and partnerships, issuing loans, atypical and typical dormant partnerships, loans, participating loans and issues associated with holding companies.

In connection with the raising of equity capital on the free capital markets we are also able to provide the necessary expertise associated with the Banking Act and the Sales Prospectus Act.

Companies in the process of expanding increasingly find that financing growth leads to the public capital market. Here it is the job of Jakstadt & Partner and its cooperation partners to structure the company initially as a small stock corporation (Aktiengesellschaft) or later as a listed company. In so doing, we always liaise closely with banks and going-public agencies. Those responsible in the newly listed companies have to observe many requirements which serve to protect the capital market: bans on insider trading, disclosure duties, corporate governance requirements, etc.
