  • What is the repayment schedule of loans?
    Our organization provides term loans with flexible repayment options ranging from 3 to 30 years. It's important to note that we do not offer short-term revolving lines of credit. Nevertheless, our loan products can be used in conjunction with existing short-term, asset-based credit lines for accounts receivable and purchase order financing, which may be provided by other institutions.
  • What is the cost of ABVIG Partner’s financing?
    ABVIG Partner's loan offerings provide a compelling value proposition for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and their principals, offering a cost-effective alternative to mezzanine debt and equity financing. Loans extended to overseas-based borrowers are typically linked to the LIBOR and are subject to quarterly or semi-annual adjustments, while those extended to U.S.-based borrowers are linked to the U.S. Prime Rate and are adjusted accordingly. We also offer fixed interest rate options under most of our programs. The overall cost of our loans is dependent on several factors, including the loan amount, term, structure, creditworthiness of the borrower, and project requirements. Following an initial assessment, ABVIG Partners provides prospective borrowers with an estimate of loan costs. We remain committed to transparency in our lending practices and strive to ensure that our clients are well-informed about the terms and conditions of their loan arrangements.
  • How long will ABVIG and its partners take to review our loan request, and if approved, close the loan?
    ABVIG Partners has established a streamlined process for evaluating loan applications. Upon receipt of a comprehensive business plan, including relevant financial information, we will respond within 15 business days to express our interest in considering the loan. If we are interested, we will provide you with a list of additional information that we require to facilitate the underwriting process. Once we have received all the necessary information and internal approval has been granted, we aim to close the loan within 30 to 90 days, depending on which of our loan programs is the best fit for your specific needs. Our goal is to provide our clients with a seamless experience throughout the loan application process, keeping them informed every step of the way.
  • Do ABVIG Partners finance start-up businesses?
    ABVIG Partners is open to financing Greenfield projects initiated by established businesses seeking to explore new product lines or expand into new geographic locations. In the event that your loan request does not align with our existing loan programs, we will leverage our industry connections to refer you to other financing sources that may be better equipped to meet your specific needs. Our team remains committed to providing personalized service to our clients and ensuring that they have access to the most appropriate financing solutions available. We strive to maintain a strong network of partners within the industry to ensure that our clients are able to explore all viable financing options.
  • How do we apply to ABVIG Partners a loan and services?
    ABVIG Partners requires a comprehensive set of documentation to conduct an initial assessment of any loan or service request. This includes a detailed business plan, ownership information, two to three years of fiscal financial statements, as well as the most recent interim financial statements. Additionally, we require information pertaining to the proposed loan amount and intended uses. To initiate a productive dialogue with ABVIG Partners, we encourage you to submit a letter of intent (LOI). In the event that your project requires technical formatting to meet donor requirements, ABVIG and its technical partners may be able to provide financial proposal preparation assistance for a fee. Our team of experienced financial consultants and advisors works in close collaboration with international and local professional business advisors, including investment bankers, business and financial consultants, and accountants. We pride ourselves on designing custom term loan structures that are tailored to meet our clients' specific needs. Our ultimate objective is to provide our clients with a comprehensive suite of financial solutions that allow them to achieve their business goals: The Advisor provides its services to prospective borrowers for a fee. This includes service fees as well as success fees or commission charges, which can range from 1% to 40% based on the required services and the amount involved. The Advisor assists prospective borrowers in developing their business plans and projections. Upon completion, ABVIG will address the Letter of Intent to both the Advisor and the prospective borrower, as well as any lending investors. To ensure timely payment, Advisor's retainer and success fees may be financed and disbursed at closing. ABVIG facilitated loans are designed to preserve existing shareholder ownership and control, which makes them highly attractive to family-owned and private equity-controlled businesses. When partnering with ABVIG loan partners and investors, clients can take advantage of our international lending expertise, as well as our flexibility to finance various types of transactions and projects. Our track record of successfully closing deals around the world further highlights our commitment to delivering outstanding results to our clients.
