Mezzanine Loans

About Mezzanine Loans

A mezzanine loan is a subordinate, non-traditional loan that blends equity and debt. It has its advantages and disadvantages, one of the latter being that a business might have to sacrifice equity. The interest is high, but it is tax-deductible. Typically, mezzanine loans are granted to companies that have a track record of success and are rapidly expanding.

Why do businesses need Mezzanine Loans?

With mezzanine financing, companies that are expanding rapidly can receive funding without the rigid terms that are associated with traditional bank business capital loans. They are then able to support their growth and increase in value. Sometimes this expansion involves the acquisition of another company. A business with a track record of growth and a need to expand rapidly is a prime candidate for mezzanine financing.

What is a Mezzanine loan?

Mezzanine loans are subordinate, non-traditional loans that combine debt and equity. They have high, but tax-deductible interest rates and are typically granted to rapidly-expanding businesses that have a track record of success. As a nontraditional business funding option, mezzanine financing is not associated with all of the rigid terms and conditions of traditional funding solutions. When a significant amount of capital is needed for a project or business acquisition, they are a viable business funding option. Oftentimes, traditional lenders are not even willing to meet the need.

How do Mezzanine loans work?

Mezzanine loans are subordinate, high-risk loans that blend equity and debt. If there is a default, the lender has a right to an equity interest in the company after senior lenders are paid. If the borrower goes out of business, the mezzanine lender is forced to take a loss if no assets remain after senior debt is paid off. The high-risk nature of a mezzanine loan translates into high interest rates. However, the interest is tax-deductible. Additionally, it can be figured into the loan’s balance and deferred if a scheduled interest payment cannot be made.

What are the pros and cons of mezzanine financing?

For the borrower, one con of mezzanine financing is that the interest rate is high. However, it is tax deductible. In addition, interest can be rolled into the loan balance and deferred for a period of time if a scheduled interest payment cannot be made. That is not an option with senior debt. And even though the interest rates are high, a company that grows quickly can restructure its mezzanine loan(s) into a senior loan with a lower interest rate.
