Services: confidential expertise and insight offered in special situations
Endeavour is an independent advisory firm. This means we have no conflicts of interest or preference. We can therefore act for companies or financial institutions in what can be often high-tension and stressful environments for all parties involved. We can assist both on a disclosed or non-disclosed basis in providing impartial advice on handling sensitive negotiations with a company’s creditor groups.
The Endeavour team offers substantial experience both in acquisition and disposal scenarios for distressed assets. In the majority of cases, the asset is leveraged and the team’s financial advisory skills are complimentary to resolve and find an equitable solution to maximise the value to our clients.
Having financed iron ore, chromite, mineral sands, uranium, molybdenum, lithium and cobalt (potash and phosphate in progress) projects around the world, Endeavour has a strong understanding of what it takes to finance non-exchange traded commodity projects. Coupled with our extensive experience in advising and arranging structured and project financing for base metals companies and their projects, the team therefore can offer companies knowledge and expertise on offtake solicitation, marketing to counterparties (traders, strategic partners, end-users) and contract negotiation.
As part of the business advisory service, Endeavour retains technically-qualified team members who offer clients impartial and expert advice on projects as they are being progressed through pre-feasibility and feasibility stages. With first-hand operational knowledge as well as current awareness of mining development and capital markets, Endeavour’s mining engineers, geologists and cash flow modellers can provide important and confidential insights, especially into whether the studies are ‘bankable’. This can extend to project valuations, development routes, phased development strategies, and analysis of real versus perceived risks.
