Royalty Finance provides the key to becoming the master of your own business destiny.

The global pandemic has dealt yet another blow to business in general, and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in particular.

Even at the beginning of the year, the level of indebtedness across this community was untenable.

Receive capital, Retain control.

We provide capital to profitable, long-term businesses. We allow business owners to retain control without dilution and remove re-financing risk, enabling management to focus on growth. We provide capital in exchange for rights to a small percentage of future revenues and are truly aligned to our royalty partners. The percentage payable is reset annually, subject to a ceiling and a floor, according to your revenue performance.

Benefits over equity

Ownership Preservation

For business owners, we provide a non-dilutive solution, we do not take a seat on your board and you continue to own and control your company

A Passive, Long-Term Funding Partner

No pressure for an exit or liquidity event, no focus on short term profit maximisation. We provide capital in return for a percentage of revenues on a term of 30+ years

Control Over Any Refinancing

Unlike private equity, the owners are in control of the timing of a refinancing event or exit

Benefits over debt

Variable Payment Structure

Distributions fluctuate with your revenue, there is no repayment of principal at the end of the royalty’s life and the term is extended over decades

Covenant-Light Capital

Royalty finance is less restrictive and less intrusive than debt. It can subordinate to senior debt and requires no personal guarantees

Follow-On Financing

We are a partner to your business and our listing on the London Stock Exchange means that we can provide an ongoing source of capital which can be made available in situations where traditional forms of debt are difficult to obtain

No Refinancing Risk

There is never a large principal repayment we dictate; you control the timing of the refinancing event
