At Lionsgate Funding Group, our private equity division provides full service seed funding to catapult exceptional entrepreneurs and project managers to the next level. We provide project financing and venture capital to state, government, private sector, domestic and international firms for research and development, real estate aquisition, expansion and investments. Our goal is to nurture our clients' potential for long-term capital appreciation, and our network has the established relationships necessary to transform emerging companies to lasting ones.
Along with our partners, the Capital Division remains our most active and highest volume area of business. Therefore, we have added considerable Capital to handle these transactions. The consortium now includes individual, private, and Institutional Capital in amounts from $5.0 MM to $500.0 MM both domestically and overseas. These funds are available for any investment grade/principal protected transactions including:
We provide a variety of businesses with the financial resources necessary to close deals and maximize profits. We offer readily available venture capital and project financing to domestic and international firms for research and development, real estate aquisitions, expansion and investments. We supply our clients with the essential tools they need to pursue a lasting capital appreciation.
The original sector of the company founded in 1957 continues to go strong. In fact, due to rising loan to deposit ratios at many institutions, we are seeing a rise in the number and size of transactions. Have you seen the ads recently for banks offering cars for people who open certain size depository accounts? Banks need deposits more than ever to make loans. If you have clients with a bankable loan and offer the bank a compensating balance deposit to ensure it is funded, this is a great marriage. Although the majority of the requests we see are from $100,000.00 to $5,000,000.00, we are currently seeing many in the $10,000,000.00 and up arena.
As a side note, we have four MFR deposit transactions that just rolled over for the 12th year in a row. This has provided a great annuity for the Agent(s) involved.
The most recent development to dramatically affect our Borrowing Made Easier Program was the extension of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act which gives depositors up to $250,000 of FDIC insurance coverage until December 31, 2013. This change makes it much easier and faster to complete larger transactions.
INTERNATIONAL FUNDING & CONSULTING
We offer business consulting, financing and full service investment packages to state, government and private sector companies any where on the planet.
If you have a relationship with a bank and they need deposits, do not hesitate to call us. These deposits do not need a transaction associated with them. Although we focus primarily on compensating balance deposits in our literature, we do make straight brokered deposits into banks. In fact almost all banks in this country are now carrying some level of brokered deposits.
Lionsgate Funding Group understands the needs of our clients and is posited to serve those needs. We recognize that you may not only need to secure financing for your clients, but also may need to extend your professional network to achieve your business goals. We have already done the hard work, and have an extensive network that you may become a part of. It takes many years and financial capital to develop the presence we have, and it is available to you immediately as a client. The exposure you’ll gain upon becoming a client will translate into guaranteed increase to your bottom line.
As a collaborated partnership effort, we provide leverage capital for a variety of investment grade and principal protected funding transactions. These include but are not limited to:
Investment programs/trading platforms/matched trading. Funding against or monetization of investment grade notes. Real estate funding and consulting. Capital funding secured by documentary letters of credit. Commercial projects that are backed by financial guarantee bonds. Credit/Withdrawal facilities where permitted investments are defined as replacement collateral acceptable to the financial institution. Bridge and Mezzanine financing where there is an acceptable investment grade takeout. Balance sheet enhancements including show money, proofs of funds, etc.. Because of the 25 to 1 leverage our partnership provides, this remains our most active and highest volume area of business. The key principles to remember when considering use of this capital are:
Our funds must remain in an investment grade or principal protected position. The contemplated transaction must be legal. You must have the ability to cover the initial cost of capital (usually 4 points). We can place capital in almost any domestic or international financial institution that is rated investment grade (A1/P1 or better). The Lionsgate Funding group includes our own capital, individual, private, and institutional capital. Our minimum size transaction is $5.0 Million and we can handle transactions well over $500 Million.
If you have a transaction that you think can utilize this capital you should contact us. We have considerable experience and expertise in capital markets and finance. Combining our expertise and creativity we will work to ensure a good fit between your transaction and our capital. We maintain Prime Broker Status with several major financial institutions, operate as QIB’s (Qualified Institutional Buyer), and have access to several TFI (taxable fixed income) desks at the major brokerage houses. We also have considerable experience in bond underwriting including 144A offerings. We look forward to hearing from you and forming a mutually profitable relationship.
WE UTILIZE STAPLED FINANCING
What is Stapled Financing?
"Stapled financing" colloquially refers to the commitment letter and term sheet provided by a target company's financial advisor containing the principal terms of a financing package that is "stapled" to the back of the offering materials prepared by such advisors and distributed to potential bidders. The financing is generally not required to be utilized by the buyer, and arises in connection with the sale of both public and private companies, including subsidiaries and divisions.
