Beyond the completion of a transaction, Trident Capital often continues to stay aligned with our client’s objectives by assisting in their strategy deployment and development through continuing corporate advisory services and non-executive director roles and will usually support these objectives by taking long term equity escrow positions.

Providing bespoke corporate advice on appropriate strategies, structures, fundraising options, commercial negotiations, board composition and corporate secretarial support.

Assisting Managing Regulatory Requirements and Approvals

Trident has vast experience working with stock exchanges and corporate regulators to navigate the ever changing and complicated provisions that apply to a variety of transactions. With the unique relationship with Price Sierakowski corporate lawyers the Trident team’s extensive expertise consistently obtains the approvals and meets the requirements necessary.

Restructuring and Recapitalisation of Companies

Market conditions and opportunity sometimes dictate that the best means for a project to achieve public listing on the ASX is through a reverse takeover (RTO) of a listed company. Our strong relationships within the insolvency profession enables Trident to identify distressed ASX listed companies and be preferred as the party approved to restructure, recapitalise and relist that entity.

In addition, Trident Capital has guided many distressed companies through restructuring mechanisms focused on returning value to shareholders.

Advice on Mergers and Acquisitions

Deep merger and acquisition experience is grounded in being regarded as one of the leading corporate advisers for completing RTOs on the ASX over the last 20 years, which has included both domestic and international project acquisitions. Trident through its close affiliation with Price Sierakowski Corporate has extensive experience assisting companies navigating the highly regulated legal provisions and offer a comprehensive approach to obtaining the commercial outcomes sought. Services offered include:

  • Deal origination
  • Determining strategic options and investments
  • Advising on structuring and pricing the transaction
  • Negotiation and execution
  • Managing due diligence, shareholder and regulatory approval process

Board and Management Guidance

Appropriately balanced and independent boards that operate efficiently with management are often a difficult journey from private to public transitions or connected with M&A transactions. Trident Capital can assist companies to source appropriate directors and produce compliance platforms for effective operations of boards and regulatory obligations.
