Financing Solutions

If your bank says "no" and you have a viable business, good management and a plan, chances are we can help.

When timely bridge financing is mission critical for a company's growth or recovery, Callidus quickly provides the greatest liquidity and flexibility to enable our clients to execute on their business plan and transition back into the comfort zone of the traditional lending market.

Our Approach

We adopt a business-centric approach when it comes to lending. We look beyond the numbers and consider the whole company including:

  • Accounts receivable and inventory
  • Equipment, real estate and other assets
  • Enterprise value of the company

Callidus is not a liquidator. Rather, we help our clients by:

  • Providing greater liquidity from a company's basket of assets than traditional lenders on a non-dilutive basis
  • Supporting management by quickly providing the greatest amount of flexible capital to help them better execute their plan for growth or turnaround
Financing Options

We offer a variety of facilities including:

  • Revolving lines of credit
  • Term loans, including standalone term loans
  • Distressed lending including:
    • DIP (debtor in possession) loans
    • Acquisition funding out of bankruptcy
    • Stalking Horse bid funding
  • Growth oriented financing in support of:
    • Acquisitions
    • MBO's
    • Inventory builds
    • Seasonal advance facilities
    • Purchase order financing

We are able to provide timely funding, with an average transaction time of four weeks from first meeting to initial draw. Operating in the Canadian and U.S. markets, Callidus will work with any industry with the exception of early stage natural resource exploration and real estate development companies. We target senior debt facilities from $10 million to $75 million, with the ability to complete larger transactions where appropriate.
