Q&A

Q&A

General Questions
 

  • Are there any up-front fees? No, we do not charge any upfront fees whatsoever for our consulting/brokering services. See below for our consulting service arrangements.

  • What exactly does SalemBridge Advisors do? We provide financial consulting, financial modeling and financial capital for small and lower middle market companies.


 

Financial Capital Services
 

  • Is SalemBridge Advisors a lender? No, we are not a direct lender but rather a clearinghouse for financial transactions with a network of hundreds of lenders and investors consisting of banks, credit unions, hedge funds, family offices, private equity firms, private investors and venture capital companies. SalemBridge does from time-to-time make small equity investments into companies but we are not a private equity fund.

  • How many points does SalemBridge charge for arranging a financing transaction? We strive to be reasonable with our fees and avoid being greedy. For transactions over $1MM, our fee typically ranges from 0.5% - 1% of the total gross transaction amount. For transactions under $1MM, we typically like to charge only between 2% - 3.5% of the total gross transaction amount. This is very reasonable compared to our competitors as the average fee for under $1MM usually consist of ranges between 4% - 6%, which is very expensive for a borrower.

  • Are there any upfront fees? No. There are no upfront fees whatsoever.

  • Who is qualified? This is another way we differ from most of our competitors. We do not have specific layers of qualifications for our financial products as each program requires a different set of standards. Instead we work with companies that either have cash-flows or tangible assets to collateralize. See our Our Clients page. to see what sectors and industries we cater to.

  • Do you provide equity capital? We work with various private equity groups and family offices. We do not raise equity as a typical investment bank. We rather make introductions to equity capital sources. We also do not provide equity capital for seed capital or venture capital situations. See our Private Equity page.


 

Financial Consulting Services
 

  • How would an ongoing consulting arrangement go? Our consulting services are structured a little different as opposed to single financial transaction brokering. Sometimes they can be a combination of both (especially for interim-CFO consulting roles) but typically our consulting process would require a monthly fee or equity-based compensation depending on the type of project. Our monthly fee would be due at the end of the month and not upfront. Our consulting arrangement can be canceled at any time and do not require long-term locked-in clauses.

  • Isn’t charging a monthly fee even at the end of the month an upfront fee? No. We do not require any upfront fee after immediately signing a retainer-based consulting arrangement with us. Instead, we delay the payment for 30 days and provide a checklist of items or milestones we seek to accomplish during those first 30 days to prove that we are serious about earning our fee. If this is feasible with you and your team, we can continue progress into the next month. We are flexible about our agreements and like to ensure that both parties are benefitting from the arrangement.

  • For an ongoing consulting assignment, what would be the monthly fee? The fee varies but we structure the fee according to your budget. Unlike competitors, our fees are capped at reasonable levels and always comes with quality work as we like to earn our fee.

 

 

Financial Modeling Services
 

  • For financial modeling services, what are the fees? For our Financial Modeling service, we can either charge hourly or a one-time fee due at the end of the project. We typically like to structure it as a one-time fee instead of “milking the system” like so many of our competitors. Sometimes companies like to take their sweet time when they are being paid hourly. We give the value of our work upfront.

  • Are your financial models custom-made or pre-made templates? Both. Depending on your request, we can provide both custom-made financial models or templates. If you are in a unique sector (such as construction, mining, etc.), it is best to design a custom-made financial model that correlates with your company’s business model.

  • Do you charge for edits? We allow our clients to receive 1 free edit request per model. Any requested edits will be on a case-by-case basis regarding price.
