As part of the One Square Group, One Square Financial Engineers supports medium-sized companies in all financing issues relating to debt and equity. The focus is particularly on growth-oriented companies that have provided the „proof of concept“. In close consultation with the client, One Square Financial Engineers develops the appropriate capital structure and financing strategy. Based on a detailed analysis, a business plan suitable for the capital market is drawn up as the basis for a financing instrument structured to meet individual needs.

Concrete financing occasions can be, for example, growth financing or the refinancing of an existing bond.

The support from structuring to issuance is provided from a single source and at a performance-based fixed price for all services including documentation and marketing.

Fairness Opinion 

The demands on decision-makers in advisory and supervisory boards in large, often international transactions have grown massively in recent years. At the same time, the tolerance for errors has steadily decreased and decision-makers have a high level of personal responsibility and liability.

In these situations, One Square supports with independent, objective expert opinions and assessments of the upcoming decisions and provides the mandate holders with concrete recommendations for action. One Square has both the seniority and experience – all MDs and senior advisors have worked for major international investment banks or consulting firms – as well as the expertise and resources for the necessary analyses and assessments.
