The Pricoa Capital Group Guide to Senior Debt Capital

01.11.18

Just as it sounds, senior debt capital assumes priority over other forms of capital and is generally repaid first. It can be secured or unsecured, asset-based or cash flow-based, depending on the size and strength of a company. The term (short or long) for senior debt capital will be dictated based on the nature of the funding need and the company’s credit quality. Senior debt capital is also available from multiple lending markets.

For most companies that take on leverage, the first, and often only, debt they will raise is senior debt capital. If a company plans to substantially increase in scale and is in need of external capital, utilising senior debt capital is the most affordable, flexible and effective way for them to improve the growth rate of their company, while maintaining control. 

In addition to being the most cost-effective type of capital, companies often choose senior debt for the variety of advantages it offers over other forms of capital. For example, senior debt capital is versatile; it can be used for short-term purposes, such as day-to-day operations, or it can be used for longer-term purposes, like acquisitions or significant liquidity events.

Additionally, senior debt covenants may feel onerous at times, but they can actually be useful to both the lender and borrower, such as helping a company detect financial challenges before a more serious issue emerges.
