Capital Solutions

Intelligence. Capital. Operations.

Tiger serves the investment community as a powerful source of market intelligence and minority capital, as well as managers of operations in transition. We partner with private equity and investment bankers to evaluate, invest in and monetize both ongoing and distressed investments, most often within the context of mergers, acquisitions, downsizings and corporate divestitures.

By combining our deep understanding of collateral values with our knowledge of how to maximize underperforming assets in an investment, we allow our investment partners to focus on, and bid on, only the more profitable elements of a targeted acquisition or current holding. Asset categories within our practice include all consumer goods, industrial M&E, real estate and intellectual property.

Market Intelligence

Tiger conducts formal asset appraisals totalling $30 billion in value every year. Leveraging our proprietary database and field staff of over 100 asset specialists, we help asset-based lenders, businesses and investors understand the true, underlying value of assets based on precise liquidation methodologies.

For our investment partners, we quickly help them understand the liquidation value of an asset grouping, thereby allowing them to pinpoint their leverage and structure their debt on the inherent value of their assets. Because we value assets based on our real-world liquidation experience, our orderly and forced liquidation values take into account far more than sales metrics and operating expenses. Tiger quantifies the inherent risks of the business being examined – both as a divestiture and as an on-going concern.

EARLY ACCESS TO OPPORTUNITIES

We are on the street everyday and frequently know of potential acquisition or disposition targets at very early stages. This is particularly true of businesses that are either distressed or in transition. Our partners benefit from acting on this early intelligence before it reaches others’ pipelines.

Financing and Investments

Debt Financing

Tiger shares in the risk of transactions by providing debt financing, usually in a second or minority position.

Because of our storied liquidation history and disposition infrastructure, we are frequently able to place higher values, and advance rates, on underperforming or surplus assets than traditional investors.

Of greater importance, Tiger will underwrite the risk of these assets.

We will provide junior secured Tranche B, Pari-Passu or Mezzanine financing, as well as Bridge Loans, Term Loans, and Collateral Guarantees to secure surplus assets, facilitate turnarounds, use as working capital, or simply mitigate risk.

Capital Investments

Our philosophy is grounded in one, simple fact: we don’t have clients, we have partners.

Whether our partners are looking to facilitate a merger, acquisition, downsizing or divestiture, we stand ready to deliver intelligent and innovative solutions, as well as Equity Capital and divestiture expertise, as part of an acquisition strategy.

Our willingness to purchase and monetize the least attractive assets in a holding or acquisition allows our partners to focus on, and bid on, only the more profitable elements of an asset package, thereby allowing our partners to reduce their capital outlay and increase their acquisition bids.

At any given time, Tiger can bring tens of millions of dollars, if not more, into a single transaction to purchase and monetize the unwanted assets in our partners’ portfolio.

Transitional Operations

Leveraging annual asset dispositions of up to $1 billion, Tiger professionals know how to maximize the least performing assets in an investment. Our professionals have served as workout professionals, receivers, trustees and chief restructuring officers on many of the largest transactions in recent history.

Using innovative sales techniques, we purge surplus retail and wholesale inventory, either at the store level or through our exclusive network of secondary wholesale buyers, mitigate or exit lease liabilities, and sell-down surplus machinery, equipment and intellectual property via live and online auctions, sealed bid offerings or negotiated sales.

AUGMENTATION

Should a retail operation need fresh goods to continue running through a transition, our wholesale practice leverages a global network of opportunistic sellers to acquire fill-in inventory at extremely favorable terms. Our wholesale practice purchases and sells merchandise covering all major consumer categories and can structure transactions on a fee, guarantee or equity basis.

UNDERWRITING RISK

When assuming the risk on unwanted assets, Tiger will guarantee a predetermined financial result and can, at a moment’s notice, leverage our substantial capital to help facilitate acquisitions, turnarounds, restructurings or orderly sales.
