Debt financing

Avida Debt Financing is an alternative lender (credit market company), providing debt solutions to Nordic financial sponsors (Private Equity funds and investment companies) and corporates. Our approach and lending strategy means we can provide more supportive and flexible capital compared to senior banks, delivered by an experienced team of debt professionals.

Our lean organization enables a quick decision-making process, giving borrowers visibility on funding and the flexibility to pursue growth opportunities. 

When is Avida a relevant partner?

  • Acquisition financing (LBOs, MBOs, M&A)
  • Working Capital Financing (RCF / Factoring) 
  • Refinancing and recapitalizations
  • Special situations/Turnarounds

Lending strategy

  • Debt quantum up to SEK 150m (however, significant larger exposure possible with factoring)
  • Short-term bridge loan to five-year term loans
  • Flexibility in terms of structure (repayment, covenants, etc.)
  • Home markets Sweden, Norway, and Finland but can consider most European jurisdictions  
  • We invest in opportunities rather than specific sectors
