Example of a guarantee

An opportunity presents itself to company X to take over a construction materials distribution company established in the South of France. This purchase would allow the company to reach new markets in the South of Europe and to extend its product range. The total amount for this acquisition is 500 000 euros.

The company dips into its available funds and immediately puts up 20% of the needs in connection with its foreign development. SOFINEX then supports it with a subordinated loan and through the granting of a 50% guarantee on the bank financing.
