Expansion Finance

Catalyst has a Partnership with a Japanese based financial group that is able to create structures to raise new loan funds for business projects in the UK.

The Japanese / UK consortium offers the opportunity for private and professional investors in Asia to participate in, and benefit from, the development of new projects and the expansion of existing businesses in the UK and mainland Europe.

The minimum size of Bond is £2.5m. There is no maximum.

The key point about the financial structures are:

• Effectively they are a type of  bond, therefore fundraising involves no equity dilution ie.. the cost is in the region of 8% interest which is cheaper than venture capital as it avoids the implicit cost of a VC deal (typically 30%).

• The Bond is secured against the company not individual assets; Loan repayment are at the end of five years or sooner.

• The interest rate is paid quarterly in arrears.

We will consider UK, European or US companies from any sector but specifically interested in:

• Industrial, Manufacturing, or Environmental Technology

• Medical and Healthcare

• Professional services, Property development and Infrastructure

• Finance, Leasing, Brokerage or Factoring

Companies must be able to demonstrate a growth market and expansion plans as well as:

• Strong corporate governance

• Good management team

• Profitability

• Trading history

• Strong financials
