Corporate Finance

As a business advisor WGA takes a genuine and personal interest in the well-being and financial success of your business.

Today, scarcity of financial resources is the root cause of many businesses cracking under economic pressure. Irresponsible banks, financial institutions and private placement companies have allowed businesses to borrow beyond their capacity, inevitably leading to collapse. Alan Greenspan has stated that: “any informed borrower is simply less vulnerable to fraud and abuse, which” is quite pertinent in this respect.

What is the minimum amount that can be borrowed?

The loan amount can be as low as USD 25 million and as high as half a billion USD. This is purely an indicator and not a rigid scale; loan amounts would be judged on case-to-case basis.
x

What are the main terms of the loan, interest rate, security, LTV ratio?

The main terms of the loan are related to the viability of the business proposal as well as the due diligence conducted by WGA. We seek to ensure that the income and profit generation of the client would adequately satisfy our loan repayment.

Depending on the geographical area as well as other criteria, the interest rate would be 5-7%.

We would require collateral security of assets just like any other standard funding institute. Our standard of evaluating assets is quite competitive.

The LTV ratio would be 80%. However, this is just an indicative figure and WGA can go up to 110-120% LTV.
x

What kind of funding does WGA provide?

We provide senior debts only. Since our rates and processes are one of the most competitive and innovative, we expect our clients to have only WGA as its lending party and back it up with exclusivity contracts.

In case of any previous or existing loans from other parties, WGA will help you to swap these loans at a much competitive rate than the current loan.
x

Do you provide funding against real estate security?

Yes, we do provide funding against real estate security.

x

Following the Sanction Letter, the loan will be registered in two weeks time, in the Holland.

WGA has a well-structured registration process to make it a legally enforceable debt.

The process involves marking lien on assets of the borrower under the jurisdiction of Holland.
x

Why does WGA require registering the loan in Holland?

Its HQ in Holland, therefore it prefers registering the loan in Holland.

What is your due diligence process and what are your specific areas of examination?

As with any lending institution, WGA follows a standard due diligence process.

We require 6 weeks to achieve results, as most of the companies are located overseas.

We check for any record of personal defaults, corporate defaults, bankruptcy proceedings, administrative proceedings or any anti-social activity that the applicant may be involved with.

This assessment is a standard requirement of our corporate policy and its objective is to understand your position in order to serve you better.
x

Can you provide the names of the current clients with whom you are dealing?

Due to a non-disclosure agreement with which we are bound to our clients, we cannot reveal our borrowers. This is in the best interest of our clients, to protect their privacy. Under WGA’s terms of confidentiality, we will not discuss any of our past, present or future clients.

We welcome clients to conduct due diligence on WGA as well as take legal opinion of experts before applying.
x

What is the time limit for debt financing and equity financing?

If both the parties are prima-facie satisfied with each other, an engagement agreement, mutual non-disclosure agreement and authorization letter to conduct due diligence are signed. It can take 14 to 16 weeks from this point to get the loan drawn down.

However, in some cases the time period maybe much shorter if all procedures are straightforward. Contrarily, in case of legal or geographical complications, the time period may extend to more than 16 weeks.

x

Why and how do you provide funds at such low rates?

WGA believes in providing innovative financing solutions. This means doing things differently so as to not burden our borrowers with heavy interest rates. We understand the pressure that is already on today’s businesses and industries. Conventional banks and financing institutions are not helping the situation with their cumbersome loan policies and a pathetic attitude to the borrower’s plight.

This is primarily due to their rigid approach to funding, which does not consider the human factor and stresses more on punishing the defaulters rather than helping them to avoid defaulting.

WGA provides direct funding to the borrowers without any intermediaries in the process. Unlike banks and financing institutions, we are not encumbered by heavy infrastructural overheads. We are therefore able to provide funds at much lower interest rates. Our philosophy is to manage the funds of our shareholders and invest in deserving needs such as maybe yours.
x

Is there any industry or region where you do not want to invest?

WGA would not invest in industries related to gambling and alcohol.
x

In case of equity, what kind of steps you generally take?

WGA cannot define or set up standard steps. Our decisions will depend on the due diligence and feasibility study report.
x

Do you provide revolving loan arrangement?

Yes. This arrangement will depend on your repayment structure. Prompt borrowers will be considered favourably.
x

Under what circumstances can WGA reject my company's application?

WGA practices standard policies of approval and rejection of applications as in the financing and lending industry.

Any history of defaults or important facts relevant to the loan process that can influence the decision making and which is not disclosed by the applicant will be valid grounds of rejection.
