PROTEO can provide short term ( up to 1 year ), and medium term ( up to 5 years ) equipment purchase financing to Buyers around the world. International sales of all kinds of capital equipment under our supported categories are eligible for export finance, as long as the buyer is a well-established creditworthy company located in one of the many emerging foreign markets where PROTEO does business. The equipment can be manufactured in the USA or in another country. Likewise, the equipment may be shipped from the USA, MEXICO or elsewhere, although some export finance transactions may need to be invoiced by a vendor located in the USA and MEXICO. Most of the equipment sales for which PROTEO arranges medium-term (multi-year) export finance are between $500,000 and $10,000,000 in size. We have the capacity to support larger export finance transactions, but most of the export finance demand we encounter is for capital equipment in this six- to seven-figure range. Exporters of smaller-ticket equipment may be able to use shorter payment terms to their international customers, up to twelve months. Minimum transaction size is USD $10,000. Cross-border equipment financing usually takes the form of a loan although in some cases leasing may be feasible. Payment terms for export finance typically range from two to five years in semi-annual or quarterly installments, with interest rates and loan conditions more favorable than those available in the foreign buyer’s own country. Export finance transactions are structured either as supplier credits or buyer credits. Under a supplier credit, the foreign buyer pays the exporter for the equipment with a promissory note which the exporter finances, discounts, or sells to a bank or other lender immediately following shipment of the equipment. Compared to buyer credits (see below), supplier credits leverage the relationship between the exporter and the foreign buyer to engender faster turnaround times, more flexible insurance underwriting, and lower export finance costs. In some cases the exporter may need to retain a small portion of the default risk on the foreign buyer. Under a buyer credit, the foreign buyer’s promissory note is addressed to a bank or other lender who pays the exporter’s invoice immediately following shipment of the equipment. This kind of export finance transaction is made possible because the lender obtains its own export credit insurance policy on the promissory note. Compared to supplier credits (see above), buyer credits may take longer to get underwritten and funded. The lender needs to visit the foreign buyer to perform its own due diligence. The insurance underwriting process is also more involved because the bank/lender is typically not a direct participant in the underlying trade transaction. Export finance using a buyer credit structure is most feasible if the foreign buyer is a very large company with audited financial statements or if the transaction qualifies for support from the Export-Import Bank of the U.S. While Ex-Im Bank underwriting typically requires longer turnaround times than private-sector transactions, Ex-Im Bank may be prepared to work with smaller buyers, suppliers, and export finance deals.
Project finance is the long-term financing of infrastructure and industrial projects based upon the projected cash flows of the project rather than the balance sheets of its sponsors. Usually, a project financing structure involves a number of equity investors, known as 'sponsors', as well as a 'syndicate' of banks or other lending institutions that provide loans to the operation. They are most commonly non-recourse loans, which are secured by the project assets and paid entirely from project cash flow, rather than from the general assets or creditworthiness of the project sponsors, a decision in part supported by financial modeling. The financing is typically secured by all of the project assets, including the revenue-producing contracts. Project lenders are given a lien on all of these assets and are able to assume control of a project if the project company has difficulties complying with the loan terms.
PROTEO has an extensive network of investment bankers, investors, financiers, insurance companies, venture capitalists and strategic partners in the USA, Europe, México and Asia. We are able to provide project financing in many politically stable countries. Sometime, 100% financing may be possible.
