Emerge Capital has advised on more than $10 billion in transactions across Asia and Europe.  We provide our clients with independent corporate finance services, coupled with full service transaction support, to ensure they successfully achieve their growth or divestment objectives.

+ Transaction Strategy

Emerge Capital provides real estate investors and developers with strategic advice and planning for both acquisitions and divestments based on detailed analysis of the client's investment objectives and the state of the market. Transaction strategies can include an extensive review of a client's existing real estate portfolio, their objectives for a proposed transaction, and a review of the state of the market. The strategy and recommendations are then tested against investment guidelines to ensure future transactions are aligned to strategy.

Emerge Capital recently developed a transaction strategy for an Australian developer looking to enter the Chinese retirement real estate industry.

+ Acquisitions

Emerge Capital acts on behalf of clients to secure acquisition opportunities at a corporate merger and acquisitions level, through to portfolio and individual asset level acquisitions. This process typically starts with developing an investment brief that is consistent with the client’s acquisition strategy. Emerge Capital then leverages its extensive network to identify acquisition opportunities, both on and off-market. Once specific acquisition targets have been confirmed, Emerge Capital can manage the entire acquisition process on behalf of the client including financial and market analysis, counter party negotiations and preparing internal investment papers. When providing this service to offshore capital, emphasis is placed on educating the client on the opportunity set and addressing any local banking or FIRB requirements, drawing on our local market intelligence.

Emerge Capital recently acted as the financial advisor to a Chinese state owned enterprise on a $100m M&A transaction for a real estate investment.

+ Divestments

Emerge Capital acts on behalf of corporates, real estate owners and developers to divest subsidiaries, assets and/or whole portfolios. This can be done independently or through collaboration with agents. Prior to the sale process, Emerge Capital provides clients with divestment options and conducts financial and market analysis to ensure the pricing, timing and the universe of potential acquirers is optimised. Emerge Capital can then manage the full sale process including preparing all of the sale documentation, and counterparty negotiations to successfully divest the asset.

Emerge Capital recently advised an ASX 50 property developer on the divestment of a $400m hotel development asset. Emerge Capital also recently advised an Australian regional airport on its divestment strategy and options.

+ Complex Bid Management

Emerge Capital acts on behalf of clients to either manage or assist on major publicly tendered urban and outer urban development opportunities, including major urban renewal projects. This process usually starts with a detailed bid strategy due to the scale and cost of bidding for these types of projects. Emerge Capital can lead and coordinate the preparation of the bid, including market research, feasibility analysis, master planning, bid submission and providing capital solutions.

Emerge Capital advised a major property developer on their bid to secure the development rights for an integrated resort in Australia. Emerge Capital advised on the overall bid strategy to the domestic government as well as international gaming operators.

+ EOI Divestment Shortlisting

Emerge Capital advises asset vendors and developers on EOI shortlisting for competitive divestment processes. Our deep relationships with the international wholesale capital markets provide Emerge Capital with current insights to provide targeted international prequalified capital shortlists to vendors to undertake short-track competitive campaigns. This allows vendors to move quickly and minimise counterparty settlement risk, whilst still achieving competitive market pricing.

+ Wholesale Capital Raising

Emerge Capital acts on behalf of real estate companies to raise wholesale capital at both a corporate and project level. To drive capital efficiency, we initially work with our clients to determine the right amount and mix of capital required. We then develop the appropriate investment collaterals and use our extensive capital relationships to ensure the widest audience of potential investors is targeted. Emerge Capital manages the full capital raising process including the preparation of all modelling, documentation and marketing collaterals. Our institutional capital relationships throughout Asia, from sovereign wealth funds through to life companies, insurers, pension funds and REITS place us in a unique position to source capital effectively for our clients.

+ Development and Asset Management

Emerge Capital’s Development and Asset Management services include feasibility analysis, appointment and management of contracts, project delivery advice and services. We support and guide our clients through all phases of the development process including development due diligence, project delivery and project governance. Our ongoing asset management team provides asset management services from a value driven perspective where investment in assets is directly correlated, maintaining or increasing asset value.
