Wholesaling and transport SME

BRI Ferrier advised a small-to-medium-sized enterprise (SME) in the wholesaling and transport industry in western Queensland and the Northern Territory. We advised on pricing, market forecasts and expectations. We also restructured the company's operations. This had a positive long-term financial impact on the business.

Perth hi-fi store group

BRI Ferrier was engaged informally to restructure a well-known group of Perth hi-fi stores that was experiencing a cash flow crisis. We implemented a turnaround strategy and mentored the director of the business. The group continues to trade as a profitable going concern.

Riga Commercial Bank

BRI Ferrier was engaged as an advisor to the administrator of Riga Commercial Bank, Latvia's fifth largest bank, which was forced to close due to heavy losses on Russian securities. We assisted with successfully restructuring the bank, which was helped by financing from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and other international sources. The bank maintained its licence and was renamed First Commercial Bank of Latvia.

Family office – offshore pre-IPO private placement

BRI Ferrier assisted a family office with negotiations and due diligence for an offshore pre-IPO private placement issued by a Peoples Republic of China (PRC) airline. The airline sought to raise approximately US$200 million from the private placement. It also sought to launch an IPO on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong. The private placement involved purchasing an exchangeable bond from a Hong Kong-based airline, the shares of which were exchanged with the shares of the PRC airline company upon its IPO.
