A Canadian based trading company (holding licensed subsidiaries in Dubai) was successful in entering into a Gold Supply contract with several mining consortiums in Bolivia and Brazil. Our client would purchase the commodity and export it from South America to the UAE where it would be sold on pre-arranged sales contracts.

The commodity was sold to our client as Gold Doré bars (approximately 95% pure) and despatched to a well-known and trusted gold depository in Brazil, in readiness for export. Our client was required to place several payment guarantees with his suppliers, as well as a Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) to guarantee future shipments and the underlying supply contract. Once those Guarantees were in-situ, our client would export the commodity to his utilities inside the UAE where it would be smelted and sold as Bullion.

IntaCapital Swiss were successful in assisting our clients negotiate the terms of their gold supply agreements (and indeed their gold sales agreements in the UAE) and the terms of shipment to co-ordinate with the funding of the guarantees required and the security used for raising the Standby Letter of Credit, underpinning their master supply contracts.

Stemming from our in-depth assistance and on-going support, our client now enjoys long-term relationships with his gold suppliers, buyers, his secure logistics firm and his funders, who continue to service his requirements on a revolving basis.

A European owned gaming and hotel consortium wished to expand existing facilities and venues within 3 major cities in Croatia, Macedonia and Montenegro. As existing physical assets had already been committed for mortgage security with investors, lenders and other financial institutions, additional security was required to secure the additional borrowings. The company had good turnover and cash-flow and held over 2 years trading history at almost all of their locations.

IntaCapital were successful to secure third-party investment and a structured credit line using a Collateral Transfer Facility. As the existing facilities and venues had a sustainably good source of proven revenue, we were successful in obtaining our client very competitive terms and a long facility term (up to 7 years) in the event that the clients needed the facility for a longer than usual period of time.

In addition to us facilitating their funding requirements, we also arranged for them a suitable exit strategy where the Collateral Transfer facility would be replaced with longer-term, more economical funding secured directly against their bricks and mortar assets.

Holland Property

  • Brief : To obtain suitable collateral to bolster or enhance ability and to act as a fall-back in the event further funding was required.
  • Total Facility Requirement : € 30 million

Facility Obtained

A Dutch construction company with modest experience required third-party support in order to satisfy and qualify for a tender bid for a Housing project. IntaCapital succeeded to obtain a Collateral Transfer facility that acted for the client as ‘an injection of capital on stand-by’. This meant that client held the collateral in the event that they may require further funding. The collateral acted as a temporary financial enhancement whilst it was in their possession.

The investment was made via the medium of a Demand Guarantee (issued under standard terms). Once the collateral (the Bankers Letter of Guarantee) had been received at the client’s bank, the client decided to apply to his domestic bank for a structured loan advance based upon a forward exit strategy for the development.

This facility acted as a short term bridge loan to allow them to bridge their funding shortfall to kick-start their development. The exit strategy of the sale of the properties (or refinancing of them in the event they did not sell) gave the client the suitable repayment vehicles.

The rates we were able to obtain for the client were very competitive as the Provider of the facility considered the project of low risk given that it was residential housing with several pre-sales and safety nets.

A well established soft drinks manufacturer and distributor laid long-term plans to enter the European market with a range of soft and fruit based drinks using still and naturally sparking mineral waters. They employed IntaCapital to seek suitable partners and distribution networks in the East European and Balkan regions. This included seeking physical premises that included the necessity to locate and purchase an existing bottling plant that had a unique quality of mineral water. By employing our professional appraisal teams, we succeeded in securing premises that included land containing mineral water wells with naturally sparkling water. We also negotiated the necessary Government licences that enabled our client to operate the wells, plant and distribution.

IntaCapital were able to facilitate the necessary guarantees to secure the purchase of the plant and the development of it whilst the application for funding was being processed. IntaCapital were successful in securing a Collateral Transfer Facility for €21 million and arranged a private lending group to make available a credit line to the value of €18.5 million for up to a 6 year term.

The Company has operated successfully in their new premises with their new range of soft drinks and IntaCapital have already introduced them to several hotel groups and retailers who have entered into supply contracts with them.

An Indian textile manufacturer required additional security to release a pre-negotiated credit line with their existing offshore bankers. The additional borrowings were required for expansion of their distribution infrastructure in Dubai, where they had a relatively new but established sales network.

The client had been trading for only a few years but had a strong order book. The Facility successfully obtained by IntaCapital allowed them to receive investment from our UAE provider via the medium of a Demand Guarantee (Bank Guarantee) and was issued to their nominated recipient bank in Dubai. The recipient bank was associated to their subsidiary company in Dubai allowing the company to utilise the Guarantee as security for their Credit Line that they had pre-arranged themselves with their own bankers.

This transaction was a very typical type of credit enhancement proposal where the client did not hold suitable or adequate security to borrow from their existing bankers. Collateral Transfer assisted them to be successful by importing suitable loan security.
