Sooner or later most energy companies that wish to grow need to seek equity or debt capital to realize their plans.  Whether these companies are private or public, the need for capital to fuel growth is omnipresent.

To address the capital formation needs of upstream, midstream and downstream companies, Hunter Stuart has formed an association with Houston-based FINRA brokerage firm Alvarado Energy Advisors.

The Principal of Alvarado Energy Advisors is investment banker John Alvarado.  John brings tremendous experience in the disciplines of investment banking, business development, project management, risk management, deal structuring, and negotiation to the task of capital formation.  Prior to founding Alvarado Energy Advisors, John was the Managing Director of Energy Related Corporate Finance with the investment banking division of The Seaport Group based in New York and Houston.  This position put him in contact with many sophisticated institutional investors that made private placements of debt and equity into a variety of energy companies.  John has the ability to quickly understand the capital needs of a company, design the optimal solution, and secure capital on the best possible terms from his network of institutional investors.​

Alvarado Energy Advisors offers corporate advisory, private debt and equity placement, M&A, and restructuring advisory services.  Forms of capital include private debt, 1st/2nd lien debt, high yield debt, mezzanine debt, private equity, growth capital, and institutional capital.  Deal types include private placements, recapitalization, acquiistions, project finance, start-ups, leveraged or management buyouts, debtor-in-possession financing, and rescue financing.   Our focus for investment is on upstream companies that need capital for acquisitions or expansion through the drill bit, and energy infrastructure projects such as refinery expansions, product terminals, pipelines and processing facilities.  The range of capital formation that we are interested in is $25 to $300 million.

​Alvarado Energy Advisors LLC is an independent investment banking advisory firm.  All securities ae offered through Independent Investment Bankers Corp. an Austin, Texas based Broker Dealer and FINRA/SIPC member.  Alvarado Energy Advisors LLC is not “affiliated” with Independent Investment Bankers Corp.
