Export Venture Debt

If you’re experiencing high growth and need working capital to support an export contract(s) between funding rounds, but your bank is unable to help, Efic may be able to assist you through our Export Venture Debt (EVD) solution.

EVD is a loan, not an equity injection. The funding will attach to the export contract you have secured and may be revolving in nature.

Efic provides you with the working capital to assist you in meeting your obligations in connection with the export contract(s). The funds are repaid through your customers’ payments, with redraws available if needed.

Efic’s EVD solution helps you with contract-specific requirements allowing your investment funding to focus on more strategic aspects of your business. EVD might also provide an alternative to selling equity for things like inventory at lower valuations.
