Why Consider Corporate Debt Financing?
Corporate debt financing may be attractive to companies for several reasons:
- Debt is almost always less dilutive to existing shareholders than equity.
- Properly structured debt can extend the cash runway for a company that needs to reach specific milestones to increase its valuation.
- It is common to use debt to help reach other valuable milestones in product development, overall breakeven revenue, and profitability.
Types of Corporate Debt Financing
There are multiple approaches companies may use to finance growth through debt. The most common are:
- Venture Debt
- Revenue Interest Financing
- Royalty Based Financing
- MRR Lines of Credit
- Structured Financing
- Equipment Lease
- Working Capital Lines of Credit
Our debt placement consultants utilize their extensive experience to analyze a client’s debt requirements, develop an appropriate strategy, conduct a rigorous lender evaluation, solicit bids, and help to negotiate the most favorable terms possible.
Our typical process to complete a debt finance deal takes 4-8 weeks.
