REYL & Cie is closely associated with entrepreneurship and corporate finance. It is fully aware that the needs of its entrepreneurial clients go far beyond the scope of traditional wealth management services. Since 2012, in order to meet its clients’ expectations and provide them with innovative solutions, REYL & Cie has developed a full range of investment banking services, focusing on long-term corporate value creation for entrepreneurial clients.
Devising innovative solutions for entrepreneurs and their businesses
REYL & Cie’s Corporate Finance team is composed of seasoned investment banking professionals. Being fully integrated within the REYL Group, they are able to work across sectors and jurisdictions to offer objective corporate finance and institutional solutions to entrepreneurs and their businesses.
The Corporate Finance team works closely with other business lines of the Bank in Switzerland and abroad in a 360° approach. The team is active in six main business areas, which are described hereafter.
Mergers & Acquisitions
REYL & Cie acts for clients on the buy-side and on the sell-side, on Swiss and cross-border transactions ranging from an enterprise value of EUR/USD 50m, up to several billions. The Corporate Finance team provides valuation advice, identifies buyers, prepares marketing documents, manages public and private auction processes and leads negotiations until financial close. It also advises prospective buyers in identifying and contacting potential targets, coordinates financial and legal due diligence and secures acquisition financing.
Equity Capital Markets
REYL & Cie provides advice on the execution and negotiation of equity transactions as well as optimal company valuation, process coordination and optimal group reorganisation to meet listing standards. In terms of execution, the Corporate Finance team offers assistance in the selection of appropriate listing places, other advisors and bookrunners, defines optimal parameters to maximise pricing and coordinates marketing efforts with research analysts (roadshows, research coverage, etc.)
REYL & Cie structures, arranges and leads private placements of loans and bonds starting from EUR/USD 20m, working with its international distribution network of trusted credit-oriented alternative asset managers, direct-lending funds, banks and family offices.
REYL & Cie provides financial advice for the restructuring of existing debt and equity capital in the context of out-of-court transactions. The Corporate Finance team also implements defensive strategies to keep businesses shielded from aggressive creditors while implementing a financial and industrial restructuring.
Private Equity / Club Deals / Art Finance
REYL & Cie identifies growth-oriented businesses with high quality management teams and assists them in their capital raising efforts.
In the art space, through Griffin Art Partners, a securitisation platform established in a joint-venture with art advisory firm Link Management, REYL & Cie provides limited recourse art financing solutions to private collectors and art professionals.
