Gathering financial sources and liquidity regulation are the two processes that are important to any company. In the past, companies depended on and opted for bank sources, while the changes and the development of the Slovenian capital market has encouraged the alternative sources of collecting means on the capital market in the form of debt securities.
We consult companies about the restructuring process of issuing and preparing the necessary documentation, searching for and addressing potential investors and executing the process of issuing commercial papers or bonds to the KDD or their introduction to the Ljubljana Stock Exchange
WHY DECIDE TO ISSUE BONDS OR COMMERCIAL PAPERS?
Due to the non-competitive lending interest rates of the local banks and low requested revenues on capital markets for debt securities, the opportunity of acquiring sources of financing through the capital market has arisen. The advantages of issuing debt securities in comparison to the traditional bank loan are the following:
- Diversification of the sources of financing and reducing the dependence on particular banks.
- Flexibility in selecting the debt deadline and greater adaptability.
- Less commitment and encumbrance clauses regarding achieving specific business indicators.
- In case of an adequate financial stability of the issuer, the bonds or commercial papers do not have to be secured, which can mean for the issuer that the existing insurances can be released for other business needs.
- Entry into the capital market, opening an additional channel to the financial sources and the establishment of the resources gathering practice.
- Liquidity of debt financial instruments on the secondary market.
- Competitiveness of interest rates of debt securities in comparison with the bank interest rates.
- Preparation of the entire documentation for acquiring sources of financing from the brokerage company.
WHICH COMPANIES ARE MORE SUITABLE?
Suitable companies are local companies which:
- are planning additional investment needs, be it for renovation or expansion of production, or acquisition or any other type of business activities;
- are moderately indebted;
- need a minimum of 3 million EUR of resources.
