Debt Advisory Services Group

Capstone Headwaters boasts a highly active Debt Advisory Group that is focused exclusively on arranging mid-market debt financing.  Our clients consist of founder/family-held businesses and sponsor-backed companies seeking debt capital for organic growth, acquisitions, dividend recapitalizations and refinancings. The team consists of career-dedicated credit professionals that help clients navigate through the ever-changing and increasingly complex private debt capital markets. This team works closely with clients to assess and optimize their debt structures and provide access to our vast network of lenders across multiple product categories to secure the best long-term partners for the business.   


  • First-lien/senior secured loans
  • Second-/split-lien facilities

  • Structured equity capital. 

The Debt Advisory Group has developed established relationships with over 300 institutional lenders across the credit universe, including commercial banks, finance companies, credit opportunity funds, business development companies (BDCs), insurance companies, private debt funds, and family offices. The firm’s deep credit experience, transaction volume, and lender relationships allow us to deliver tailored debt solutions and provide real-time market intelligence on current market terms, lending trends, and structural alternatives. 


Our highly efficient process is designed to funnel multiple lenders through a competitive marketing process that optimizes interest rates, lending terms, speed to close, and certainty of financing while minimizing the burden on management/sponsors.  Once engaged, we manage all aspects of the capital-raising process from initial diligence through final closing and funding, including:

  • Drafting of offering materials
  • Preparing financing data and projection models
  • Preparing the management team for lender presentations
  • Securing and negotiating loan proposals
  • Coordinating the lender diligence process
  • Negotiating key terms of credit agreements and financial covenants

Given the breadth of the firm’s industry practice teams, we work closely with our Industry specialists to develop a credit thesis that best positions our clients in the credit marketplace and elicits the strongest interest from prospective lenders.
