Case study

A six-equity principal firm that needed to refinance existing working capital and firm investment debt, as well as fund a new premises fit out and Bank Guarantee.

Refinance of business purpose debt
(Fully Drawn Advance and Overdraft) = $1,000,000

Security: Business General Security Agreement (GSA)
Provide additional funding for fit out funding = $1,500,000
Security: Business GSA
Provide Bank Guarantee = $450,000
Security: Business GSA


The firm has the required facilities, structured against its balance sheet. The new premises acquired has additional space and is brand new, which will enable the firm to attract new equity principals from other firms, which is part of the firm’s growth strategy. Personal banking requirements for partners can also now be expediated given an understanding of the firm’s financial position and cash flows.
