CHALLENGE

The client was facing a liquidity squeeze due to Covid-19 restrictions and needed some short term liquidity to tide over a short period of time.

ACTION & SOLUTION

We reviewed their financial statements, available assets and existing banking facilities. As a result of our analysis, we uncovered that the client (i) faces challenges in monetising their assets to obtain more banking and financing facilities (e.g. no existing facilities and there is a time lag to source suitable funders) and (ii) unsure of the most suitable approach to find financing (e.g.: optimal approach to fulfill objectives within time and financial constraints)

Client engaged CCRManager as an advisor and inhouse CFO / Treasurer to rationalize balance sheet, develop and execute financing solutions. We provided a comprehensive financial plan that would support the business sustainably covering the following:

◦ Build relations with existing banker and engage new financiers.

◦ Develop a portfolio solution using whole turnover receivables financing to finance the growing pool of receivables.

◦ Engage alternative financiers to fill a short term working capital funding gap.
