What is Debt Financing?

When a company needs to pay for something, it can pay with cash, or it may finance the purchase. Financing means that it gets the money from other businesses or sources, in return for obligations. Companies that are short on cash may need financing to pay for short-term needs or long-term capital expenditures.

There are two kinds of financing—debt financing and equity financing.

Equity financing means the company raises money by selling ownership shares in the business.

Debt financing happens when a company gets a loan and promises to repay the loan over time, with interest. Debt financing can come from a lender’s loan or from selling bonds to the public.

Loans usually require the borrower to offer collateral to guarantee repayment. This is called a secured loan. If the borrower defaults on a secured loan, the lender can take the collateral as repayment.

Various assets may be acceptable as collateral. For example, accounts receivable, real estate, equipment, securities, mortgages, inventory and merchandise might be acceptable to the lender. Having other people or companies sign as guarantors or endorsers may also work to secure a loan.

Selling bonds or commercial paper in the capital markets is another way to raise money through debt financing. This may at times be more economical or easier than taking a bank loan.

Easyhome Enters Into Binding Agreement To Buy Cash Store Locations

By RTT News, January 18, 2015, 07:59:00 PM EDT

AAA

(RTTNews.com) – easyhome Ltd. (EH.TO) announced that its subsidiary, easyfinancial Services Inc., has entered into a binding agreement to purchase the lease rights and obligations for up to 47 retail locations across Canada, together with certain related assets at certain locations from The Cash Store Financial Services Inc.

Upon completion of the Transaction, these retail locations will be opened as new easyfinancial branches providing consumer loans to Canadian consumers.

easyfinancial noted that it submitted its proposal in accordance with Cash Store’s secondary sale process conducted under Cash Store’s proceeding under the Companies Creditors Arrangement Act (Canada). The Agreement and the completion of the Transaction remain subject to Court approval in Canada and the satisfaction of certain closing conditions customary to transactions of this nature. The Company anticipates closing the Transaction within the first quarter of 2015.

As per the terms of the Agreement, easyfinancial will assume the lease rights and obligations for up to 32 retail locations currently occupied by Cash Store immediately upon closing, subject to, among other conditions, Court approval. Additionally, the Company will also assume the lease rights and obligations for up to a further 15 retail locations currently occupied by Cash Store upon successful negotiation of lease extension or new agreements with the relevant landlords. The purchase price will not be disclosed until the Transaction closes.

“We are excited by the opportunity to acquire additional locations in Canada,” said David Ingram, easyhome’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “This acquisition will allow us to accelerate our retail footprint at easyfinancial as we were able to carefully select the best locations to match our unfilled targeted geography. The timing aligns very well as consumer demand for an alternative to banks and payday loans has grown significantly over the last 12 months and these branches will provide further access and convenience.”

The Company expects the Transaction to be accretive to earnings over the long term, as it accelerates loan book growth and provides further economies of scale. As a result of the Transaction, easyfinancial will increase its 2015 new easyfinancial openings from 40-45 to 60-65 branches and the loan book target for 2015 will increase from C$260 million -C$270 million to C$280 million- C$295 million.

In the short term, the new store drag associated with the incremental 20 store openings is expected to reduce earnings per share in 2015 by approximately C$0.10, but increase earnings per share by approximately C$0.15 in 2016 and add C$0.25 in 2017.

Federal agency sues two Johnson County men, says they bilked …

Federal authorities have asked a U.S. district judge to freeze the business activity and assets of a network of payday loan companies purportedly controlled by two local men.

The Federal Trade Commission earlier this month asked for injunctions against more than a dozen payday loan businesses controlled by two Johnson County men, Timothy A. Coppinger and Frampton T. Rowland III.

Those companies allegedly made about $28 million in payday loans over one 11-month period, “extracting” more than $46.5 million in return, according to federal court records.

“Defendants’ tactics serve the single purpose of bilking cash-strapped consumers out of as much money as possible,” federal lawyers alleged in court filings.

In some cases, the companies purchased consumer data and then gave loans to “customers” who never asked for them and then improperly took finance charges from their bank accounts, they allege.

The defendants also misrepresented the costs of their loans and then extracted finance charges from their borrowers’ bank accounts every two weeks, without every applying any of the payments to the loan principal, the lawsuit alleges.

The companies also violated federal laws requiring the accurate disclosure of loan terms and recurring electronic fund transfers, court records allege.

FTC lawyers filed the lawsuit under seal, which was lifted after U.S. District Judge Dean Whipple entered a 35-page temporary restraining order and appointed a receiver to take control of the companies.

Coppinger could not be reached for comment Monday afternoon. Rowland directed questions to his lawyer, Phillip G. Greenfield, who said he planned to fight for Rowland and the companies he controls.

“We disagree with the allegations directed at them and we intend to vigorously defend them in court,” Greenfield said.

One purported victim in the scheme, a Massachusetts man, wrote in an affidavit filed as part of the lawsuit that he lost his business, a barbershop, because of unauthorized withdrawals from his account and overdraft fees.

The man also said bill collectors had hounded him for payments on a loan he never requested.

“I am trying to start a new business, but it has been difficult since I am afraid to answer the phone,” the man wrote.

Business Loan Options for Entrepreneurs in 2014

Thumbnail

Finding money to grow a business has changed tremendously since the great recession. Whether sourcing capital in the form of debt, equity, or something in between, also known as mezzanine, it’s safe to say entrepreneurs have more multiple options than ever to pursue. That doesn’t make the task an easy one to accomplish. Unfortunately for the entrepreneur, the additional options have only served to increase the confusion surrounding their need for cash.

To make matters worse, for the entrepreneur who is moving from what is considered to be a small business sized enterprise into the lower-middle or middle market, seeking the appropriate capital sources becomes a confusing and a very difficult task.

[Disclosure: I have no equity ownership in any of the companies referenced.]

Part of the confusion when searching for a business loan is related to the fact that a consistent definition of the size of a small business vs. lower-middle market vs. middle market business simply doesn’t exist. I work on behalf of clients who are in the lower-middle market and even I have trouble defining the boundaries. Do we define the boundaries by gross revenues? EBITDA? Number of full-time employees? Trust me, it’s a fuzzy definition for all involved.

Before I get into the various options for entrepreneurs to find money to borrow, I’d like to address how the capital landscape has changed and several of the driving forces behind these changes.

Investors with Cash are Seeking Yield

Whether it’s your grandmother investing her life savings or an accredited investor, no one is happy in today’s investment climate with the low interest income earned on Certificates of Deposit and bonds, or the volatility in the financial markets. Everyone is seeking higher investment returns in safe places. As a result individual investors are finding their way into the lucrative world of lending money to business borrowers through a few new avenues.

Institutional Investors are Sharing Yield with BDC’s SBIC’s and Private Family Offices

Institutional Investors, such as insurance companies, endowment funds, pension funds, and foundations, are facing fierce competition for places to invest their capital from Business Development Corporations, Small Business Investment Companies and smaller or single private family offices. It’s because individual investors are investing money through their investment brokers in BDC’s, SBIC’s and, if wealthy enough, starting their own private family office. All are seeking higher returns on their investment portfolio.

The Emergence of Peer-to-Peer Lending Brings Even More Cash to the Table

Although Peer-to-Peer Lending is relatively new in the United States, other forms of Peer-to-Peer capital raising have been operating in other parts of the world for years. They have been raising equity, debt, and donations to launch new ventures, fund artists, and expand business. The United Kingdom has two well-known P2P Equity sites known as Seedrs, and Crowdcube.

“Peer-to-Peer Lending is a form of crowdsourcing”, according to Gregory J. Nowak of Pepper Hamilton, LLP, “and the SEC registered offerings are not subject to the private placement or Title III Crowdfunding rules.” Since late 2013, the opportunities to borrow on the P2P lending platform have grown in number and popularity. In part, entrepreneurs are moving to this online borrowing platform because of its simplicity.

Peer-to-Peer Lenders vet an applicant’s borrowing worthiness through a website. The borrower is screened for various factors including, but not limited to: the business owner’s credit score and income, company profitability, no liens, tax compliance, etc. Once a borrower is approved initially for a loan amount and a term of one to five years, the individual accredited investor is given an opportunity to bid on a portion of the loan offering. Each loan is comprised of the small investment of many individual accredited investors collectively known as a “slices.” This offers investors a way to diversify their loan portfolios by spreading risk within a micro portion of many loans. Once the loan offering is funded by the investment of many accredited investors, the loan proceeds are delivered to the borrower. Funding from the initial application to final signatures can be in as little as two weeks.

Having worked with hundreds of business owners over the past few decades who have sought financing through banks, I can attest personally to the fact that the typical bank loan application process is not as streamlined or painless. Having said that, it’s important to note that the total cost of capital paid to the P2P lenders is higher than what is offered by bank lenders and somewhat lower than Factoring financing. Despite the higher cost of capital associated with P2P loans, this new source of capital is widely perceived as a disruptor in the financing marketplace.

Once again, it is the individual who is investing their capital in the Peer-to-Peer loan marketplace as they seek a better return for their investment portfolios.

Bank Loan Alternatives in the Small Business and Middle Market

For many years, there were a just a few dominant lenders outside of banks available to the small business and middle market entrepreneur. This group included CIT Capital and GE Capital. In 2008 CIT Capital became a bank holding company and ultimately received TARP funds. One year later CIT filed for federal bankruptcy protection. In 2013, GE Capital became subject to greater government scrutiny and tougher financing requirements due to its required regulation by the Financial Stability Oversight Council. These two popular bank loan alternatives have been forced to endure changes in the way they operate which has changes the business lending landscape forever.

Emerging from the great recession are new providers of capital for the small business and middle market borrowers driven by investors from all walks of life seeking higher returns. Below in summary format, is an list of some of the bank loan alternative lenders available to small and middle market businesses. These alternative lenders do not include Capital and Operating Lease Financing Companies, Accounts Receivable Factoring companies, Purchase Order and Inventory Financing companies, and Merchant Cash Advance companies, Private Equity Groups, Venture Capital firms, or Angel Investors.

This set of examples is intended to include bank loan alternatives which closely mirror the form of capital loan packages typically offered by banks. Those alternatives which offer mezzanine debt are noted as well.

This summary of alternative loan sources above is not all inclusive, and their offerings will likely change in the future.

In conclusion, the two most noteworthy points about today’s alternative lenders are these. First, the wide range of market size definitions by the lenders themselves demonstrates they cannot agree about where the lower-middle market ends and where the middle market begins. Some define it with EBITDA, others with revenue and there is no consistency in the financial ranges. And second, there is a glaring and wide gap between the loan alternatives offered to small businesses through the new Peer-to-Peer Lending platforms and loans offered to Lower-Middle and Middle Market businesses by the private lenders and Business Development Corporations. For example, if you own a business with annual gross revenue of $12M, you likely will need a $1.5 million line of credit on your Accounts Receivable. Other than banks, who is lending to businesses in need of capital in the $500,000 to $2 million range? If you know, please share the resource below.

Introducing a Better Source for Merchant Cash Advance Loans, Thanks to Leading Alternative Lender, Business Cash …

Thumbnail

http://www.businesscashadvanceguru.com

The Best Source for Merchant Cash Advance Loans, Courtesy of BusinessCashAdvanceGuru.Com

Nationwide (PRWEB) April 03, 2014

A growing trend among small businesses is merchant cash advance options. Companies can get an affordable business loan with bad credit and have enough business money with a cash advance to make strategic moves, to make opportunistic buys, and explore new avenues of growth. A business cash advance makes it possible to obtain capital funding without the red tape so common at big banks.

Large corporate banks are putting working capital out of reach for many small businesses across the country and the figures bear it. “The Fed asks the bankers if they are tightening or easing credit standards. In the latest survey, somewhat more said they were easing (9.5 percent for large and small companies, 4.9 percent for small companies). These are relatively small numbers; over the past few years they have ranged from highs of 80 percent difference to lows of -20 percent. (Bankers are clearly more willing to report that they are tightening standards than that they are easing credit standards.) Interest rate spreads are a very different story. (‘Spread’ is the difference between what the bank charges borrowers and the interest expense the bank incurs getting funds.) Hugely more bankers report decreasing loan spreads: 60 percent for large and medium customers, 46 percent for small business,” Forbes magazine reports.

Since the end of the Great Recession, small business lending has been scarce. New federal banking regulations are causing lenders to heavily scrutinize commercial loan applications. Without credit unions lending to small businesses, alternative lenders are filling the void. Combined with a lackluster economic outlook and new insurance requirements, banks aren’t lending to small businesses.

“Business Cash Advance Guru makes obtaining financing approval as fast and as simple as completing a credit card application. The goal of providing access to business capital swiftly and easily to small businesses across the country is realized through the alternative lender’s release of its proprietary commercial funding system.”

Insurance Playing a Large Roll

In the past, banks have required business applicants to undergo a commercial credit check, and disclose all personal and company assets and liabilities. Banks also wanted certified financial documentation of the company’s health and growth potential. Now, banks are asking for collateral equal or comparable to the loan amount, as well as a personal guarantee. This is because banks are assessing their risk factoring in new federal employer health care coverage requirements. Banks do not believe that small companies will be able to afford such costs and are turning down loan applications, as a result.

However, alternative lenders are making affordable commercial capital available to businesses across several different industries. These lenders do not require a company credit history review or collateral to qualify for a loan. In addition, alternative lenders are bringing resources together and using technology to cut costs. This results in affordable loan products.

Small businesses do not have to fill out long, tedious applications and can apply online at their convenience. Approvals are given in 24 hours, and funds are paid within three to five days after approval. Companies can qualify for $5,000 to $500,000 based on past and projected credit card sales and future bank deposits. Funds can be used for any purpose and interest rates are competitive.

Payment installments are based on a percentage of the loan and not a fixed dollar amount. What’s more, there are tax benefits to these alternative loan products.

Abe Loan Push Impeded by Companies Hoarding Cash: Japan Credit

Japanese banks are the most keen to lend companies money in 17 years. Corporate treasurers don’t need the cash.

A Bank of Japan index measuring the prevalence of mid-sized companies saying banks are willing to make loans rose to 19 in March, the highest since June 1997, according to Tankan data. Yet demand for loans from businesses remains below levels before the global financial crisis, other central bank data show.

The BOJ’s unprecedented monthly buying of about 7 trillion yen ($67 billion) of sovereign notes has flooded Japan’s markets with funds to encourage banks to boost lending, as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe tries to beat deflation. Companies including SoftBank Corp. (9984) and Toyota Motor Corp. have built buffers since the financial crisis with total cash holdings of non-financial Topix index members reaching the equivalent of $636 billion in latest filings, from $417 billion in March 2007, data compiled by Bloomberg show.

“It’s a positive that banks are more willing to lend, but the problem is that there’s just not much demand for funds among borrowers,” said Norio Miyagawa, a senior economist at Mizuho Securities Research & Consulting Co. in Tokyo. “We need to see the impact of the tax increase and the economic outlook.”

Japan’s economy will probably shrink 3.5 percent in the quarter started April 1 as the increase in the sales tax to 8 percent from 5 percent this month weighs on spending, according to a survey of economists by Bloomberg. Large manufacturers expect the Tankan sentiment index to worsen to 8 in June from 17 in March, according to BOJ survey released this week.

Lending Rates

Domestic long-term lending rates were at 0.877 percent in February, one basis point from a record low set in December, according to BOJ data. The central bank’s stimulus has dragged down Japanese interest rates, with the 10-year yield at 0.635 percent, the lowest in the world. The yen was unchanged at 103.88 per dollar as of 11:04 a.m. in Tokyo.

BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda and his board started their unprecedented easing policy last April in an effort to stamp out 15 years of deflation in the world’s third-largest economy.

The central bank is trying to fuel investors’ risk-taking by targeting an increase in inflation to 2 percent. Companies forecast that consumer price growth will pick up to 1.5 percent over the next 12 months, reaching 1.7 percent in three years where it will remain through 2019, the BOJ said yesterday. Prices (JNCPIXFF) excluding fresh food rose 1.3 percent from a year earlier in February.

Lending Attitude

This week’s Tankan data signal the turnaround in banks’ lending stance since the global financial crisis. The index which subtracts the percentage of companies saying banks are severe in their lending attitude from those saying they are accommodative was at minus 11 in March 2009 compared with 19 for mid-sized companies in this week’s survey.

Even so, while outstanding lending to companies increased by 2.2 percent from a year earlier in February, the total amount of 275 trillion yen in loans remains below levels in 2009, according to BOJ data.

An index measuring corporate demand for bank loans was 8 in January, versus 9 in mid-2007, a year before the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. sparked global financial turmoil, the BOJ’s quarterly loan officer survey shows.

“There’s no bottleneck for supplying funds,” said Yuichi Kodama, chief economist at Meiji Yasuda Life Insurance Co. in Tokyo. “The problem for most companies isn’t a lack of funds but that there aren’t good investments to make.”

Retained Earnings

Retained earnings by Japanese companies rose to 293.5 trillion yen in the October-December period of 2013, the highest since the data going back to 1954, according to the finance ministry data.

SoftBank’s cash has increased to the equivalent of $19.4 billion in the latest filing from $2.6 billion in March 2007, while that of Toyota, the world’s biggest carmaker, rose $1.4 billion to $17.5 billion, data compiled by Bloomberg show.

The BOJ doubled to 7 trillion yen a loan program to encourage banks to lend in February and said individual firms could borrow twice as much low-interest money as previously under the second facility.

Large companies plan to boost capital spending by only 0.1 percent in the year started April after an estimated 3.9 percent increase in fiscal 2013, according to the Tankan data.

Capital Investment

Capital investment is recovering a bit, but it’s still not that strong,” said Yoshimasa Maruyama, the Tokyo-based chief economist at Itochu Corp. “There’s not much motivation to invest domestically.”

Japanese companies have been borrowing to finance overseas acquisitions.

Billionaire Masayoshi Son’s SoftBank took out a 2 trillion yen loan last year to fund its purchase of Sprint Corp. Takeda Pharmaceutical Co., which bought Switzerland’s Nycomed in 2011, borrowed 80 billion yen in March 2012.

“In the long term, lending will probably increase, but mostly for overseas rather than domestic investment,” said Maruyama at Itochu, Japan’s third-largest trading company. “Companies are cash rich, and funding demand for domestic investment isn’t that strong.”

Check Cashing & Payday Loan Services in the US Industry Market …

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 19, 2014

The Check Cashing and Payday Loan Services industry accounts for nearly a quarter of financial services spending by underbanked consumers. Frozen lending markets caused by the recession expanded the underbanked client pool for industry operators, as a growing number of individuals were unable to access traditional financial product offerings. As such, the industry is predominately countercyclical in nature, with rising unemployment and poverty rates benefiting demand levels substantially. Rather than default on debts, poor or recently laid-off consumers chose to turn to the industry’s unsecured loan products during and subsequent to the recession. Consequently, revenue for the Check Cashing and Payday Loan Services industry is expected to increase at an annualized rate of 2.0% from 2009 to 2014 to reach $ 11.1 billion; this growth includes a 2.2% rise in revenue expected in 2014 alone.

According to The Pew Charitable Trusts, 5.5% of domestic adults have used a payday loan. In general, younger individuals that lack a college degree and generate less than $ 40,000 in annual income are the most likely to rely on payday loans. The average borrower takes out eight loans of $ 375 each and pays $ 520 in interest annually. Moreover, this average borrower is typically indebted for five months out of the year.

According to IBISWorld Industry Analyst Stephen Hoopes, “Given the industry’s reliance on poorer consumers for revenue, regulatory agencies have sought to increase legislation surrounding industry operators, as they view payday loans and check cashing fees as exploitative.” As such, 15 states currently either ban payday loans or cap the annual percentage rate at 36.0%. Furthermore, as national interest rate cap proposals are forecast to intensify, compliance costs are expected to increase, to the detriment of profit margins.

Over the five years to 2019, industry revenue is forecast to increase at a more subdued annualized rate. “Despite rising employment levels, the number of consumers that are structurally unemployed or in poverty is anticipated to remain elevated,” says Hoopes. Moreover, competition from commercial banks that offer similar short-term, high-interest products is expected to fall, given recent decisions by Wells Fargo and US Bank to discontinue these offerings. Yet, external competition is still expected to rise, largely in the form of companies that offer industry products exclusively online. In addition, expected increases in regulation are anticipated to force some industry operators to move geographic locations or close down entirely.
