The company identified an acquisition target and was seeking non-dilutive financing from a banking partner who had a holistic understanding of their business model. A key consideration was access to flexible financing terms as they undergo high cash burn inorganic and organic growth initiatives to achieve their 5-year plans to expand their global footprint.
Our team of technology experts have prior operational experiences in start-ups and was able to see that each stage of a start-up comes with its own set of unique challenges and offered a customized approach. With the understanding that timing of spend is a critical component in inorganic growth activities, we presented two debt facilities that would allow management to execute on quick acquisition decisions.
