7 SME Financing - Issues

8 SME Financing - Issues Approx. 85% of SMEs in emerging markets suffer from credit constraints Approx. 70% of all emerging-market SMEs do not use any formal credit This means informal sector meets their financial requirements, though at times with stringent conditions Nearly 23.7% of SMEs disappear in two years and nearly 52.7% of SMEs exit the market in four years due to business failure, bankruptcy, or other reasons (Estimates IFC 2010)

9 SME Financing - Issues Recent global economic downturn has further aggravated the problems that already existed Some of the key issues are: Financing assumes material role in SMEs experiencing high growth prospects including opportunities for takeover Very few SMEs are able to finance their expansion through their Cash Flow and have to explore external sources of funding In credit filtration process SMEs are at a disadvantage

10 SME Financing - Issues Lack of successful track record of SMEs creates a perception of greater credit risk among the banks SMEs lack the substantial asset base (collateral) to provide as security against bank loans More pronounced for SMEs in the services sector Limited exposure to Direct Equity financing sources Paucity of private equity investors for SMEs Reluctance by SME to dilute their share holding

11 Participation in SME Equity

12 Participation in SME Equity
Equity financing for SMEs is a complex issue SMEs need a range of financing vehicles at different stages of their development Seed Money to start up the company generally comes from friends, professional contacts and family

13 Participation in SME Equity
Role of Banks Bank’s are redefining SME financing by engaging in equity and quasi-equity investments Leveraging on their understanding of the SME sector and their access to capital Banks are attempting to carve out profitable roles for themselves in the rapidly growing emerging markets by directly taking equity exposure

14 Participation in SME Equity
Role of Banks Banks are also passively participating as investors in SME equity funds Some banks also; Provide Advisory Services Act as meeting point for overseas investors Banks need to acquire & develop skill sets to understand the SME sector, particularly in the area of risk assessment These risks may be addressed through partnerships that leverage the complementary strengths of the bank and its partners A number of models that take these strengths into account have emerged around the world

15 Participation in SME Equity
Exit Mechanism – Issues Like any investment, liquidity of the investment for both buying and selling is crucial Due to certain underlying risks and less number of investors, SME equity is relatively illiquid Traditional stock exchange platforms and trading mechanisms are not suitable to promote trading

Exit Mechanism – Probable Solutions Dedicated SME stock exchanges, or at least separate trading windows with different rules Suitable mechanisms would be required for exit from stressed entities Possibly under the ambit of specialized SME Asset Reconstruction Companies (ARCs)
