Lending: From A Banker’s Viewpoint
2 Sources of Repayment Banks typically rely on three main sources of repayment Cash Flow from Operations Guarantor Support Collateral / Security
3 5 C’s of Credit Character Is the collateral sufficient as a source of repayment? If the collateral must be liquidated, is the realizable value enough to repay principal, outstanding interest and cover the bank’s administrative costs of liquidation? What are economic and market conditions that could impair the entity’s ability to service the debt and repay the loan? Does the entity recognize these risks and have plans to mitigate them? Does the borrower demonstrate a commitment to honor his or her transactions and keep promises even under adverse circumstances? Capacity Conditions Capital Collateral Does the entity demonstrate the capacity to apply the loan funds? Does management have a business plan? Are plant and equipment sufficient? Are marketing and product delivery well developed? Does the organization have sufficient assets to absorb normal business risk?
4 The Loan Application Ensure that the loan application is complete and accurate Core bank loan application information often includes: o Historical business financial information (2 years) o Form 990, Return of organization exempt from income tax (2 Years) o Interim financial statements along with accounts receivable and payable aging reports if applicable Alternative (micro) loan application is similar, but often allows some flexibility – ask questions!
