Attracting capital through equity, loan capital or alternative forms of finance requires a thorough knowledge of the sector and legal knowledge of national and international capital market transactions. Houthoff's Capital Markets Team has a proven track record in this area.
Our capital market specialists work closely with our experts in a range of fields, including M&A, finance and financial supervision. The majority of capital transactions we assist with are cross-border, and this has given us in-depth expertise in the interaction between Dutch and American securities legislation. We work closely with leading law firms around the world for all other international issues. Our Capital Markets Team always seeks to push the boundaries further for our clients and delivers future-proof solutions.
EQUITY CAPITAL MARKETSAn initial public offering (IPO) needs to be prepared and carried out with care. Our Equity Capital Markets Team has in-depth knowledge and experience of listing Dutch and foreign companies on Euronext Amsterdam, NYSE, NASDAQ and the London Stock Exchange. Our Equity Capital Markets team advises issuers, shareholders and underwriters on matters relating to IPOs, rights issues, share issues, private placements and share buy-back programmes. With its thorough knowledge of the latest developments, the Equity Capital Markets team guides clients through each phase of the process and ensures that they are and remain compliant with current and amended laws and regulations.
DEBT CAPITAL MARKETSThe way in which businesses organise their financing arrangements will depend heavily on their specific needs. Our Debt Capital Markets Team assists in setting up the right legal structure for our clients' business operations. We can help you decide between various options, such as stand-alone bond issues or bank-bond finance. Our Debt Capital Markets Team was one of the pioneers in advising Dutch companies on private placements (USPPs) and as a result has direct knowledge and experience of the particular matters that concern issuers of these products. In addition, the Debt Capital Markets Team supports and assists banks with all other kinds of debt capital structures, such as High Yield Notes. In view of the cross-border nature of most of these financing transactions, we always work closely with the top experts in other jurisdictions.
