For firms and high net worth individuals that are seeking non-purpose capital, stock loans are a good option. In today’s banking climate, borrowing from the best financial institutions has become a hassle-filled and unpleasant experience. Potential borrowers are sure to see lower loan to value ratios coupled with much more stringent credit requirements. Those seeking high ratios and have less than stellar credit are beginning to turn elsewhere for their non-purpose capital needs. Equity, or stock, loans are one way to raise capital without jumping through the hoops of a typical bank’s multi-layered lending process. Equities First is a long-term player in this market space and has helped many clients to raise capital via this alternative vehicle.
Founded in 2002, Equities First has generated over 650 transactions and lent over $1.4 billion to its many clients that are both enterprise businesses and high net worth individuals. The flexibility of this instrument is one of the many reasons that Equities First recommends this option to its clients. The equity loan is made at a fixed interest rate over the loan term, usually set between three and four percent. The underlying collateral of stocks provides security for a non-recourse loan and there are no instances of margin calls as there are in the case of margin loans.
Equities First is here to help guide you through the process and review the ways that a shareholder loan can help to meet your capital raising needs. This vehicle is a good fit when the time in which the funds are needed is tight, as well as in circumstances where the credit profile of the borrower is not terribly strong. Stock loans also provide a bit of a hedge to the underlying assets in the event that their value decreases over the life of the loan. Learn More.
Nexbank has been providing financial services to the residents of Dallas Texas and beyond for the past century. Lately, they have been pursuing initiatives and deals that would improve their performance and at the same time benefit their customers. The initiative that they came up with was the senior unsecured notes. These have been offered publicly and so far, more than $155 million has been issued.
The arrangement states that the notes will mature on the 16th of March 2026, however, the notes will start being callable in the March of 2021. The deal has been created such that for the first five years, the notes will bear interest at a fixed rate of 5.5 percentage points. Then, when the first five years have ended, they will spread the rates over a 3 month period. The spread will be based on a 3 month LIBOR of 435.5 basis points. The better business bureau took time to rate the transaction and deemed it as commendable while the Kroll Bond rating agency approved the deal.
The bank hopes that all the profits that will come from this deal will cover the debts issues of the company with the remainder catering for various other corporate uses. The placement agent who brokered this deal was Sandler O’Neil and partners. John Holt, the CEO of Nexbank stated that this transaction was crucial for the bank as it would help them solidify their balance sheet and attain much needed capital for other investments. John, who also serves as the Chief Operations Officer stated that the move was a great success for the bank because it would really help the development of their organization.
