The MGroup Corporate Finance
Support for clients (and potential clients) dealing with the impact of Coronavirus

Your concern
We understand the impact and uncertainty caused by the massive change in the economy and how this may
impact your clients, staff and supply chain.

Whilst we continue to work with clients to raise funds and complete transactions, we wanted to make sure
you were aware that we are still open to support you, should you need help.

What you are doing
With a number of sectors already seeing pressure, with over-demand and lack of demand for different
products and services, a large number of clients are putting new business protocols in place to deal with the
current, developing situation.

Whilst doing that, it can be difficult to focus on so many things at the same time. You are focused on the
business operation, staff and your customers.

You will have seen or heard on the television, radio or internet about the Government’s “Coronavirus
Business Interruption Loan Scheme” – this is a re-branding of the Enterprise Finance Guarantee scheme and
the amended terms have not yet been agreed.

The existing EFG scheme required businesses to meet affordability criteria and to have charged all assets
(of the business and the owners) before it could be used. We are awaiting confirmation of how it will be
accessed but that remains unclear at this time.

How we can help
Just as important as keeping invoices being issued is ensuring there is sufficient cashflow to trade through
the current uncertainty. This is where we could help. Our Corporate Finance team have worked in the Banks,
so understand what your Bank needs for you to arrange a facility or borrow money from them. One of our
services is to work with clients to obtain overdrafts or other facilities from their existing bank.

We are used to dealing with the retail banks, secondary lenders, fintech and secured lenders to ensure our
clients have the best opportunity to access the funding they require.

Through our existing relationships with a wide range of funders, we are able to help you access the funding
you need for your business, whether this is through your existing banking relationship or an alternative lender
that we can introduce.
