FalkenSteg adds financing in critical situations to range of services

FRANKFURT AM MAIN, GERMANY (7 January 2020) – As the year gets underway, consulting firm FalkenSteg is strategically expanding its range of services to include debt advisory solutions. This unit will be headed up by Jens von Loos, who has joined FalkenSteg from KPMG. “Corporate finance is becoming increasingly complex and traditional banks are not always the first solution. As a result, we see substantial demand for advisory services among business owners and investment companies, who are looking for guidance on the full range of finance-related matters that occur throughout the life of their business. We’re now in a stronger position to meet those needs”, explains FalkenSteg managing partner Tillmann Peeters. This additional service will complement the firm’s existing key business segments (corporate finance (M&A), restructuring, insolvency consulting and real estate).

Jens von Loos is a university-trained business administration professional who has specialised in corporate finance and financial consulting for over fifteen years. Before making the switch to FalkenSteg, he worked in the debt-advisory field at consulting firm KPMG and investment bank Houlihan Lokey. In addition, the team will be joined by Mathias Famulla, who also formerly worked in debt advisory at KPMG. “With Jens von Loos and Mathias Famulla now on board, we’ve been able to bolster our ranks with two proven experts in this field of business. They bring many years of financial-industry experience, are all about delivering creative finance solutions and will be perfectly suited to life at FalkenSteg thanks to their hands-on mentality. The new unit is a further step towards giving businesses and investment companies more opportunities for action in critical situations”, Peeters explains.

The services will help to meet financing needs in areas such as growth capital, acquisition financing, refinancing, amend to extend and recapitalisations. “We’ll be advising companies and investors on matters such as renegotiating covenants, covering liquidity shortfalls and restructuring liabilities. Our clients will receive well-structured guidance throughout the financing process, including identifying financing targets, communicating with financing partners and negotiating term sheets and documentation”, von Loos says.

As an independent financial advisor, FalkenSteg can consider the full range of possible financing methods and interface with German and international financing partners, including commercial banks, debt funds and asset finance providers. “I’m look forward to this fresh challenge of growing the new business unit and helping to enhance this strategic focus. Debt advisory is the perfect complement to FalkenSteg’s existing range of services,”, von Loos adds.
