Debt Underwriting & Equity Financing

Debt Underwriting

The debt private placement market is a fully negotiated source of long-term debt capital that can be raised without the time and expense of Securities Commission registration. Benefits of the market include quick execution, delayed amortization, flexible covenant packages, confidentiality, and pre-packaged documentation.

CIBC FirstCaribbean has an experienced team of dedicated professionals who structure and execute these types of financings for companies. Whether your company is in need of capital for acquisitions, internal growth, recapitalisations, or buyouts, our highly skilled and experienced professionals can arrange the most appropriate financing.

Equity Financing

CIBC FirstCaribbean is a leading underwriter of regional equity and equity-related financings for corporations across the Caribbean. Our leadership in equity underwriting is the product of our superior technical and transactional experience in investment banking, our strong execution capabilities in equity capital markets, and our focused and in-depth understanding of individual client needs. Our investment banking professionals work with issuers seeking to raise capital through equity or equity-related securities in an advisory capacity to determine the price and size of an offering, often committing the firm's own capital. We ensure that investing clients have access to the best new issue products being offered and to our strong distribution capabilities.

We are committed to providing high quality financial advisory services by focusing on the individual needs of our clients through innovative financings, strategic advice, capital markets expertise, and strong transactional experience.
