Small and mid cap bonds

Exchange-traded corporate bonds are a relevant alternative to bank loans. In the past, this type of financing was reserved to large companies. Now there are stock exchange segments for small and medium-sized enterprises that can be used for capital procurement.

Advantages of small and mid cap bonds

The issue of a small and mid cap bond will provide many benefits:

  • Broader financing base, thus more independence from banks
  • Stronger position in negotiations with main banks
  • Low need for collateral. Mostly without collateral or with few covenants
  • Bullet repayment creates liquidity advantages
  • Increase of company's awareness
  • Simplified accounting framework, German HGB accounting is sufficient
  • Leeway for the structuring of the intended use
  • Preparation for the subsequent IPO
