We offer diversified financial instruments

  • We are a partner that enables flexible adjustment of the company's financial structure.
  • We work with private, financial and industry investors.
  • We have the capital and appropriate tools to analyse each situation in an individual way.
  • Senior debt
    • An alternative to bank financing characterized by flexibility and speed (on average 3-10 weeks to making funds available)
    • Senior debt can be used for investments, acquisitions of enterprises or simply strengthening of working capital during periods of rapid business growth
    • Financing is available to companies with strong business model and regular cash flows
    • Repayment of the main financing amount is possible in a bullet at the end of the funding period. This allows the company to accumulate cash or increase working capital
    • Typically, the funding period does not exceed 5 years
    • The company's assets may serve as the security for the financing

     

  • Junior debt
    • Financing provided in addition to other types of financing, mainly bank financing
    • This debt is junior in terms of repayment and collateral in relation to other financing entities
    • It allows the company to finance further business development without the need to find external equity investors and change the ownership structure
    • Junior debt can be used for investments, acquisitions, strengthening of working capital, payment of dividends or purchase of own shares
    • Offers flexibility of payment service, allowing the company to capitalize a portion of the interest expense (a “payment-in-kind” structure)
    • The source of repayment (usually up to 5 years) are operating cash flows, with the possibility of repayment at the end of the financing period

     

  • Unitranche
    • The perfect solution for time or structural constraints if more debt is needed. It allows the company to incur senior and junior debt in a single financing, entirely provided by CVI
    • Facilitates the process of obtaining financing for new projects or optimizing the existing financial structure
    • It allows the company to replace many various forms of financing with one reliable partner and one solution
    • Unitranche can be used to refinance existing liabilities, finance takeovers, working capital increase or recapitalization
    • Repayment takes place from current cash flows over a period of up to 5 years in installments or bullet payment at maturity
    • Financing is typically secured by the assets of the finance company

  • Mezzanine
    • The most flexible type of financing offered by funds managed by CVI
    • It allows accepting risk beyond senior/junior debt financing. This is showed, among others in repayment sources, where in addition to cash flows, it is also possible to pay off by refinancing, or the sale of the entire company
    • This financing is usually provided for up to 5 years
    • It serves such purposes as investments, acquisitions, buyouts, recapitalizations, restructurings or project financings
    • It is allowed to partially capitalize interest (a “payment-in-kind” structure) and repay the whole at the end of the financing period
    • It is also possible to include variable payment based on growth in equity value, such as warrants or other capital instruments

     

  • Convertible debt and private equity
    • Funds managed by CVI can also invest in debt convertible into equity or directly into the equity of a given company
    • In direct investments into capital (such as "private equity"), we usually have minority stakes, leaving operational management of the company in the hands of majority shareholders
    • We have an investment horizon of 3 to 5 years and we expect an agreement concerning the proposed exit path
    • Equity financing can also be combined with mezzanine or junior financing

  • Special situations and restructuring
    • Funds managed by CVI can also provide financing for entities in a difficult liquidity situation or in restructuring
    • The available collateral plays a key role in these transactions
    • CVI is able to engage in comprehensive restructuring processes, for example by buying debts from other financing providers or suppliers who want to release their funds without waiting for the restructuring process to succeed
    • In such cases, the funding provided by the funds managed by CVI can be in the form of debt or private equity and is always individually tailored to the given situation
