Product Development Loans

The current environment for innovation, characterized by access to new technologies and collaboration across ecosystems, is creating demands for companies to accelerate their product and business development.  However, most established companies can only afford to invest a fraction of their profits in order to remain competitive.  Often, the options available to finance the development of new products are limited and impractical.  Commercial banks are not interested providing loans for product development and demand asset collateral, raising additional equity capital creates dilution issues, and government grants offer only partial funding at best.  Xinova provides product development loans to fill this gap.

Xinova finances product development projects by making or sourcing revenue loans to special purpose companies called “Product Development Companies” (PDCs) dedicated to housing these development projects. The PDC is co-owned with our client company developing the product.  Xinova finances the PDC with a loan to pay for the costs and expenses related to the project in exchange for a share of the revenues generated by sales of the developed product over a period of time. These PDCs essentially hire the borrower to manage and execute the project while simultaneously granting it the right to develop the product. In exchange, the PDC receives a share of the revenues (royalty) during the term of the revenue loan contract. The PDC will license rights to manufacture and sell the product to the borrower and/or to other parties involved in commercialization.

Investment returns do not rely on public offerings or M&A transactions. Instead, returns are generated over the life of the revenue loan by royalties paid by the borrower or designated commercial licensees to the PDC.  These returns are potentially enhanced by the equity value of the PDC realizable through an ownership share and option structure designed to facilitate transaction if desired.  Notwithstanding, Product Development Loans are typically exited upon maturity (usually 5 to 10 years).
