SaaS Funding’s provides senior and subordinated amortizing loans with terms ranging from 6-to-36 months depending upon size and growth. SaaS Funding will also selectively evaluate bridge lending opportunities and other special situations. Loan size range from $250k to $3 mm with the ability to provide additional tranches based on performance. SaaS Funding has the ability to participate in larger transactions by working with strategic partners.
Unique Point of Difference – Senior to Subordinated
SaaS Funding’s flexible lending products are meant to fill the void left by traditional senior lenders as well major venture debt firms. SaaS is equally comfortable in senior and subordinated and in many transactions will start as senior lender to finance a company to its desired long-term senior lender and then subordinate.
Subordinated Debt Capabilities
We have market leading capabilities in offering subordinated debt to bootstrapped software and tech companies that have capital needs between $250k and $3 mm. We work in partnership with senior lenders to finance additional capital needs in order to stretch equity or create exponential value. We are focused on being a “lead in” or “in addition to” a senior lender. Our fund structure enables us to start off as senior lender and then subordinate to a senior once our clients find the right long-term senior lender.
SaaS Funding has a unique structure whereby we do not require covenants in order to provide maximum flexibility. This covenant free capital is SaaS Funding’s special sauce that we allow to easily transition to a subordinated position. A small equity stake in the form of warrants is generally required in return for flexible amortization and no covenants. The overall cost of capital is much less than equity.
