The capacity for growth is exponential, with funds raised we plan to continue to grow and innovate new services that will transform business communication.

Credit Commentary:
The director Mark Stewart is providing a personal guarantee, which means should the business fail and have insufficient assets within the business to repay the loan, we can look to the guarantor(s) to repay any shortfall on repayment. There have been no CCJs for the business or director. Based on the fact that the client has previously done business with us and has a good track record of repaying their debts, by their recent management accounts we analysed a DSC score of 3.74 and a net gearing ratio of -20%. These figures indicate a moderate level of financial risk. The client’s EBITDA is £27 million, which falls within our credit policy. The client’s TNW is positive at £49 million. While the director of the company is not a homeowner, their spouse is. The business’s turnover has increased by 47% between 2022 and 2023. Additionally, their bank statements from the last three months show a consistent and positive cash flow.

Inflation Risk:
As the majority of lending to the business is at a fixed rate, they will not be immediately affected by interest rate increases. The directors do not expect to draw money from the business as the funds will be used for business expansion.
