The smart way to manage DCM Bond Prospectus production

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.

If you are responsible for the preparation of DCM Bond Prospectus’, and have encountered any of the challenges mentioned above, we invite you to take a look at Scribestar. We can share with you the benefits our clients enjoy, who include leading global investment banks and law firms, from managing their DCM document production in a smarter, more efficient way.

Triple Point – Driving Value through Tech Innovation

Triple Point Investment Management is an innovative investment management company offering strategies across a hugely varied range of sectors and asset classes. It aims to deliver not just financial return but real value to investors.

The company launched a new real estate investment fund on the London Stock Exchange back in August 2017. Since then, the company has gone through two further rounds of fundraising.  Triple Point Partner and General Counsel, Justin Hubble, saw that when working on the first two Prospectuses, there were a lot of inefficiencies in the process.  He opted to introduce Scribestar to streamline the drafting of the latest Prospectus, and drive business efficiencies using the latest technologies.

As a result, the Triple Point team quickly found that this was a tool that would allow them to collaborate on one, evolving online document – completely eliminating  version control issues.  Advantage benefits were derived from the ease of making and reviewing new edits, and the automated typesetting feature which reflowed amendments, and kept  the document in-line with London Stock Exchange requirements.

“I’d encourage all Law Firms to take a look at the platform,” says Justin, having seen the big-time saving for the Lawyers on this  transaction, who would otherwise regularly be chasing a huge amount of comments.” It materially improved WIP recovery ratios for the lawyers in this transaction based on a direct comparison to previous raises where Scribestar was not used”

“I’d use Scribestar all day long on every major collaborative project we work on. It would be great to see it in use as the de-facto platform for all companies fundraising on the London Stock Exchange.”
