We can occasionally offer Collateral Transfer S.M.E and Collateral Transfer Enterprise packages which can accommodate funding from €2m to €9m for smaller projects, bridging, expansion or rescue funding. These packages are offered on different Terms and can be fast-tracked for turn-around inside 15 working days.
Collateral is limited, and a Provider will only offer to their maximum limit which is dependent upon the status of the applicant and current market conditions. Providers will issue the Bank Guarantees from international banks, making them widely acceptable; all Guarantees are issued inter-bank via SWIFT. Applicants can provide their own verbiage, although all Guarantees issued under these facilities contain standard credit facility Guarantee wording (ICC758) which can be provided upon request.
Typically, Terms can range from 1 year, renewable to up to 5 years, depending on the willingness of the Provider and the strength of the applicant. Longer Terms are sometimes negotiable to 10 years although this may only be available to very strong applicants and longer-term projects.
Bank Guarantee Contract Fees, for amounts of €10m to €100m, levied by Provider’s are commonly between 05,50% and 08,50% per annum, depending on the Term, amount and current market demand. Multiple Bank Guarantee contracts will of course attract lower rates.
If the applicant is not a listed company or has a trading history less than 4 years, the Provider may request that a Security Deposit contribution is paid against the Bank Guarantee Contract Fee upon acceptance of their collateral offer contract.
The deposits are paid to the Provider directly or to an acceptable escrow arrangement that the Provider will open specifically for the contract. At completion, the deposit is deducted from the Contract Fee.
In some cases, the Providers may add a Facility Fee of around 0.15% to 0.25% and this is often included in the Contract Fee.
Some Providers may also levy legal fees or assignment fees which are payable at completion. However, IntaCapital Swiss are often successful in negotiating these fees to be included in the Contract Fee; there are no other charges or hidden costs.
All costs, Procedures and Terms are detailed in full in the Term Sheet we provide before the applicant is required to make any financial commitment. There is no obligation to accept Terms once they are offered.
Indicative Terms, guidance and illustrations are available upon request without obligation.
