Case Study

PPA Group Limited

CBILS business interruption loan for PPA Group Limited.

We were delighted to help Stevenage based PPA Group Limited to successfully access funding through the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS).

Established in 1987, PPA Group Limited has evolved into a brand that is widely recognised in the Travel and Technology environment. The Group’s impressive portfolio comprises of Leisure Online, Agency Wholesaling, Fulfilment and Travel Technology divisions working both in the UK domestic market as well as on an international basis.

As a result of COVID-19, governments placed restrictions on global travel which had an immediate impact on PPA Group’s business activities. Whilst experiencing an interruption to its sales, PPA Group sought our support in accessing funding through the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS).

We helped PPA Group secure an undisclosed CBILS loan to cover the anticipated working capital needs over the next 12-18 months. Along with the swift actions PPA Group’s management team applied to the business, the company will be able to fully withstand the disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Building Value

How we helped PPA Group Limited...

  • Preparation

    Whilst the client had already engaged HSBC, a formal CBILS approach had not been made. This allowed our advice to be considered and gave time to put certain things into place to ensure a successful outcome. We engaged with PPA Group’s owners to understand the nature of the business interruption and actions they had taken. We condensed management information into a concise and compelling lender presentation pack.

  • Financial Modelling

    We worked closely with the Group’s Finance Director to determine the working capital needs over the next 12-18 months. We analysed and modelled cash flow forecasts to determine the required level of funding. We assessed affordability for the benefit of both PPA Group Limited and the bank. This underpinned a detailed funding proposal to support the application to HSBC.

  • Relationship Management

    To allow PPA Group’s owners to focus on running the business, we supported and streamlined the application process and led negotiations with the bank relationship manager. Together we were able to build a robust business case and CBILS application that were sufficient to support the business over the next 12-18 months.
