Senior Stretch Loan

A senior stretch loan, or overadvance loan, is a hybrid debt instrument consisting of both asset-based loan and cash flow loan. Such loans are suitable for two types of companies:

  • Companies that have substantial asset base but do not have stable or predictable cash flows. For example, troubled or turnaround companies. Cash flow loans would be much smaller and more expensive for these companies.
  • Companies with healthy cash flows but lower assets. In this case, a pure asset-based loan would be insufficient.

For both types, the senior stretch debt structure takes advantage of the combination of the company's assets and cash flow to make significantly more debt available than would have been otherwise.

Famous quotes containing the words loan, senior and/or stretch:

    Neither a borrower nor a lender be,
    For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
    And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.
    This above all: to thine own self be true,
    And it must follow, as the night the day,
    Thou canst not then be false to any man.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Never burn bridges. Today’s junior prick, tomorrow’s senior partner.
    Kevin Wade, U.S. screenwriter, and Mike Nichols. Katharine Parker (Sigourney Weaver)

    Idleness and constancy fix the mind to what it finds easy and agreeable. This habit always confines and cramps up our knowledge; and no one has ever taken the trouble to stretch and carry his understanding as far as it could go.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)
