The Handbook of Financing Growth, Second Edition is a comprehensive guide for emerging growth and middle market companies, and their leaders and advisors, on financing strategies, sources and transactions. Written by practitioners and updated in full, this valuable resource presents the tools needed to analyze and determine the financing strategy with a holistic approach in the context of the overall strategic plan. This Second Edition includes a detailed discussion of positioning the business for value creation before the transaction and how the financing strategy fits into the overall plan for growing, raising capital or creating an exit. The authors also address buyouts and recapitalizations as two alternatives to create shareholder liquidity and potentially finance future growth, and provide a new chapter on M&A. Financing types and funding sources are reviewed, and new case studies highlight financing alternatives and growth equity.
