“Acquisition Financing,” or the funding of capital for the purpose of acquiring a target company, is a growing specialty area among bank lending attorneys. While a catchy phrase, it can be a bit of a misnomer, in that different attorneys may represent providers of different levels of a company’s capital structure on any one acquisition. Nonetheless, structuring a successful acquisition financing, particularly in the middle-market, can be daunting and demanding, no matter an attorney’s role. In light of the increased prominence of alternative sources of capital available for buyers, this article will give a brief overview of some of the most common acquisition financing sources used in the market since the credit crunch, and strategies attorneys can utilize in structuring financings in today’s dynamic lending world.
