Ubequity Capital Partners Inc. To Launch New Specialty Finance Division.
TORONTO – Ubequity Capital Partners Inc. (“Ubequity”) is pleased to announce the launch of Ubequity Specialty Finance Corp. (“USFC”), a new affiliate organization to focus on securitization and other asset backed opportunities. Daryl Ching has joined USFC as President and Board Member in this new venture, and Richard Meloff, Managing Director at Ubequity, will also join as a Board Member.
Daryl has over 10 years of securitization experience. He has executed and originated numerous securitization transactions in various asset classes at RBC Capital Market and Coventree. He most recently completed a $25 million private securitization for Clubb Finance Corp., an independent automotive dealer floor plan lender.
Under Daryl’s direction, USFC will provide securitization and asset-based financing in the auto and equipment sectors. USFC intends to provide these financing solutions to small to mid-size businesses. Securitization is a form of asset based financing that mitigates small business risk through a number of structural enhancements, such as a sale of assets, a backup servicer and the lock up of cash.
"Ubequity has had tremendous success growing small to mid-size businesses,” says Ubequity CEO Martin Doane, “This great new initiative will focus on providing financing to companies that have a scalable business model and a strong management team, but do not necessarily have the prerequisites to qualify for traditional bank financing. Daryl Ching brings a wealth of experience to our team and we are very confident about the success of this initiative.”
"While the media has focused on subprime borrowing, the non-bank asset-backed market did fill an important function, providing lower cost and more flexible capital to small and mid-size businesses. Since the collapse of this market in August 2007, the void has not been filled,” says USFC President Daryl Ching “We will be looking to implement innovative funding solutions for small businesses that will level the playing field in Canada."
