Finance Process / Obtaining a Funding
How IIB-DG projects are financed:
IIB-DG project cycle consists of the following stages :
Typically, IIB-DG management approves the project concept and overall structure, including the proposed financing structure and supporting obligations. At this stage, IIB-DGD and the client usually sign an MoU which outlines the responsibilities.
Once the basic business deal (including a signed term sheet) has been negotiated and due diligence has been substantially completed, the project is submitted for Final Review by IIB-DG management.
IIB-DG President and operations team present the project to the Board of Directors for approval unless Board approval has been delegated to management.
IIB-DG and the client sign the deal and it becomes legally binding.
Once repayment conditions are agreed upon and IIB-DG’s conditions are met, the funds are transferred from the IIB-DG’s account to the client’s account.
The client repays the loan amount to IIB-DG under an agreed schedule.

- Review: Once the exit parameters (including valuation) have been substantially established, the project receives a Final Review by IIB-DG management.
