My division within Lehman Brothers International(Debt Capital Markets/Financial Institution Group) will try to help the client to raise money by selling debt or equity securities to investors. Our objective is that of determining the optimal placement strategy to be used by BES, and in order to do that we started our analysis with a comprehensive understanding of the current volatile market conditions, key aspect for a successful transaction.
