Loan Offers

What is the loan for?

The funds will be used as follows:

a. Investment in stock for pro forma purchases with suppliers, in particular: Ungerer £42,000 ; MG Wax €60,000; Simply Cartons £50,000; FG Curtis £30,000.

b. As the business has grown, it has required increased working capital support to support this growth. As it is already profitable, debt will be repaid out of existing profitability. Our debt ratios comfortably demonstrate the debt repayment. The funding shortfall is not likely to happen again as we are investing more in existing product lines and limiting new product lines. In addition, we are seeking to refinance in the long term to ensure increased liquidity.

c. In the event there was no growth, the business would not require the incremental capital.

d. In the event there is interest, we will overfund to a maximum of £300,000

Why consider investing?

The business has always repaid it’s loans and capital. With a strong growing customer base and increased profitability we believe this represents an attractive opportunity. The Company has Net Assets of over £1.5million before the debt issue and therefore considerable headroom.
