At TVI, we take the initiative on the corporate finance forefront and structure transactions that assist our clients in focusing their resources on materializing their vision and achieving expected results.
Being either an entrepreneurship seeking capital for the commercialization of a breakthrough product/service or a well-established corporation aiming at the expansion of production capacity and market penetration alike, it is extremely vital to opt for the right financial strategy. We, therefore, deploy our expertise and experience in the field to advise our clients on determining each and every stage of development, for which what transactions to take place and how they should be structured, also simultaneously which, when, and how relevant parties should be engaged effectively and efficiently.
Our skill sets practicably allow us to identify and appropriately evaluate clients’ unexcavated competitive advantages and/or justifiable growth potential which sometimes they themselves encounter difficulties proving to the market. As a consequence, we step in to assist our clients to stand out from the crowd in the eyes of customers as well as prospective investors and creditors.
As one might expect, restructuring is summoned when an enterprise finds itself in financially distressed circumstances. It is true to a majority of cases but not all. The restructuring service that TVI offers, apart from addressing such situational needs, includes as well the reorganization required to transform profit-making companies where resources optimization is still absent or the vision of its owners and management is far to be matched by its current magnitude and growth.
Not just delivering one-off financial advisory service that our clients may well find elsewhere, TVI aims at building a long-term partnering relationship by working hand in hand with the clients to resolve their various operational issues at management level both prior to and after restructuring, thereby developing their business and creating enduring value for shareholders.
TVI’s management consultancy encompasses strategic and operations management as well as risk management. Given our vast network of internationally acclaimed professionals covering a wide diversity of industries, the job of sourcing competent personnel and advising clients on suitable recruitment and appointment or engaging their resourceful consultation are what we have taken pride in.
Together with the clients, we devise and actively participate in the implementation of their business plans for restructuring in sense of operation coordination, while causing the positive involvement of credit providers for optimized leverage structure as deemed necessary, and contemporaneously facilitating access to capital markets for funding. With such a close-circuit package of service in place, we make sure as well that associated risks are properly addressed to preserve at all times the continuity, stability, and sustainable growth for our clients’ business.
During harsh time of the economy, such as the one persevering for the past several years, credit squeeze, or an unacceptably high cost of debt capital if any offered, might stand too formidable an obstacle for enterprises, particularly small and medium ones, to overcome and get their operations back on track.
In resistance to the threatening dissolution, such small and medium enterprises might find a merger with another one of similar magnitude a hope for survival; or less favorable being merged into a much larger corporation by which ownership and control shall get materially diluted. The latter, if circumstances need be, might result in an end to a previously independent brand name, which in most cases inflicts sentimental disillusionment onto the former owners, especially those to whom such businesses got passed on as a family legacy.
At TVI, we offer a much more balanced solution called “reverse merger”, whereby the company in subject matter can raise capital overseas via publicly listed equity-based instruments while enabling the founders or their heirs/heiresses to retain control over the direction and overall strategy of the post-merger entity relatively regardless of the dilution. In later stages of the fund raising, the company – assisted by TVI – may find it much easier to obtain credits internationally at low costs, thanks to the initial M&A stepping stone.
This operation is no stranger to fully-fledged financial markets, but relatively new to emerging economies including Vietnam. For each and every transaction as such to reach success stage, an uninterrupted “pipeline” must be meticulously assembled and professionally maintained, all of which in a timely manner. Standing at the pivot of the scheme, TVI conducts due diligence, structures and undertakes to duly engage relevant parties, including but not limited to auditors, legal counsels, transfer agents, and other third-party advisors, in order to ascertain that the proper and complete documentation is readily available to competent regulatory bodies as well as prospective investors.
The internationally renowned “Employment-Based Immigration: Fifth Preference” (EB-5) offered by the US Government is a good and exotic way for high net-worth individuals to invest in the world’s most liberated market and obtain the Green Card simultaneously. There are undeniably several enterprises in Vietnam specializing in EB-5 consultancy service though, what we do at TVI regarding this sector indeed differentiates us from the rest of the market.
Currently, the only EB-5 platform investors get offered by conventional consultants in Vietnam is through pooled investments in approved Regional Centers (RC) which has gradually posed quite a number of disadvantages. Given our US-based partners in RC development and an army of EB-5-specialized legal counselors, TVI admittedly does provide RC-based advisory service; but does not solely rely on this mechanism to help sole the mathematics of migration by investments. Instead, our international operations in Mergers & Acquisitions and Direct Investments allow us to conveniently structure US-oriented direct investments that perfectly fit EB-5 requirements. This service of ours not only significantly reduces the risk of default borne by RC-based projects by preserving the independence of each investor from one another but also make sure their investments get recouped and continue to generate profits for their family’s good life in the US after the green cards get granted.
