In order to qualify for direct funding consideration, please ensure the following minimum guidelines are adhered to:
1. Minimums: $100 Million+ USD in combined equity and debt ask for funding. 2. Industry: Although we are generally industry agnostic, where the business is located and the market segment being targeted are pivotal to the viability of the deal. 3. Funds: Principal team must be capable of covering the closing costs of the deal for items such as due diligence costs, legal costs, structuring, etc. 4. Seed Capital: The business or project must have initial capital invested that you and your team and/or other investors have seeded the deal with. The minimum requisite amount will be deal and industry dependent. We will not consider 100% financing requests.
Otherwise, we look forward to reviewing your deal.
The first step in our funding process is to do a preliminary review of the provided information by a potential Client seeking equity, debt or combination thereof for funding. Our Internal Due Diligence Team will complete the initial review of the provided submittal and if the proposed transaction is deemed financeable, they will go through the proposal before it is presented to our Executive Team. As most lenders and investors, we expect our Clients (and Introducers) to be familiar with and accept the following terms as they relate to the proposed financing request prior to moving forward.
Upon acceptance, we then move forward with the respective Project with a call with the Principals and key team members as required in order to vet the details and get to know the Client one on one, with members of our Executive Team. Upon satisfactory completion of the call, we will finish our review and submit it for the issuance of a Review and Term Sheet in regards to proceeding forward with the Project and Principals.
Upon acceptance by the Principals of the proposed terms and costs, a Formal Agreement is then prepared and once accepted and signed, our team begins the work on structuring the deal with the Due Diligence Team.
Note that our process is proprietary and this allows us to have no limitations on the size and scope of the Project (aside from certain industries and regions in the world), funding requirements or stage of the business lifecycle (from early stage to pre-IPO's).
Depending on the lending requirements and Project needs, any given Client can reasonably anticipated to spend money during the Due Diligence stage for items such as an Valuation Report, Appraisal Report (if Real Estate is involved), an Economical Viability Report, Market Studies and a complete audit of the Project. Some reports might already have been commissioned by the Principal team earlier, in which case they might be acceptable at the Due Diligence stage, subject to financing requirements. All of these reports are usually prepared by reputable, independent professional service providers such as international accounting and consulting firms.
We work directly with firms such as Kroll, KMPG, Grant Thornton, BDO, Ernst & Young, Deloitte, etc. Any given Firm retained will be based in the region or country that the Project is based out of or will be a global provider.
Upon successful completion of Due Diligence, legal and accounting closing costs can be reasonably anticipated prior to funding.
The costs of the required reports will vary depending on the size and scope of the Project and financing requirements. Our team will usually advise early on in the funding process of the necessary Due Diligence and other submittals.
Presuming that, after discussing the due diligence requirements and closing costs needed, the Client is comfortable that they can afford the requisite costs, we shall submit the Client's Project to our Executive Team for the issuance of an Formal Agreement, as outlined earlier, with general details about the structure and process we will propose for the funding request.
