What is Revolving Credit Facility suited for?
A revolving credit facility is well suited for reducing a company’s temporary cash deficit. With a revolving credit facility, you can finance a situation where, for example during the holiday season, there is less billing than usual.
A revolving credit facility is suited, for example, for balancing seasonal fluctuation, financing projects and for other short-term investments. Compared with a traditional corporate loan, it is easier and more straightforward to draw down a credit facility. When you conclude an agreement on revolving credit facility, you can make drawdown requests online. When you pay back the amount that you drew down, the same amount of revolving credit facility will become available for re-use.
Loan term and collateral
For credit that is drawn down under a revolving credit facility, the loan term is 1–12 months. The credit that has been drawn down will be repaid on a lump-sum basis at the end of the loan term.
The most important factor for a positive financing decision is your company’s solvency. To secure the repayment of your financing, the bank usually requires collateral, too. These secure the repayment of the loan if your company’s cash flow is not sufficient for repayments.
If necessary, we will help in arranging collateral your company needs for a credit facility. We can also help in obtaining Finnvera’s guarantee. With Finnvera’s guarantee, it is possible to cover a significant part of collateral. In addition to Finnvera’s guarantee, you can also use real securities – such as real estate mortgages, shares in a housing company or business mortgages – as financing collateral. As side collateral, the entrepreneur can also give a personal guarantee meaning that a guarantor is liable for the credit or for an agreed share of the credit with his/her personal assets.
Revolving Credit Facility is granted by OP cooperative bank.
A loan may involve an interest rate cap or interest rate corridor, i.e. interest rate hedging is automatically included in the terms and conditions of the agreement.
The interest rate cap and corridor provides your company with protection against interest rate risk that may be caused by a rise in interest rates. The interest rate floor can be used to affect the cost of interest rate hedging if a minimum interest rate is set for the loan that your company pays on the loan.
We can set the interest rate cap and floor to be in line with your company's risk tolerance and view of interest rates.
