The smart way to manage DCM Bond Prospectus production
25 Feb 2019
If you are involved in Debt Capital Markets (DCM), providing legal or financial advice to corporate issuers on the raising of debt, refinancing of existing debt, or restructuring of existing debt, then you will be well aware of the challenges of the process. There’s the expectations and involvement of multiple stakeholders to manage, who are all working towards fast deal turnaround times, which can sometimes be days rather than weeks or months – and due to the DCM tending to be a higher-volume, lower-margin business than ECM, keeping an eye on costs and fees is all the more critical.
These are the very challenges that Scribestar set out to solve. Scribestar is an online platform focused on simplifying the drafting and production of complex legal documents for debt and equity capital market transactions.
Accessing Scribestar’s secure cloud-based system, which is available 24/7, multiple authorised users can work in a controlled, permission-based professional platform, to edit, review and approve a single source of the Bond Prospectus. This helps streamline the drafting process, which along with automated mark-up, reporting and tracking, creates significant time efficiencies and reduces risks, which can creep in through version control issues.
When it comes to the complex task of verification fact checking and regulatory checklisting, Scribestar automates the process to help achieve unparalleled levels of speed, accuracy and control in the production of compliant documents.
We know last minute changes to a Bond Prospectus are common and this can often lead to fraught exchanges with financial printers, as deal team members work tirelessly to ensure submission deadlines are met. But these pressures are eradicated with Scribestar. In Scribestar, updates are extremely easy to make to print-ready files, which means you have improved control over the process and can make edits to the Prospectus right up to the deadline.
