When do Lenders need us?

Any of the following symptoms can lead to increased risk for you as a lender. We have the experience and resources to assess how great the risk may be and whether the symptoms can be managed:

1) Unsatisfactory financial reporting

  • Late financial statements

  • Year end financial statements significantly different from interim financial statements

  • Unexplained difference between actual and forecast

  • Sudden changes in accounting policies, e.g., deferral of R&D and marketing costs

2) Deteriorating financial results

  • Increase in losses

  • Decline in gross profit percentage, sales and earnings

  • Overhead costs uncontrolled

  • Debt to equity ratio too high

  • Overheads too high and increasing

  • Bad debts

  • Decline in new orders

3) Under-capitalization

  • Over expansion financed by debt

  • Insufficient working capital

  • Erosion of capital by ongoing operating losses

4) Breach of loan covenants and security margins

  • Delay or failure to report breach

  • Renegotiation of loan covenants

5) No business plan

  • Act as advisor when one of its clients has sought protection under insolvency legislation;
