PNC Equipment Finance’s (PNCEF) Structured Finance Solutions group provides strategic services and creative solutions to large corporations, midsize companies, project developers and government entities. The in-house group, unique within the equipment finance industry, specializes in advising, structuring and arranging large asset–based transactions for investors, issuers, lessees and project sponsors. Our core business is financing fixed assets while focusing on tax and balance sheet–oriented transactions within the energy, transportation, manufacturing, media, municipal and infrastructure sectors.
PNC Equipment Finance is a member of The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc., one of the largest, best capitalized and best regarded financial services companies in the country with more than $300 billion in assets and over 50,0000 employees. PNC offers solutions to businesses throughout the United States with expanded reach in Canada. For more than 160 years, PNC has navigated a steady course while growing in size, sophistication and service.
Utilizing a team approach, our professionals work closely with you to fully understand your unique requirements and parameters.
Team members then bring to bear tax, accounting, legal, economic modeling and distribution skills to identify and resolve critical issues during the preliminary due diligence phase of the transaction. As a result, solutions are developed early in the process, or alternative structural enhancements are evaluated, so as to maximize benefits, mitigate risks and minimize costs. Where appropriate, the team will liaise with the client’s outside legal counsel, independent auditor and/or other consultants, as well as advise and assist during the negotiation and documentation
phase of the financing.
Our transactions, some of which are “first-of-their-kind,” often produce enhanced economic returns for investors, and lower the overall financing costs for issuers, in a manner consistent with the clients’ commercial, tax, accounting and risk management objectives.
As part of one of the largest bank-owned equipment finance companies in the United States, the Structured Finance Solutions group is able to access specialized expertise from other business segments, including capital markets, managed tax oriented funds, equipment and residual expertise and credit due-diligence, while retaining maximum flexibility with respect to funding sources. This innovative approach enhances currently utilized financing structures and enables the team to continue to develop and close innovative transactions.
Each PNCEF Structured Finance Solutions team member has more than 20 years of experience and a deep understanding of the quantitative, legal, tax, accounting, regulatory and risk management issues that can arise in complex structured financings.
By addressing all of these issues at the inception of each transaction, the team’s approach to due-diligence has established greater certainty of closure for its clients. The team has also worked closely on numerous transactions with major accounting firms, nationally recognized tax and legal counsel, leading appraisal and independent engineering firms, and other prominent service providers, resulting in a proven track record of successfully closed financings across a wide spectrum of industry sectors.
