Enhancing human security mitigating explosive threats in conflict-affected locations globally.
The Revolving Credit Facility
Optima Defence and Security Group enhances human security mitigating explosive threats in conflict-affected locations globally.
Their client list includes international organisations, national governments, non-governmental organisations and private companies. They use their expertise and experience to help those trying to protect their communities and organisations from the growing range of explosive threats.
The organisation provides searches, technical surveys, clearance, mentoring and quality assurance, ensuring that deployed people, organisations and civilians in ‘at risk’ areas have the necessary knowledge and capabilities to remain safe. They clear and make locations safe from improvised explosive devices and explosive hazards.
The organisation also provides threat awareness training and also train search personnel, first responders, IED Disposal (IEDD), Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and forensic exploitation teams to find, clear, manage, control and where appropriate, exploit IED incidents. They help agencies and organisations to interact, operate effectively and coherently in often complex and chaotic situations.
Stephen Bishop, Finance Director explained to us that he had initially approached Just Cashflow in 2015 to facilitate a short term funding stream to expand and develop his business in order to facilitate a MOD contract.
Following this initial use of the Just Cashflow Revolving Credit Facility, Stephen received a call from Jamie of the Just Cashflow Business Growth Team. The Business Growth Team communicates with customers on a regular basis in order to ensure they are happy with the services they are receiving, together with discussing business growth plans.
Jamie initially spoke with Stephen in August 2016 and an extension of the initial term was agreed. Following these communications a relationship was established and Steve later contacted Jamie regarding a potential business opportunity to purchase a business that would enhance the offering and grow the services that the Optima Defence and Security Group offered.
The opportunity had arisen for the Optima Defence and Security Group to acquire an organisation established in 1990 with its origins within the Military Clearance Diving as well as bomb and mine disposal disciplines. They had developed an all-embracing, rapid response diving and munitions location and disposal service. On land and underwater the organisation served governments, industry and civil authorities worldwide.
Realising that environmental management is widely recognised as possibly the most important new challenge facing industry and commerce, as well as non-commercial organisations, clearing the land and seas of the unexploded relics of war fits so well within the Optima Defence and Security Group. The organisation had located and rendered safe, over 900 unexploded bombs on United Kingdom sites. This made the acquisition a very exciting proposition for the Optima Defence and Security Group. The organsiation was profitable and has a strong potential order book of repeat business because of its reputation. All that was required was the funding required for the purchase.
Optima Defence and Security Group had the previous experience of using the Revolving Credit Facility and together with their excellent credit record with Just Cashflow the process of funding the acquisition was to be swift and pain free. Jamie worked closely with Stephen, providing guidance to ensure the process and procedural format went smoothly throughout each stage of the process through to completion. Also determining the appropriate type of facility for this purpose, in this case, our Pay Down Facility.
When asked about working with Just Cashflow Stephen commented that he found working with the team very easy. At every juncture the individuals were proactive, ensuring the process moved seamlessly and swiftly. Stephen added that where there were complications with HSBC, John from Just Cashflow was also proactive making suggestions to assist the process.
Stephen explained that the team was always prompt in responses to questions and supportive throughout the whole process.
When asked if he would use Just Cashflow again, Stephen said yes without a doubt. Due to the nature of his business they required access to funds quickly. Just Cashflow facilitate this business requirement and it was far easier and quicker to use JCF than high street banks.Who have we funded?

We go to great efforts to simplify matters for you and to avoid using banking or legal jargon. There are some matters in this document, however that have to be phrased in a particular way to ensure that we set out the correct legal position to you.
If you don’t understand what any of those terms or conditions mean you should speak to your legal adviser before you accept any offer that we make to you.
These Terms and Conditions and the Facilities to which they apply.
These Terms and Conditions apply to your Facility Agreement (as we define that term below). It is your responsibility to ensure that anyone entering into the Facility Agreement (including the Guarantor, if there is one) reads and retains a copy of these Terms and Conditions for future reference as they contain binding arrangements between you, them and us.

Your Facility Agreement will detail the particular type of facility that you have been offered and any specific terms that apply to it. The types of facility that we offer and to which these Terms and Conditions will apply are:
The above examples are not intended to be exhaustive and these Terms and Conditions may be used to apply to other types of facility that we may offer from time to time.
If you have previously entered into a Facility Agreement with us that relates to one of the above types of Facilities, these Terms and Conditions will apply from the Commencement Date (as that term is defined in your Facility Agreement) and, from that point, any previous terms and conditions applicable to your Facility Agreement will cease to be of effect. For the avoidance of doubt any liabilities owed to us under any Facility Agreement at that point will continue to be outstanding until discharged in full by you.

The APR is the annual rate charged for borrowing and is expressed as a percentage that represents the actual yearly cost of an unsecured loan up to £25,000 over its term. This applies to Just Cash Flow PLC’s fixed term loans as well as our revolving credit facilities. The calculation includes any fees and costs associated with the transaction (if any) and compounding of interest.
APR example for a Revolving Credit Facility for £10,000 over 1 year:
|Monthly Management Fee||Arrangement Fee||Total interest compounded||Total cost of credit||On this basis the APR will be:|
Please note that
The Representative APR (variable) is based on the interest rate we reasonably expect 51% of our customers taking out a loan will pay. In respect of a loan product advertised as ‘27.375% Representative APR (variable)’, this means that 51% of accepted applicants will have an APR of 27.375% and up to 49% will have a different (probably higher) rate.
In the same example of a Revolving Credit Facility for £10K over 1 year with those same costs, Just Cash Flow PLC indicates that its Representative APR is 27.8% being our best estimate of take up, at the advertised rates, of 51% of our customers.
Both the APR and Representative APR (variable) are published so that applicants for our products can conveniently draw comparisons with similar products on offer by other lenders.
