Facility used to acquire short-term trade receivables sourced globally
New York, February 16, 2023 – Crayhill Capital Management, a New York-based, minority-owned private credit manager focused on asset-based investments, announced today the close of a $200 million receivables financing facility with Stenn Technologies, a UK-based SME finance platform. The facility, which will initially be $200 million, expandable to up to $400 million, is collateralized by a diverse portfolio of high-quality, short-term trade receivables. Goldman Sachs provided a committed senior credit facility against the portfolio in the initial amount of $175 million.
Stenn’s technology platform has financed over $12 billion in invoices to date, sourced from users across the globe. Its innovative origination, risk management and servicing platform sources and manages global receivables portfolios at scale with digital infrastructure.
The facility, which extends a successful financing partnership that Crayhill and Stenn established in 2016, is designed to expand Stenn’s product offering and enable it to remain at the forefront of providing innovative working capital solutions to SMEs. The facility will provide financing to SMEs that sell goods and services to buyers domestically and internationally in over 70 countries.
The senior financing facility from Goldman Sachs extends an existing facility it has provided to Stenn and Crayhill since December 2021 to finance portfolios of trade finance receivables.
Raj Savai, Managing Director at Crayhill said, “We are thrilled to continue our long-standing partnership with Stenn by providing capital for this trade receivables portfolio. Stenn is the market leader in an underserved financial sector that has enormous unmet demand. Stenn’s successful integration of cutting-edge technology to aid in their origination and risk management activities makes them an ideal partner to continue to invest and grow with in this space.”
