  • RealFlow has recently launched a new product, to help vendors fund selling costs
  • GCI was engaged to refinance existing financiers and fund the expansion of RealFlow's product range

Facility Overview

  • GCI provided a 3 year fully amortising facility with the ability to provide up to $25m in total funding capacity
  • GCI's flexible facility funded RealFlow’s existing core product and new product, which were funded by different financiers
  • The facility removed the inefficiencies and costs of dealing with two separate financiers

Commentary

  • This is GCI’s third transaction settled during the 2021 NSW COVID-19 lockdowns. Due diligence was undertaken remotely without impacting agreed execution timeframes.

Providing Value Added Credit

“While RealFlow has a strong risk framework that has allowed us to avoid any credit or operational losses to date, GCI provided insights from their knowledge of the market that have helped us to enhance and improve our existing credit policy.

The GCI team worked efficiently to carry out due diligence quickly and close on time, having only met shortly before Sydney went into lockdown.”
