Project Description

The company requests 310.000 € with 6 months of deferred repayment to finance the start of the renovation and refurbishement works of a new floor to increase student capacity. As part of their future investment plan, the University may come back to the October platform within the coming quarter, up to a maximum exposure of 1.000.000 €. Our analysis takes this into account; the rating of the borrower would not be affected, while the FCCR would become 1.15. This project will be realised next month.

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 6 months, the lenders will only receive interest; the following 42 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 151.900€, which is in line with the regulatory limits.
