Approach & Differentiation

Vesta was seeking an equity partner to facilitate the refinancing of expensive junior debt. Vector used the opportunity to propose a senior debt security which was less dilutive than the contemplated equity raise. With the help of management, we designed an accommodative security that matched Vesta’s complex balance sheet needs.
