How they seal the deal: capital-raising solutions from BDO Capital
Not all investment houses work the same. Some firms only offer service for raising equity or debt capital, while others help clients in underwriting and advising on security issues, mergers and acquisitions, and trading on capital markets. Other big investment banks engage in large-scale projects, assisting their business partners to pitch sales to government branches and public sector initiatives.
With all these diverse services, it’s always important for a company to find the right investment partner that can provide solutions for its business needs.
BDO Capital, the investment banking arm of BDO, is the country’s leading expert in capital management. With close to Php1.7 trillion worth of deals from 2016-2018, it remains the trusted capital investment partner of top private corporations and government-backed initiatives. It serves a wide range of clientele from small to large corporate entities.
BDO Capital is the top investment house in the Philippines today, awarded with international and local recognitions for the past 10 years — a testimony to its continued dominance in the Philippine investment banking industry.
BDO Capital has capital strength and stability through strong parent company support from SM and BDO, the Philippines’ largest mall owner/operator and the largest bank, respectively. Its wide experience in various industries has enabled it to capture major deals in the market, with the assistance of its parent bank’s relationship managers.
BDO is a most sought-after “brand name” and its inclusion in a deal provides comfort and confidence not only to issuers and borrowers but to other arrangers and lenders, as well.
BDO Capital tailors fund-raising solutions according to your company’s specific needs
BDO Capital is a one-stop-shop investment house, allowing it to cover all aspects of a deal: from origination, structuring and execution through BDO Capital; funding through the parent Bank (Corporate Banking, Commercial Banking, Trust or Treasury) and affiliates BDO Private Bank and BDO Leasing; fiduciary roles (trusteeship, loan agency, registry, paying agency, etc.) through BDO Unibank’s Trust and Investments Group; secondary market trading through affiliated brokerage houses and the Bank’s Treasury Group; and insurance services through the Bank’s insurance subsidiary.
Not all investment houses can offer all these services. Clients can therefore enjoy the benefits of saving costs and dispense with the need to deal with several parties to a transaction requiring some or all these services.
BDO Capital’s expertise not only lies on the origination and execution of deals, but also on its knowledge of the industry where a particular client is operating in. In this way, the needs of clients can be carefully assessed, and the optimal financing structure can thus be recommended.
For the last several years, BDO Capital has been heavily involved in raising financing for the power and energy, infrastructure (airport, toll roads and water), real estate, integrated hotel, resort and entertainment, food and beverage, and transportation sectors, among others.
BDO Capital continuously innovates equity- and debt-financing transactions for its clients, carefully structuring deals that will offer the best alternative to both its issuer and investor clients.
In 2018, amidst a challenging financial environment characterized by highly volatile equities market, rising interest rates and significantly fewer deals in the capital markets, BDO Capital successfully sustained its industry leadership position participating (as lead or in partnership with other financial institutions) in 11 of 14 deals offered to the public: 9 of 10 non-bank corporate bond issuances and 2 of 4 equity offering (excluding bank stock rights offerings). It also closed the largest private-sector syndicated loan deal for the same year.
Due to its strong linkages with other local and international investment houses, issuers/borrowers are assured of wide distribution of their securities offerings to both individual and corporate clients compared to other non-bank-affiliated houses which have limited distribution networks. Its strong distribution capability comes from SM’s expansive network of investors, clients, and suppliers, and BDO’s Trust, Treasury, and Private Bank subsidiaries, along with its 1,300 branches nationwide.
Guided by BDO’s “out-of-the-box” thinking principle, BDO Capital adapts to the uniqueness of each of its clients, helping it adjust to the constantly changing market landscape. It provides solutions to address the needs of different businesses, no matter how complex.
