Equity Financing – It is in our core DNA at Union Gaming to provide equity capital market solutions to our issuer clients. Our specialty distribution teams and relationships with decision makers in the hedge fund, private equity, mutual fund, and sovereign wealth fund communities makes us one of the most effective distribution platforms for gaming related issuances. Our global distribution allows our teams to effectively target and complete transactions in rapidly changing market environments.

Debt Financing – We understand the importance of a market expert when it comes to debt financing. Our experience as an arranger or documentation agent aligns us perfectly with our issuer clients as that industry stamp of credibility when it comes to executing a transaction. Backed by a market leading global research team, we are well positioned across the global high yield and loan markets.

Private Placement – We have one of the industry’s most effective global distribution platforms for private placements, including relationships with hedge funds, private equity funds, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, and family offices. This broad distribution allows our private placement professionals to structure, negotiate, and rapidly complete private transactions for our clients.
