Sandfield Capital, a lendtech company that provides loans to individuals pursuing legal claims, has secured a £20m credit facility via Ampla Finance to enable it to significantly expand its operations. The funding is the first tranche of a £100m fundraise being led by private debt finance specialist Altimapa Capital, which is transforming the way SMEs secure funding by engaging directly with a network of over 600 institutional investors.

In January 2020, Altimapa successfully secured a $5 million international receivables funding facility for Networked Energy Services Corporation (NES) based in California, USA. This facility upon drawdown was used to settle an existing Bank loan and provide working capital for growth.

Project Ignite

"Altimapa were very straightforward to deal with, and were able to advise on the best way to handle negotiations with the most interested lenders. In the end we received multiple termsheets with offers of the sum we wanted, on broadly the terms we had been told to expect right at the start. Pedro, Claire and the rest of the team did a great job in finding us the debt we needed to expand our business."

£6 million Growth Capital Facility, Progress to Excellence

In May 2018, Altimapa successfully secured a 5-year interest-only growth capital loan for Progress to Excellence and its owner a2e Industries. This capital was used to fund a pipeline of acquisitions and to allow the management team to increase its stake in the business.
