Options for raising finance
We can assist in advising on suitable sources of financing your business. This can either be debt and/or equity. The financing option depends on your needs and investment goals.
In debt finance money is borrowed and is normally repaid with interest while in equity; money is raised by issue of shares for some ownership expecting a return as either dividend or capital or both.
Debt Financing can be obtained from several sources such as Commercial banks, Commercial finance companies (companies turned down by commercial banks turn to these banks), leasing companies, state and local government lending programs (state and local governments provide direct capital, grants, small loans at reduced interest rates), Trade credit and consortiums. Sale and issue of shares will normally raise equity finance – this can be by private or public issue.
