- Private Equity
DWH assists middle-market companies in sourcing private equity (common stock, preferred stock, convertible securities), senior and subordinated debt, as well as term loans, cash flow and asset-based financing facilities. We help our clients achieve their objectives for funding business growth, facilitating distributions to shareholders, or affecting acquisitions and management buyouts.
DWH professionals distinguish themselves by offering hands-on transaction management by senior professionals, thorough preparation in advance of memorandums, a customized approach to developing a tailored marketing strategy for the transaction, and strong structuring skills to engineer the optimum transaction.

DWH also offers financial advisory and placement services for private companies in connection with senior credit facilities, mezzanine and second-lien debt, recapitalizations, acquisitions, refinancing, and restructurings. In addition, our professionals have extensive experience negotiating the key terms of debt agreements – including those involving financial covenants, inter-creditor/subordination provisions, prepayment structures, warrant and equity co-investment provisions, principal amortization terms, priority debt baskets, and other critical terms.
