What is the loan for?

Our short term aim is providing the business with working capital. In particular an element is required to convert two dining rooms at Cleeve Hill into two extra bedrooms. Planning is not required and CQC do not require any additional registration as we have a registration for 50 beds but only use 48 beds. Building regulation permission would be needed but presents no particular issues in obtaining it according to the Building Surveyor who is to manage the works.

The costing is attached. We are putting a part of the £100k per the note below and seek the additional loan to provide the balance of funds. We expect to be able to pay the loan back over a shorter period that 3 years as we would expect to pay those funds back first. The balance of our £100k is being used for supporting the growth of Cleevelink.

Why consider investing?

Whilst the companies cannot borrow further funds from it's primary Bank – Barclays, the companies have a healthy equity surplus – circa £7.5m. The Directors and senior management are very committed to the continuing improvements to all the businesses by ensuring quality is always at the forefront coupled with profitable and sustainable growth. The companies services are much in demand often on a negotiated basis. Profits are substantially improved over the last 12 months as both growth and savings as planned have taken hold an matured. Further key savings should add to the profitability such as route optimisation.

The Directors have recently added £100k from their own funds to support the businesses. It represents a significant investment and commitment to the businesses going forward.

We hope a lender will be encouraged by the commitment of the senior team and by the extra committed funds placed into the business.
