NIBC has built a unique position in European leveraged finance over the past 20 years, focusing on financing acquisitions by private equity funds in North-West Europe. We have a strong track record in providing senior and super-senior financing for companies with EBITDA in excess of EUR 10 million, working together with investment professionals at private equity funds and management teams of companies with an enterprise value in the range of EUR 50-500 million. We have the ability to fund a broad array of currencies, and are an experienced provider of agency and hedging services.
NIBC Leveraged Finance consists of three teams, located in The Hague, London and Frankfurt, with international know-how in the following areas:
- Management and leveraged buyout structures
- Recapitalisations and refinancing
- Public-to-private transactions
We support private equity owned companies while they are going through strategic and operational change. Our financing solutions are arranged in a club deal setting or via a syndicated process, which makes our team highly experienced as a lead arranger or as a member of a large financing syndicate.
Next to our balance sheet offering, our Credit Management team manages leveraged loans for our institutional investor clients through our CLO’s and managed accounts.
