Group Overview: The Asset Based & Transitional Finance Group ("ABTF") is responsible for originating, structuring and syndicating corporate finance transactions for non-investment grade companies and specializes in debt financings for restructurings/turnarounds, bankruptcies, leveraged/management buyouts and asset based loans ("ABL"). ABTF professionals directly advise the senior management of Citi's corporate clients on debt financing and capital structure solutions. ABTF further serves these clients by committing capital to the financing transactions. ABTF directly manages the loan portfolio comprised of these capital commitments. Nature of Business:
ABLs consist of highly structured secured revolving lines of credit and term loans for non-investment grade clients with availability governed by the liquidation value of the assets securing the facilities
These facilities meet an array of corporate finance needs including general corporate purposes, cyclical, industrial or seasonal downturns, acquisitions and recapitalizations
ABLs pair easily with funded debt such as high yield bonds and term loans, and typically sit at the top of a company's capital structure
The transitional finance side of the business focuses on capital structure solutions for clients in transition, e.g. rescue finance, debtor-in-possession, exit financing
The group's revenue stream is generated through fees earned by structuring/arranging financing transactions for its clients, upfront fees paid on Citi's loan commitments, and interest paid on the group's loan portfolio
