Steps to getting financing

It begins with understanding you, your business and your financing needs. Building a strong, partner-focused relationship allows us to provide you flexible solutions and trusted advice.

Here’s how we do it:

  • 1

    Connect with you

    • Get to know you, your business and your financing requirements
    • Explain what we do, and how the deal will progress
    • Take a look at your cash flow position, business case and management capacity
    • Review your application

    Interest Letter

    • For larger and more complex deals, we internally screen financing requests through our credit committee to provide assurance that we can deliver, subject to due diligence
    • Issue an interest letter outlining the terms and conditions of the deal
      • This is a non-binding, indicative term sheet to ensure we have an agreement in principle before getting into full due diligence
    • Collaborate with your senior lender, as appropriate
    • Payment of the work fee is due, which is 2% of the loan amount, refundable if the deal is not approved

    Due Diligence

    • Work closely with you to examine management, operations, marketing, and financial results
    • Present our findings to our credit committee for loan approval
