How It Works

Revenue-Based Funding

  • Libertas is industry agnostic but focuses on established businesses with revenues and are experiencing growth.
  • Libertas provides RBFs based on revenues and cash flows. Institutional funding amounts typically range between $500k – $10mm.
  • RBFs are priced using factor rates instead of interest because our fundings are not loans. Factors typically range between 1.17 to 1.25 and are typically repaid over an estimated term of up to 12 months and can be customized to adjust remittance schedules to incorporate seasonality. Customers utilizing the RBF product may be eligible for steep prepayment discounts.

    • $1mm RBF pricing example with 1.2 factor with an estimated term of 12 months with weekly remittances:
      • Libertas provides the company with RBF funds of $1mm. The company has chosen to make remittances on a weekly basis (daily, bi-weekly and monthly remittances schedules are also available). The company makes remittances in the amount of $23,809.52 to Libertas starting one week after funding and every week thereafter until the balance of $1,200,000 is paid off. This example does not reflect any available prepayment discounts.
