Janus Venture Finance To Fill The Funding Gap


A new venture is being launched in June to help companies looking to raise funds who face a long-standing problem . raising finance when the loan sought is too big to fund via an overdraft but too small to interest traditional venture capitalists.

Janus Venture Finance provides short and medium term funding solutions for businesses looking to raise £250,000 - £5 million but unable to do so through traditional channels. Its focus is around short-term (3 months to 364 days) mezzanine funding, enabling businesses or professional practices to invest in growth and development.

Janus Venture Finance already works with lenders and providers of funding to assist companies who may not be able to extend their borrowing from regular sources any further, or where there may be a need for some restructuring before existing providers will feel comfortable lending more.

It is unusual in taking a broad view on the security available to secure funding. As well as property and plant and machinery, consideration is given to secure against work in progress or order books, intellectual property, book debt or personal guarantees.

The launch follows on the back of a highly successful trial period, during which a series of deals have been completed. These ranged from an advance of £350,000 to a medium sized legal practice, which was secured on Work in Progress, to a twelve month bridging facility of £1.1m secured on intellectual property and an equity stake for a utility sector supplier.

Each application will initially be evaluated by Hoskyn Child International, who's chairman Jonathan Wooller said: "Janus Venture Finance is aimed at a wide selection of businesses, ranging from manufacturers through to professional firms. By taking into account a far broader range of security, which traditional funders cannot always consider, we believe we can assist many companies who's growth is currently held back by lack of access to funds."

"Far from competing, we are looking to complement traditional banking and financial sources by supplementing their existing arrangements or providing total solutions for the client's funding requirements. Taking this broader view on the security available often allows the existing funder and client to retain current relationships for the future."

"By accessing a network of investors who find the returns from the City, pensions or property unattractive, and who are not risk-averse, we can add another dimension to fund raising. We are already receiving increasing numbers of enquiries for financial brokers, banks, accountants and factoring houses."
