We represent and advise lenders, investors and borrowers on a wide variety of matters.
The most basic form of funding is by way of introducing capital into a business, for example by the issue of shares (whether at par or premium). Such funding is locked into the capital of the company.
Unless the shares have certain preferential rights, the “funder” will be seen as no different from any of the other shareholders.
More traditional funding is by way of a simple loan which is secured against an asset, for example, property or debtors.
Mezzanine finance is more appropriate where your main bank has limited appetite to provide further funding.
Mezzanine finance can take the form similar to traditional funding but mezzanine financiers may seek greater reward (for example, a higher interest rate) than primary funders.
Their risk profile is greater than primary lenders and they would usually rank behind them with regard to any repayment.
