Project Description

The company has a 1M€ investment program focused on the company’s digitalization through immaterial investments, outsourcing and recruitment. The financing of this program is made in two tranches. As a reminder, the October lending community supported Editialis in march 2019 with 519 000 € to finance the first part of the investment program. The company requests 505 000 € with 3 months of deferred repayment to finance the second part of the investment program. This project will be realised this quarter.

This project is a Flexible Bridge Loan, an amortizable loan with a standard commitment for the first 9 months and the possibility of early repayment at no cost for the remainder of the loan term, even in the event of refinancing by other financial institutions.

This project is a medium-term loan with a capital amortisation deferment and as such presents a different method of capital repayment than standard projects. The first 3 months, the lenders will only receive interest; the following 33 months, the lenders will receive interest and principal amortization. This principal repayment profile matches the borrower’s financing needs while allowing lenders to earn a higher amount of interest.

The amount offered on the platform is limited to 247450€, which is in line with the regulatory limits.
