£2m Debt/Equity Solution for Retailer Finance Provider

We are pleased to announce our latest close, a debt and equity raise for a niche finance platform.

Our client runs a FinTech lending platform. The service enables small retailers, tradespeople and professionals to offer their customers interest-free instalment plans, resulting in increased sales and competitive advantage.

The business had been self-funded by the founders and profitable since inception. 

The company identified new lending opportunities but this growth became dependent on the availability of external funding. The founders approached B&Y because of our proven track record of raising debt and equity capital for non-bank lenders.

Investment and Outcome 
We identified several debt and equity funders who specialise in supporting non-bank lenders from within our network. We constructed the case, generated interest from the right parties and arranged meetings where we presented the opportunity. Subsequently, we supported our client through lengthy negotiations with all interested parties.

Our clients are delighted with the outcome. The funders have provided a £2m debt facility, which will grow in support of the customer loan portfolio and a six figure equity sum to help build the infrastructure required to service this portfolio. The funder has also expressed serious interest in acquiring the remainder of the business once it hits agreed milestones, providing the founders with a clear exit route. 

a note from the client…

Thanks to Sean and colleagues at Beer & Young on the successful capital and debt raising for our lending business. As is often the case, it was in no way straightforward but B&Y kept at it and found the right solution which has already triggered much faster growth in the business.
