Unkapt is an alternative lending, cross-border capital raising platform offering APAC small and lower middle market issuers (SMEs) the opportunity to use innovative financing to raise capital among a network of accredited investors. It offers investee firms the opportunity to use, inter-alia, non-dilutive financing instruments for their capital issuance. Some of the non-dilutive financing instruments issuers can offer on Unkapt are:
This allows SMEs to issue unrated fixed or floating debt security and provide an opportunity to investors to invest in the unlisted corporate bond market.
Issuers can capitalise on their future revenue (and associated cash flow) to raise capital and service the funding off that top line. Revenue entitlement notes™ mitigate issues related to, inter-alia, valuation gap and investment exit, and provide investment returns certainty to investors.
Demand dividend, a medium term debt financing instrument, is akin to revenue entitlement notes™ save for the repayment is made out of free cash flow rather than top line.
On the buy-side, Unkapt provides investors with the opportunity to access and invest into curated deals at no cost to them. Investors are able to expand their deal pipeline through Unkapt and explore non-equity investment opportunities, which provide investors with income yield positions to build on their existing investment mandate and/or as part of their investment portfolio diversification.
