3. Chetwode's inventory financing
In-depth knowledge of company assets
Since its creation in 2003, Chetwode has demonstrated its in-depth knowledge of corporate assets and has specialised in inventory financing in addition to its original expertise in equipment and production tools. In conjunction with ACTENE, a consultancy firm specialising in inventory mobilisation, Chetwode structures inventory financing in complex or multi-jurisdictional situations.
Our inventory financing offer
The aspiration of Chetwode and ACTENE is to assist companies in their inventory financing project and to provide comfort to future creditors.
With this in mind, we propose to structure loans secured by a trust (more properly a fiducie) or a possessory pledge.
Firstly, in the case of a fiducie trust , the inventory is the collateral. If the trust agreement is not respected, the creditor can offer the stock for sale, an aspect which will have been considered beforehand.
Secondly, in the case of a possessory pledge, Chetwode can also buy back a company’s stock via its subsidiary Chetwode Inventory Services.
The stages of the financing project
Firstly, the selection of the most profitable stock to be mobilised in the company
Then, the study of the different types of financing structure most advantageous to the company
Next, drafting a proposal for investors highlighting the benefits and importance of mobilising your stock
Then, the choice of invesors most likely to correspond to and appreciate the project and ensuing negotiation
And finally, the implementation of the project and the monitoring of stocks.
The amount and duration of funding
The amount of funding is a minimum of €5M. The collateral value of the stocks will be higher, the level being determined by an expert appraisal of the stocks.
A first approximative approach can be made on the basis of a documentary or desktop study, which can then be completed by a site visit.
The maturity of the financing is 3 to 7 years with the possibility of deferring repayment in certain cases.
The location of the beneficiary companies
Companies located in France, Belgium, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany or Italy can benefit.
